Andrew Spittle Profile

aka Das Phaedrus, Dating Godot, All Red Cables
Victor Billot
20 Jul 2015

One of the most prolific independent New Zealand artists of his generation, Andrew Spittle has recorded and released over 30 albums of original music, ranging from melodic punk rock and electronica to acoustic ballads.

A multi-instrumentalist, Spittle’s elusive nature, lack of involvement in any scene, and compulsive output make him a true musical outsider.
