Biography
Tycho Brahe produces original modern electronic pop music that harks back to the '80s glory days of synthpop luminaries such as New Order, Depeche Mode, Human League, and Giorgio Moroder. Based in subtropical Brisbane, Australia, the band takes its name from a pivotal but flawed 16th century self taught Danish astronomer, as testimony to the band's self taught "do it yourself" ethic. The band was founded by Ken Evans (vocals, programming, guitar) in 1993. Georgina Emery (vocals, keyboards) began taking a visible role in the band from 1995 onwards, having been involved prior to that as a behind the scenes cowriter. Revolving around these two core members, the band has an exceptionally stable history, both as a recording project, and as a live act. Ken began establishing Tycho Brahe's own dedicated recording studio in 1997, a relatively cutting edge move back then, utilizing his collection of vintage analogue synthesizers such as the Minimoog and Roland TB-303 and vintage drum machines like the Linndrum and Roland TR-606, alongside new computer based digital recording systems. Over the years Tycho Brahe has become an established live band, touring within Australia and sharing the stage with other prominent acts such as Real Life, VNV Nation, Pseudo Echo and Ikon. Live performances have become an important aspect of the band, not only to maintain the interest of the local fanbase, but as a means to refining new songs for eventual recording. The current live band, apart from Ken and Georgina, features Andy Walls, a skilled keyboardist who performs all of the bass parts live on synth, and Francis Tohill, a precision drummer who uses a full electronic drumkit to recreate the machine sounds of Tycho Brahe's electronic beats onstage. This almost traditional, but electronic, rhythm section of the band gives the live act a certain energy, and allows a degree of flexibility in live performances not seen with many typical electronic acts. Tycho Brahe have released several CDs including the albums Cassiopeia, Tasty, and Atlantic, the singles Avarice and Don't Feel That Way, and have remixed other acts including Real Life and Empire State Human.
