Basking Sharks were a three-piece band from Lancaster UK, formed in 1980 and active until around 1987. They produced purely electronic music using mostly homemade or customised second-hand synthesisers and drum machines. The group often played live, using primitive video effects to augment their on-stage performances, sometimes to bizarre effect. Basking Sharks issued one EP, one album and one single all on independent labels.
