Future Stupid

Future Stupid got started in mid 1993 in Christchurch. The original line-up was Tony Hallum (guitar, vocals), Mykel Cole (bass) and Dave Toland (drums). They moved to Auckland in early 1995 after the song 'Shovel' was playlisted by 95bFM.

The band released their debut six track self-titled CD EP in 1996 on the Felix Records label, an offshoot of Wildside Records. They recorded the EP at Ground Zero Studio, Newton, Auckland with Shane O'Neill engineering.
