There are at least three music acts known as Sprinkler;Read More...
1. USA group Sprinkler.
Chris Slusarenko (guitar/vox)
Nate Slusarenko (drums)
Steven Birch (guitar)
Eric Moore aka Emrick Swaine (bass)
The band formed in 1992 after the demise of the Slusarenko brother's previous band, Death Midget. Birch had been playing guitar with Oblivion Seekers, and Moore had previously fronted Rawhead Rex. In June of that year, their debut album More Boy, Less Friend was released on Sub Pop Records. The following year, they released the Peerless ep. The band did, however, not stay together very long, and by 1994 they had split up.
In September of 2005, they briefly reformed for a one-time reunion at MusicFest NW, playing a standing-room only show with Crackerbash, Pond and Hazel.
Birch toured with better-known post-grunge band Everclear from 1997-98, and then formed Audio Learning Center with former Pond bassist Chris Brady. ALC amicably disbanded in 2004. In 2007, he played bass and guitar on Portland band Telephone's debut album "Automatic."
2. UK pop duo Sprinkler are 27 year old New York raised Lucas and 25 year old North Londoner Chardel. Influenced by Arrested Development, Soul II Soul, De La Soul and Loose Ends, they released three singles in the UK on Island Records during 1998 - 'Leave 'Em Something To Desire', 'Tinted Eyes' and 'I Like You Just The Way I Am'. Their debut album was shelved after the singles failed to make much of a commercial impact. A 5 track album sampler reveals a very promising fusion of sounds, such as r'n'b, hip hop, drum 'n' bass and pop, which will sadly never be appreciated outside of their modest fan base.
