Team9 formed in the Australian summer of 1997 as a five piece rock band then slowly devolved into a one man and his computer band. They made two albums which were critically acclaimed but sunk without trace.
In 2003 team9 started making bootlegs, putting them online and sending them out to like minded radio DJs. James Hyman and Eddy Temple Morris soon picked up on some tracks for their XFM remix show and Blender magazine featured a review for the Britney vs Pixies track.
Throughout 2005 team9 featured on Live 105 and Indie 103 in the US, Qui FM and NRJ in France, UKs Radio 1 and the Remix and Rinse shows on XFM. They have been featured in magazines such as Blender, Spin, NME, Zoo and GQ. As is common with mashup artists, questions of legality surround team9, however, they were given the unofficial ok for a Beck bootleg by having the track featured on the Beck website.
2005 finished with team9 collaborating on a Greenday mash up album 'American Edit by Dean Gray', with San Fransisco's Party Ben, resulting in coverage from MTV, NME and NBC and a protest day dubbed 'Dean Gray Tuesday'. A new half hour mix set for XFM's Superchunk aired in London, Manchester and Scotland in June 2006, with Eddy Temple Morris labelling it one of the most joyously entertaining Superchunk's to have graced his show. Big words.
