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.
