Swervedriver meets Husker Du by way of The Feelies.

Biography

Formed in 1999, just after guitarist/singer Steve Kennedy's stint on drums with Chris Streng (of Stratford 4) in the band Estuary, SCIFLYER enters what appears to be a growing shoegazer revival scene....recently dubbed Nu-Gaze by MAGNET Magazine. The band self-released two critcally acclaimed ep's in 2001 and 02 and were eventually picked up by indie label, Clairecords for the release of 2003's "Fair Weather Karma", which made it to #113 on the CMJ Top 200!

Combining the influences of the early 90's shoegazers, like Swervedriver, Ride, Loop, etc with Steve's earlier influences like Husker Du, The Feelies, Rain Parade, etc, SCIFLYER has shown themselves to be, as Magnet's Fred Mills put it, "no one-shoe pony".
