Rhomboid

Bio

A psychedelic funk band formed from magical concepts by the Wizard Ari Freeman, trained by the Wizard of New Zealand.

Starting with "Coagula”, an alchemical guitar crafted from floor boards left over from a renovation from his house, Ari decided to put the spells he had been working on for many years to the test.

Finding a likely musical soul in Oscar Green, a drummer beyond his years, they began weaving songs.

Having learned the power of funk to move people’s bodies, Ari began to search for other elements to reach their minds and souls. He found it in the seemingly accidental collision of 60’s psychedelic pop textures and the angular harmonies of 90’s alternative rock.

Sculpting an holistic sound to affect mind body and soul, they required a bass player to lay down the fundamental lore.

They decided to ask the best bass player they had ever met. A certain Mike ‘Fud’ Fudakowski, previously of the seminal Christchurch progressive metal band Cripple Mr Onion, who had been Ari’s teacher in his youth.

Fud showed himself able to often literally play Ari’s compositions with one hand tied behind his back, and so had another hand ready to hold down chords and harmonies allowing Ari’s lead guitar to soar, meander and render many chords previously unattempted by guitarists to date. This was possible due to Fud’s 10 string bass Namazu, an instrument he has designed himself, which has nearly the range of a grand piano.

Band Members:
Ari Freeman (guitar, vocals)
Fud (10 string bass)
