"Breaks Co-op" is a New Zealand band, formed in 1997, first through music company FMR and more recently with EMI.

The band members are Andy Lovegrove, Zane Lowe, and Hamish Clark.

Lowe and Clark formed Breaks Co-Op in Auckland, releasing the electronic album Roofers in 1997 before they both left New Zealand to travel and pursue other interests. They ended up in the UK, where Lowe has become a hugely successful radio DJ and TV presenter.

After several years hiatus, Lowe and Clark eventually started working on new material in 2004, recruiting Andy Lovegrove from artist/producers The Away Team after hearing a vocal demo.

Released last year in New Zealand, "The Sound Inside" was a double-platinum selling hit, with lead single "The Otherside" the No.1 airplay hit of 2005 and winner of Song Of The Year at the NZ Music Awards.

The Co-op toured extensively and relocated to the UK, where their album was released by Parlophone.

The live lineup is Lovegrove on lead vocals and guitar; Rodney Fisher on vocals, lead guitar, mandolin and percussion; Rio Hemopo on bass and vocals; Tom Atkinson on drums; and Clark on turntables, samples, and vocals.

The song "The Otherside" is featured in the Season One "Brothers & Sisters" episode "Valentine's Day Massacre".
