About Even as We Speak
Even as We Speak is an indie band from Sydney, Australia - formed in 1986. The line up changed over the years, with founding members Matthew Love (guitar, banjo, vocals), Mary Wyer (vocals, guitar) and Rob Irwin (bass) joined later by Anita Raynor (drums, mandolin), Paul Clarke (guitar, vocals) and Julian Knowles (keyboards, production, guitar).

The music can be described as intelligent pop with an experimental/art influence and bitingly poetic lyrics.

After a series of vinyl releases on Australian independent labels and success on the Australian independent music scene, they released several singles and an album on the UK indie label Sarah Records, three of which reached the Top 5 of the Melody Maker and New Musical Express independent music charts in 1992 and 1993. The single 'Falling Down the Stairs' received wide airplay in the UK on BBC Radio 1 in 1993, but major commercial success eluded the band.

Between 1992-3 the group recorded three sessions for John Peel and one session for Mark Goodier for BBC Radio 1. They were among the few Australian bands to record Peel Sessions.
