Spanner are Jonathan Crayford on electric bass and Ross Burge on drums – a rhythm section that has mutinied from the band. The pair form a dynamically interactive punk jazz grungy hard belting-it-out free form indie type vibe music engine.

Spanner will be performing a residency at Golden Dawn, Auckland, NZ every Wednesday in May (3/10/17/24/31) - featuring special guests Neil Watson, Lucien Johnson, Julia Deans, Jeff Henderson and others...
