1987 – 1999 (12 years)
Perth, Western Australia, Australia
Kim Salmon & the Surrealists where formed in Perth by Kim Salmon in mid-1987, with Brian Hooper on bass and Tony Pola on drums. Salmon formed the band to record the album Hit Me With The Surreal Feel, using minimalist lo-fi approaches to recording a basic trio: recording the band live with microphones around the studio capturing the entire sound, rather than one instrument per track. The recording and mixing cost was AUD$240 total. The band also played live around Perth in mid-1987. The album was released in October 1988.
