Looper was formed in 1998 by Belle and Sebastian bassist Stuart David and his wife Karn, Scott joined a year later on samples and keyboards. Stuart's brother Ronnie also joined on guitar. The live shows were multimedia events with Karn projecting her video work. After two albums, Up a Tree (1999) and The Geometrid (2000), followed by a three month tour of the U.S with The Flaming Lips they signed to Mute Records and released The Snare. Scott left the band in 2002 to concentrate on other musical ventures but he has collaborated with Stuart on several projects since. Stuart continues to write under the Looper name. In 2014 Looper licensed the complete back catalogue to Mute who released the box set These Things in April 2015. It contains everything the band ever recorded plus a new record Offgrid:Offline. In August 2018 Stuart and Scott performed for the first time in 16 years at The Tron Theatre in Glasgow. They performed piano versions of their electronic compositions and covered John Cage's seminal 4'33.
