The Band Experiments
The Band Experiments was a band competition similar to the Battle of the Bands, organised and supported by Click Sound. Inaugural winners in 2000 were the Dead Pan Rangers. In its innaugural year, several bands changed their names for the Band Experiments to avoid being removed from the playlist of UFM, who at that time ran the annual Battle of the Bands. The last original Band Experiments competition was held in 2002, but was revived by Mammoth in 2008 at Flow, with Sora Shima winning the competition.
