GO Live! is a new weekly video series which aims to showcase both new and established musicians in Christchurch.

Playing their riff-heavy song Suffocate, this week's band is four-piece Skelter, comprising vocalist/guitarist Eddie Kiesanowski, Zeke Mitchell on lead guitar, bassist Robert Daglish and drummer James Rance.

Under the name Near Veddar, the band were finalists in the RDU RounDUp band competition in May.

Skelter formed a year ago after meeting through the Christchurch Jazz School. The band's style is far from jazz though.
