Startripper are a loops/guitar psychedelic 2 piece from Chester, UK.
The duo, both originally from the same Cheshire village but a generation apart, met through Dan’s love of Vince’s other band Red Elektra ’69 and started experimenting with loops and samples from the likes of Chemical Brothers, The Beatles & The Spencer Davis Group, with Vince throwing lead over the top and Dan adding noise and fx.
This lead them to playing a number of live improv gigs around Chester and also the remixes appearing on Soundcloud.
As the rehearsals went on and the duo were finding their sound, Dan started building his own samples and work started on their original material.
Over the last 18 months Startripper have released two EP’s and Dan has released a side-project with Chester musician David Watson entitled ‘Startripper & The Blue Boy’ all through Schott’s List Music, with all the back catalogue available to stream at the end of September 2019.
