Biography

Astral Travel is the name for two bands. One is from Perth and the other is from Santa Cruz.

Astral Travel from Perth, Western Australia

Astral Travel, as we now know it, was formed in early 2006, as a way for the members to escape their respective high school nightmares.The members were all born in Perth, but did not all attend the same high school as has been incorrectly stated in the past. The band write songs about living in a isolated but vibrant city, the western myth of success, surfing, death, luck, aging, happiness, poverty, drugs and video games.

Tim Loughman began on guitar/bass, graduating to drums and has been known to lay down a synth track or two. Tim was the founding guitarist for Magic Window and Golden Staph, and has also played drums in Bermuda. Tim has been reincarnated as producer/virtuoso, Basic Mind.

Ruby Jeppe started as the original drummer, graduating to bass and finally ending up on guitar/keyboard/synthesizer. Ruby shares vocal duties with Amber. Ruby was a founding synth operator of Healing Crystal Meth and has also moonlighted in Golden Staph.

Amy Loughman has always stuck to guitar (although a closet multi instrumentalist). In her spare time she is a film auteur.

Amber Gempton tried her hand at guitar and drums before settling for the position of bassist. She also carries vocal duties. Amber played bass in Magic Window, and helped Golden Staph out when they couldn’t find a singer who could scream loud enough.

Our first show was with the Bad Taste and Mental Powers at the Panther Palace in 2007. Since 2007 we have played over 100 shows with numerous hiatus during which members travelled and got an education.

    p.p.s. can a tiny perth band help if people record and listen to them as Astral Travel? we don't have control over our listeners. anything we choose to release will probably be on vinyl anyway so don't get all caught up in last.fm. i personally listen under the name Arse Unravel but i can't very well tell everyone to do that can i!? far too confusing for the public.

    i like how one of the top listeners is for the joke band. you are clearly not as cosmically at peace as your name tries to suggest, there are quite a few bands on last.fm who manage to share a name, who are the people getting Seriously Confused? maybe people who think the world runs on lawsuits. oh p.s. don't send silly myspace messages without allowing a reply in future ok! xoxoxo
