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.
