Love Like… Electrocution began in January 2002 with founding members Garth (guitar) and Dave (guitar). After three months of lazy bedroom song writing, Jarrod Brown (drums) was recruited, but lasted only a handful of practices before it was decided that it wasn’t meant to be and invited Slackjaw’s drummer Rowan Tedge to join the ranks. At this time they were rehearsing with Jay, their first bassist who also only lasted two or three weeks and was happily replaced by their good friend Jordan Perryman. Tom, who expressed interest in vocals, was in Russia and was scheduled to return within days and Brett (vocals) was kicking around town awaiting action.
They finally came together about two weeks before their first scheduled appearance in April,a party held in Garth’s lounge room in Sommerton Park, Adelaide. Jordan (bass) was leaving to persue a Teaching career in Japan the day after the party so they decided, for the benefit of their future, to replace him with new found friend Timmy Sullivan
Garth, Dave, Brett, Tom, Rowan and Timmy practiced for a week before the first show and apart from going through four guitars, a microphone and a light fitting, it went great. They had another gig a few weeks later, then decided to record their first EP, “She was Red Hot”. They traveled to Melbourne for a weekend in early August 2002, returned and played around Adelaide for a few months before Tom (vocals) decided to leave the band and concentrate on his other band, St Alban’s Kids, situated in Melbourne.
