The seeds of Augustino were sown in early 1999 with the pairing up of vocalist / songwriter Sean Clarke and guitarist / keyboardist Joel Halstead.
Joel, something of an international troubadour with a fondness for cowboy hats, lays into his black Gibson like he's breaking in a frisky Palomino - he takes care of the guitar swagger department and most of the keyboards. On the other side of the stage you'll see a rather frail-looking, willowy guy coaxing the most brilliantly ugly / beautiful shards of music out of his guitar.
That's the classically-trained Gareth Price, and how he got to be playing guitar in a band this loud - we can only speculate and be thankful for. Gluing the whole thing together is drummer Wade Shotter and bassist Nick Buckton.
