With neither of their bands touring, or in the recording studio, New Zealand music scene veterans Martin Phillipps (guitar/vocals) of The Chills and David Kilgour (guitar/vocals) of The Clean,  bassist Noel Ward, keyboardist Alan Starrett and drummer Noel Ward joined forces to create perhaps the closest thing to a “super group” that New Zealand ever had, the one off group, Pop Art Toasters. 

Released in 1994 the group’s sole release, the self-titled Pop Art Toasters,

by The Dovers (USA) (“What Am I Going To Do”), The Avengers (NZ) (“Everyone’s Gonna Wonder”), The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band (USA) (“I Won’t Hurt You”), The Squires (USA) (“Go Ahead”) and The Who (UK) (“Circles”).
