The Crystal Set was a indie rock band from Sydney, Australia formed in the early 1980s featuring Russell Kilbey (bass and lead vocals), Phillip Maher (guitar & vocals), Davey Ray Moor (keyboards & vocals) and Tim Seckhold (drums). The band released their first single, "A Drop In The Ocean", independently. They were signed to Red Eye Records owned by John Foy and the first single was reissued through Red Eye. Their next two singles, "Wholly Holy" and "Benefit Of The Doubt", were moderate indie hits on the small but enthusiastic east coast Australian scene. With the departure of Davey Ray Moor, Craig Hooper (formerly of The Reels) stepped in and the band released "Cluster".

One side of the Red Eye-released EP featured songs recorded with Moor while the other side featured compositions with Hooper. Upon Hooper's departure, Russell Kilbey then took up duties on guitar and vocals and Luke Blackburn, a Melbourne musician, joined as bassist and vocalist. Red Eye Records signed a distribution deal with Polydor Australia in 1990. The Crystal Set released their next album Almost Pure under this label and had moderate success with the singles, "Thrive" and "She Spits Out Stars" in 1991. Their Red Eye/Polydor labelmates were The Cruel Sea, The Clouds, Steve Kilbey (Russell's brother and lead singer and bassist from successful Australian band The Church), Jack Frost aka Steve Kilbey and Grant McLennan (of The Go-Betweens), The Bhagavad Guitars, Curious (Yellow) and The Beasts of Bourbon. The Crystal Set disbanded at the end of 1991.

Russell Kilbey went on to collaborate with David Thrussell from techno-industrial outfit Snog in a band called Sex Industrie, doing a cover version of the classic AC/DC song Jailbreak. There is also a 1960s band who released tracks 'She's On My Mind' and 'Peaceful Times' (1965-1967). Read more on Last.fm.
