Rock/grunge (mainly covers)

Canterbury, Kent


Band membersEdit

Classic line up:

  • Ben Gardener (vocals)
  • Sam Gardener (guitar)
  • Dan Johnson (bass)
  • Danny Jones (drums)
  • Jonny Ray (guitar, vocals)


  • Luke ?? (bass) replaced Dan summer 1997
  • John Biss ? (guitar?) for one gig


Pattern Crysis were formed by brothers Ben and Sam Gardener and played a mixture of classic rock, metal, punk  and grunge. They wrote a number of original songs, but played only covers live. The band split before getting a chance to record a demo in 1997; unable to find a replacement for Danny Jones and having spent all their money on drink (and other things).

Dan Johnson went on to play in a number of moderately successful local bands (see below). Sam and Jonny Ray played a few acoustic gigs as a duo, and Jonny went on to perform as a solo artist in Kent and London.

The band has never reformed. There’s still time…
