About this artist...
Wellington-based psychedelic-progressive-rock six-piece, Spartacus R are more of a musical force than a band. Connoisseurs of fine instruments and life long friends, they have relentless energy for crafting new music; at times raw and wild, other times achingly beautiful, and always uncompromised to its core. Having refined their sound and gathered their beautiful gear for over six years now, Spartacus R have released two EPs, and two acclaimed albums (‘When the Fever Takes Hold’, 2009 and ‘The View’, 2011), and toured the country on several outlandish musical journeys.
Ryan Prebble – Vocals, Rhodes, Gat (‘Fly My Pretties’, ‘The Nudge’).
Shanti Costar – Vocals, Korg (‘Rhythm Hawks’, ‘Sons of Midas’).
