Biography

At least four musical acts are known to go by the name Sidewinder:

1) Sidewinder are from Canberra, Australia and released three EP’s (“T Star” and “Yoko Icepick” both in 1993 and “The Gentle Art Of Spoonbending” in 1995) and two full albums (debut album “Atlantis” from 1996 and “Tangerine” in 1997).

Sidewinder managed to combine the best of the dirty sounding 60’s with modern pop/rock and a just the slightest hint of psychedelica as well. On “Tangerine” they even expanded their musical style by adding modern electronic beats and computer based studio-trickery to the already very addictive mix. “Tangerine” was released in September 1997, The album received fantastic reviews and made quite a few year end top 10 lists for 1997.

The singles from this album were “Titanic Days”, “Here She Comes Again”, “God” and “Mummy/Daddy”.

M. Craft (Martin) has gone on to have a solo career.

2) Taking his name from the Lee Morgan standard, Scottish based DJ and musician Alan Bryden has recorded a series of singles and an album as SIDEWINDER for the now defunct FENETIK MUSIC, a subsidiary of techno/electronic label SOMA RECORDS. His multiple sample based track ‘Stanways Revenge’ (SOMA LP 16S) in 1999 caused a minor tremor amongst jazz dance DJs around the world and after appearing on Groove Armada’s Back To Mine mix CD for DMC in 2004 (BACK CD4) went on to appear on numerous other downtempo/leftfield/jazz compilations. An album RESOLOUTION was released in the UK in 2003 (TIK CD001) and licensed to KSR in Japan in 2004 (KCCD-124). The album was preceded by a highly rated 7” single featuring two tracks from the album, the disco boogie cut up ‘Ego Riot’ and the future jazz groove ‘Missing Link’.

    There's another Sidewinder out there as well (http://www.2badsheep.com); Crystal Prodigy is one of this guy's tracks. Possible to split these two into separate artist profiles?
