“Music has been and continues to be a powerful and pivotal element of my being. I have been a regular gig goer for fifty years and a performer for forty, I’ve fronted bands and been involved in projects along with members of Joy Division, The Smiths, The Fall, Public image ltd and Captain Beefheart’s Magic Band and many others.
I currently sing in the band Four Candles and have also recently collaborated with Simon Ding Archer on a forthcoming release under the banner “Unseasonal Beasts”. The album ‘A Northern Powerhouse’ is imminent and features guest appearances from members of a newer wave of Manchester musicians such as Lines and Cabbage.
Parallel to my performing I co-run the German Shepherd record label.”
