I stole this writeup from last.fm :
Effigy were an Australian three piece rock/synth band originally consisting of Peter Hardman, Jason Stacy and Annie Beckerling; bassist Beckerling quit the band during the early stages of recording second album “Century Collapsing”, and was replaced by Cobina Crawford. Originally from Perth WA, Hardman, the bands founder relocated the band to Victoria where they joined the Melbourne Rock scene. Of the two albums in total the band produced, they had limited success with “Century Collapsing” thanks to singles “Suspicion Bells” and “Caught”. Though Effigy effectively disbanded after that album, Hardman eventually formed a new four-piece, all-male band under the Effigy name. They have yet to release anything on CD.
I really liked the song ‘Lovers’. Quite enjoyed seeing them play live too and I always thought Jason Stacy was a great drummer. I seem to remember there being some tension between Hardman and Annie Beckerling. If the lyrics to ‘Lovers’ are anything to go by its pretty obviously why she left the band.
This is the cd single for Lovers.
And here is their 1997 self titled LP ‘Effigy’.
This is their 1998 LP ‘Century Collapsing‘.
