When three members of Nitidus get together to form a new project, you know it has to be something special. The original Australian line-up of Ash Fyfe, Kristian “Doc” Grondman and Marki Miklic have teamed up with our good friend Suzy Ferguson (Exile, Lustre) to create Arabela, a new venture into rock, metal and prog.
The band has bunkered themselves into Ash’s studio creating the foundations of their debut album, but they have released some demos of the work completed so far. Check ’em out, and look for Arabela on a stage near you!
Calling all New Zealanders, if you haven’t seen Shadow Puppet in action, you’re missing the best cover band to come out of Christchurch. The band features Nitidus’ very own Patrick Clemenger on vocals, plus his brother Luke Clemenger from Powershred on bass and ex-Nitidus drummer Tom Brownlee.
Adam and Doc would like to introduce you to The Romeo Knights, their new alternative rock trio with former Immersion bass player Ben Howland. Building on the Nitidus heritage, the group have been busily performing at nearly every venue in Melbourne.
Hey to all the Nitidus clan out there. Finally crawled out from underneath my rock i have been hiding under for the last 15 months. In a covers band in NZ now doing shows a couple of times a week. If you wanna check it out, its www.myspace.com/shadowpuppetnz And yes we are called shadow puppet. Will be back in Australia in about a month’s time and Nitidus MAY be doing a gig over that time…Thats about all i have at the moment Miss Nitidus terribly but circumstances changed Nitidus is NOT finished. As Marki, Doc and Ads have indicated, JUST ON HIATUS. Stay tuned…
After performing several shows as a three piece (including an incredible show with the Hoodoo Gurus) and writing some exciting new songs, it became clear that the Nitidus name was no longer relevant to the band we have become. It has been a long and gruelling struggle to find a new name, but we finally picked Shotgun Zero and are now moving ahead to create more new sounds.

Spread the word, Shotgun Zero is here and ready to rock your world!
This is what they call a ‘tease’. 🙂
