Inchworm were one of Hamilton's more successful indie pop/rock bands in the mid to late nineties.
The band formed in 1993 when drummer Rob Talsma joined with Spatula Death's Justin Harris (guitar) and Scott Brodie (bass). The band shared vocal duties, although Justin tended to sing on more songs than the others.
The album "Shiny" was recorded between February 1995 and February 1996, and included re-recorded versions of some of the tracks on Looper. The band’s second album (and final release) was "You Are Only Here", released in 1997.
Inchworm were awarded NZ On Air funding for a music video (directed by Greg Page) and self-funded a couple of others. Their videos received TV airplay. The band played regularly in Hamilton
Scott and Rob currently play together in a band called Girlinky.
