Gridlock (band) Wikipedia
Gridlock is a San Francisco based experimental electronic band originally created by Mike Wells in 1994. A year later, Mike Cadoo joined up, and the duo released their first two demos, Sickness and Frozen, and soon signed to Pendragon Records in 1997.
Their style was originally akin to the sound of Skinny Puppy with less vocals and an ambient aspect not normally found in industrial at the time. Eventually, they took on more and more ambient and futuristic electronic sounds and slowly lessened their industrial edge whilst removing any trace of vocals.
On March 24, 2005, the band announced its dissolution on its website, but promised to continue making music under Wells' and Cadoo's respective side projects. Their last recorded material to be released was two tracks on the 2006 Hymen Records compilation Travel Sickness.Sickness (Demo) (1995)Frozen (Demo) (1996)The Synthetic Form Pendragon (1997)Enzyme EP (1998)Further Pendragon (1999)5.25 (Limited edition) Pendragon (2000)Trace Unit (2001)Formless Hymen (2003)Gridlock / O2 - 366115" UnitEngram 12" HymenGridlock / Steel split 12" KlangkriegGridlock / Panacea split 12" ComponentUnder 3" CD PieheadGridlock / Bloodlive.traces self-releasedTrace 12" ZodFormless 2x12" HymenThe Tyranny Off the Beat Vol. 4 CD (Off Beat 1997)Exoskeleton CD (Possessive Blindfold 1998)Binary Application Extension 05 CD (Culture Shock 1998)The Tyranny Off the Beat Vol. 5 CD (Off Beat 1998)Classix CD (Off Beat 1999)The Flatline Compilation 2 CD (Flatline 1999)Virion Sequences CD (Gashed 2000)Exoskeleton 3 CD (Possessive Blindfold 2001)Masonic CD (Hymen 2002)Sub.Session CD (Sub.Session 2002)Zod 07 12" (Zod 2002)Bitmapping CD (Objective/Subjective 2003)Hybrid Components CD (Component 2003)Travel Sickness CD (Hymen 2006)Cherised Agony on Evolution by Android LustLP1 on Corruption Time by NeutronicPayoff on Truthead by Aghast ViewUnforgiven on Unburied by Allied VisionAs Death Approaches on Inception of Eradication by Holocaust TheoryMy Saviour on Redemption EP by Flesh FieldIn Memorial on WWW by Individual TotemWraith on Moon_Phase by Displacer (band)One Man And His Anger on The Connected Series #4 by SteelJ.
