Biography

Regurgitator formed in late 1993 by core members Quan Yeomans and Ben Ely. Martin Lee played drums until departing in 1999 after recording …art and the subsequent tour. He was replaced by current drummer Peter Kostic (Front End Loader, The Hard-Ons). The touring band has also been supplemented by various extra players over the years the most notable being their first additional keyboardist Shane Rudken (Ponyloaf, Emporium) for a few years in the late 90s, along with Seja Vogel (Sekiden , Seja) on keyboards and backing vocals for a stint across 2006 to 2010 including treking to Rio to record Love and Paranoia - she also accompanied them on the Retrotech tour and various one offs when suitable.

They have released numerous EPs and albums that they have recorded in dubiously idiosyncratic scenarios: Tu-Plang (1996) in the remote jungle outside Bangkok; the triple platinum selling Unit (1997) in a condemned Fortitude Valley warehouse as wreckers waited outside; …art (1999) in a sun soaked Byron Bay beach house lapping up the waves; Eduardo & Rodriguez Wage War on T-Wrecks (2001) in the thick cigar smoke of Andy Gill’s London lounge-room; the post Warner release of Mishmash (2004) done in a glass box in Federation Square as part of the disturbing Band in a Bubble parody of reality shows and it’s way before it’s time multiple streaming media mayhem; Love and Paranoia (2007) in a bullet riddled studio in Rio de Janeiro under the looming rock arms of Corcovado; SuperHappyFunTimesFriends

    I thought Ben killed it too. 'Bong in My Eye' in Sydney was like a religious experience. Love the new album, by the way. Sounds like a it picks the best parts from both their solo work, which was missing on 'Love and Paranoia'

    Just came from annual sail tour in Townsville, can't believe how great it was. Quan rips it up so good.

    WTF... 'My Friend Robot' is the most popular track? I never noticed, and never would have guessed. +1 for Ben.

    I keep discovering this amazing band over and over again. They are just so diverse. From raw punk to industrial.

    I remember asking Quan and Ben to play 'Track One' at Homebake 1999 via a live chat on the Juice website. That was... fuck, a long time ago.
