from Philip K. Dick's 1968 novel "Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep ?", which

named Dr. Ruth (a close friend of Dr. Avalanche... *s*), the core line-up consisting of
Paul Sadler (Guitars & Vocals) and Deborah Denton (Keyboards, Programming &
Additional Vocals) who were joined by David Block (Bass) in 1993, while
the band still was trying to establish
a name in their native place, Sydney.
