I've been a musician for most of my life, getting into electronic music and sampling when I got together with DJ Dick to form Rockers Hi Fi in 1992. More recently I've combined this with live guitar and recording other instruments, going for an authentic rootsy sound. This has dovetailed nicely with a huge interest in African music, especially funk, highlife and of course afro beat from West Africa in the 1970s. My last album "13 Faces of Lightning Head" was very much in this vein, as well having the usual dub flavours. Right now I'm working on brand new material, with influences ranging from prog rock to hairy funk to orchestral stuff to Bollywood to instrumental hip hop.
