Matt Wand, Andrew Sharpley, Daniel Weaver
Profile:
No other artist's name makes quite as much sense as Stock, Hausen & Walkman (1991-2001) - a triple pun embracing pioneering electronic composer and theorist Karlheinz Stockhausen, the '80s pop-by-numbers production team Stock, Aitken & Waterman.

At the time of the group's formation in the late '80s, they were an experimental/improv quartet consisting of Sharpley and Wand plus cellist Dan Weaver and guitarist Rex Casswell. They played at Derek Bailey's request in 1990, but began to fracture when Casswell left and Weaver began taking recording time-outs to perform for dance and theatre as well. The trio formed their own Hot Air Records and began releasing a wide range of albums.

Stock, Hausen & Walkman (now Matt Wand, Andrew Sharpley and Daniel Weaver) is known for making sample-heavy, subversively funny collages with a healthy disregard for copyright issues: "taking pot shots at anything that moves, be it high art music, low pop or cheesy listening" (The Wire 163). Distinctive packaging has been prevalent in most SHW's releases.

The duo's music (Daniel Weaver leave them before the "Ventilating Deer" CD-ROM came out) has a hands-on, DIY approach, consisting of obscure samples and messed up beats, collaged into short, quirky songs. Wand and Sharpley continued on with an album-per-year release schedule until their split in 2001.
