Low Profile's main claim to fame is their quirky 1984 single 'Elephunk in my Soup'. The band was formed as a studio partnership by Phil Bowering and Steve Garden in 1982 (taking their name from the idea of being "low profile urban guerrillas"). Their debut album, 'Quiet Stress', followed in 1983; and there was a second long player, 'Elephunkin'', in 1987. Attempts to get overseas interest, following the success of 'Elephunk', were fruitless - and Bowering moved to London in 1990. He has since returned to New Zealand and is based in New Plymouth.
