Starpoint Electric was an American alternative rock band from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Formed in the fall of 1997, the band consisted of Ted Boyer (guitar/vocals), Clay Boyer (bass/vocals), Steve Galloway (guitar), and Cameron Weeks (drums). Weeks later founded a new band, the Buttons, with Rafi Goldberg of Grasshopper Highway and David Alston of Sticky.[1] Their only full-length album, Bad Directions, was released in 1999 by Plastique Recording Company.[2] It was recorded and mixed with John Morand, who is known for his work with Cracker and Sparklehorse.[3] Prior to the release of Bad Directions, they had released a 7" single and a split EP, and toured with the Archers of Loaf.[2][4] Kati Schardl described the album as "replete with dark pop beauty."[5]
