The Dissociatives Biography

 
The Dissociatives

The Dissociatives was conceived by Daniel Johns and Paul Mac.

The pair first met when Paul remixed "Freak" by Daniel's band, Silverchair, in 1997. Over the years that followed, Paul contributed "keyboards and other noises" to Silverchair's "Neon Ballroom" and "Diorama" albums. He also guested onstage with the band a couple of times. Through these creative experiences the guys became friends. This led them to create an experimental EP called "I Cant Believe It's Not Rock" in 2000.

In mid 2003 the pair got together to write and record "The Dissociatives". They elected to produce the disc themselves. All the music was written jointly with Daniel subsequently penning the words and melodies. They recorded the basic tracks in London then a few months later they regrouped in Sydney and Newcastle to finish it off.

As of 2008 the band is on hiatus. They have said, however, that they will release more music in the future.
