"Steriogram" are a New Zealand punk/rock group that was formed in 1999.
Formed in 1999, Steriogram's first single release, "Soccerstar" was mediocre but upon the release of their second single, "White Trash" saw the group success soar. Like many bands, Steriogram toured New Zealand in a friend's van without any support crew, doing gigs where they could. In 2002, still unsigned, they joined several other New Zealand bands in the annual Boost Mobile School's Tour, playing for free during high school lunch hours to get exposure, as well as at bars at night.
In 2002, while recording at a rented beach house they were spotted by an American Label Scout for Capitol Records who had come upon their music video for "White Trash" on the internet and were signed to Capitol Records later that year.
2002 also saw the release of their debut album, Schmack! which has seen six singles released from it.
Two contributing factors to Steriogram's success are being they have done their national secondary school tour which in turned generated a wider fan base and allowed many people who hadn't heard of the group enjoy their unique sound. The second factor was their internet site...
