One for the “Oh, I didn’t know that” box I’ve just learned of. Driveaway was rolling round my head earlier today, and I had a look to find out what happened to Sunsonic. Once existing as the Flowerpot Men, the band renamed themselves to Sunsonic and released a few singles and an album, however they were ultimately unsuccessful and split. The bit I didn’t know is that Ben went on to become a member of Juno Reactor, a band that probably can coast along on their royalties from the soundtrack to the Matrix Reloaded, in particular for the Burly Brawl scene. As you can probably surmise from the usual list of suspects named as remixers and collaborators, they were quite popular around these parts.
