Andy Kent (born Andrew Charles Kent in Wellington, New Zealand) joined You Am I in late 1991 at the age of twenty-two, replacing Nick Tischler, and joining Tim Rogers with new drummer Mark Tunaley (who replaced Rogers' brother Jaimme). Kent was the band's live sound engineer prior to being asked to join the band at a performance in Canberra. Kent's first recorded appearance with the band was on their Goddamn (EP) in 1992. Tuanaley later left the band after the release of their first album, Sound As Ever, and was replaced by Rusty Hopkinson.
During the band commentary on The Cream and the Crock DVD, Tim and Andy mention that Kent was originally going to be the guitarist in You Am I, because of his level of proficiency. Ultimately he became the bass player.
