The Scoop : Pseudo Star is a lo-fi indie pop/rock experience. Drawing influences from The Beatles, The Who, to Sonic Youth and Pink Floyd, to Treble Charge and Alternative Rock, each member brings a different style of music into the band. The philosophy was always simple : To write original material in the style of the bands they loved. The band’s sounds range from soft mellow songs to loud and noisy spaced-out jams. Pseudo Star was formed in 1996, and has played several shows in the Chatham Kent area. Work began on an album that was to be titled “Sunday with the empty”. Recording was finished in 1998, but the band lost interest in the project, as they began to write new material, and in some cases, form other bands. Pseudo Star disband on a happy note in 2000, and were able to actually finish the album in 2003.
