Shall I write a book-hard to define one's self in a few words.Music & Art started early for me,being the son of a 'Hippy' mother & a 'Teddy Boy' stepfather...although interest in what they listened to faded at around the age of 6,as I bought my first album from a 2nd hand shop for '2d'-old money was still accepted!-T Rex,'Ride a white swan',by the age of 7 (trying to be quiet under the bedclothes with an old radio,listening to the Stooges,Velvet Underground,Captain Beefheart etc on the 'pirate' stations at the time.Still a kid when Punk hit-rapidly consumed in it though,progressing quickly into the more 'underground' artists-ATV,T.G.,S.P.K,Cabs & other hitherto artists falling more into the 'Protopunk' category than anything...Taking to the stage in 1979 as a rather 'dubious' anti-school band 'The Obnoxious Cretins'-Bass guitar & vocals,a 'popular' kid amongst my fellow ne'er do wells,for my outstanding mis-behaviour in the eyes of the authorities,expelled from both schools attended-accepted for University on merit of ability-joined the railways instead & became a train driver-this all took place in 'Bonnie Scotland's West Highlands-Music & Art was always the main theme behind whatever else was happening-Born in the fair city of Nottingham,moved to Scotland at the age of 9,upbringing was Scotland + every chance/holiday,back to Nottingham-left Scotland 1985,with the inclination to 'be as a seed in the wind' & see if I could eventually manage to live once again in my birth city-managed this Dec 21/2012-after circumnavigating the whole of Britain,becoming well known-particularly in London for my S.K.U.M>> (AGONY FOR PLEASURE) solo & friends work-including esoteric art-which featured on many a 'wannabe's' T-shirt,without them having a clue what the designs meant-Oh yeh,amongst others,the rather notorious,but now long forgotten 'Fist Fuckers Anonymous'-mad as hell we were,an English Scotsman/True Scotsman & an ex Psychiatric nurse creating havoc around the country.Mved to live in a small forest in Cornwall with my girlfriend at the time,after becoming disillusioned with London when the squatting laws changed,moving around that area until settling for a while & meeting my son's mother in Exmouth-moved to the 'despicable it turned out for me' town of Loughborough,Jan 1st 2000,returned to music after a 15 year break-couple of years ago-called myself 'Tears of Ochre' 1st-the solo project now is called ~UNUNE~,Also working now with many others,through the net-in particular,my dear friend G.M.Slater,as 'The Elderbranch Campaign-there we have the rather long short story version of 'the tip of the Iceberg'...................................................................................
Isn't gigging fun?!?! I've been in so many similar situations... in the mid-80's used to play this bar that had the world's smallest stage and it was when I played synths instead of bass - so I had to set up on the floor (and it was a tall stage! my head was at everyone else's knees.) So funny.
