About Drop City

Drop City formed in Sydney, Australia at the beginning of 1993. Later that year they recorded their first album A Revolution Of Purely Private Expectations which was released on the Red Eye label through Polydor in 1994. That year saw them tour extensively throughout Australia to critical acclaim for both the album and their live shows. The Chiaroscuro EP followed in late 1994 including a crackerjack cover of Spacemen 3s Losing Touch With My Mind. In September 1994, lead singer/songwriter Matthew J Tow recorded a solo album Youre Only As Good As Your Sound under the moniker of Colorsound which was picked up by Summershine Records in Australia. The following year it was released in the US on Sub Pop. A Drop City 7 single Hard To Smile was also released on Sub Pop that same year. In 1995 Drop City flew to London to record their second album Magic Transistor Radio with legendary producer Andy Wilkinson (Stereolab, Boo Radleys, My Bloody Valentine). This was followed by a tour of Canada where A Revolution... and Chiaroscuro were released on Canadian label Shake Records. The band toured through the US with highlights being New York and San Francisco. Magic Transistor Radio was released in Australia at the end of 1995 on Red Eye/Polydor. That year also saw Drop City play The Big Day Out festival and support the Stone Roses in Sydney. 1996 opened with Drop City recording the single Fools Rush In with producer Nick Launay (Midnight Oil, The Posies, PIL). This track was later included on their third album This Heavenly Machine which was recorded in October 1996. It was also around this time that Drop City toured Australia with The Hoodoo Gurus and The Posies on the Gurus farewell tour. In January 1997 Drop City again toured Australia with the Big Day Out and countless headline shows around the country. Towards the end of 1997 Drop City again travelled to the US where they played shows in New York and Los Angeles. It was in LA that they hooked up with the folks at No-Fi Records and the Brian Jonestown Massacre to record a split 7 single with renaissance man Dr Anton Newcombe at the controls. The recording exists, but the single never eventuated. (Matthew Tow later went on to tour and record with the BJM) On their return to Australia at the beginning of 1998 they supported Stereolab and toured with Yo La Tengo in Sydney and Melbourne, Liam Hayes from Plush opening with a solo set. In 1998 M J Tows second Colorsound was completed and released in the UK on Spaceage Recordings (home of Spacemen 3, EAR & Spectrum). Late 1998 saw the release of the Secret Riots EP on their own label Rayman Recordings through MDS. The year ended with a Luna support and a cracking NYE show with Underground Lovers in Sydney. 1999 started with a Manic Street Preachers support and pre-production for the new album. Later in the year Drop City went to the UK in support of Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow, a compilation of Drop City tracks new and old, released in Europe through 3rd Stone Records. Drop Citys fourth studio album The New Situation was released on 13 June 2000 through Rayman Recordings/Shock. The band broke up in 2000. Today various members can be found playing The Lovetones.
