Forming in 1999, Black Cab is a Melbourne based drone and electronica group that are heavily influenced by 1970s psychedelic rock coupled with elements of Krautrock and more programmed driven beats and electronic soundscapes.
Since their inception before the turn of the century, the band have released two EPs and four full length albums, starting with 2004’s Altamont Diary, 2006’s Jesus East, 2009’s Call Signs and 2014’s Games of the XXI (21st) Olympiad, with much of their material drawing upon historical events such the ill-fated Altamont Speedway free concert hosted by the Rolling Stones and doping use by East German athletes at the 1976 Olympic Games.
