Profile image for Pluto


Pluto's eclectic first album Redlight Syndrome showcased the guitars and paired vocals of Tim Arnold and onetime child actor Milan Borich. Record company conflicts helped delay rockier follow-up Pipeline under the Ocean until 2005; but the results sold far better, and 'Long White Cross' won single of the year at the 2006 NZ Music Awards. A fourth Pluto album never eventuated, after the band effectively split in two: the Borich and Arnold-led Debbie and the Downers, and Nightchoir, with vocals by former Pluto/Brunettes bassist Mike Hall.
