Defunct UK ambient/experimental duo (Jonathan Grieve & Stephen Meixner), which turned into a trio (adding Stephen J. Pomeroy) by the end of their career, formed in 1987. (Meixner went on to create music as SRMeixner.) Their initial musical ventures were of a more improvisational nature, based on noise and volume, but not to be confused with power electronics. Sounds emerged, sub-merged and re-emerged at varying frequencies with extreme tonality. The idea was physical confrontation through sound, and some of that early influence can be heard on their first LP "Seven Hands Seek Nine Fingers."
