Biography

NEW ALBUM “Charisma” - free / pay-as-you-like http://disasteradio.bandcamp.com !

Luke Rowell, aka Disasteradio, is an underground music legend in New Zealand. He began writing 80s-inspired synth pop a decade ago and has released eight albums, from a hand-packaged cassette, a song on Atari cartridge and most recently his latest online full-length album ‘Charisma’.

Leading critical NZ music magazine Real Groove ranked ‘Visions’ the best NZ album of the year in 2007. The follow-up - 2010’s ‘Charisma’ was released as mp3-only, free / pay-as-you-like in October 2010.

Disasteradio has toured his unique show the length of New Zealand numerous times and in 2008 finally got noticed overseas when legendary German producer Hans Nieswandt invited him to perform at Worldtronics in Berlin. Promoters and fans demanded more after an introductory tour of France, Germany and the UK in ‘08. 2009 saw a four-month tour playing 40+ shows across 14 countries, from the USA to UK and most of central and western Europe.

Disasteradio’s sound is ‘electro-rock’ or ‘digital pop’ and has been described as a cross between Dan Deacon and Kraftwerk. Although a live performance is certainly the best way to enjoy Disasteradio, his latest album ‘Visions’ has only received praise from critics.
