ABOUT

I have written for & played in several rock, jazz & genre-non-specific bands over years. I am now looking for musicians or vocalist(s) of any age or background who want to make good original music. I actually live in Glastonbury but the Bandmix site wouldn't let me enter that for some reason. I am not really interested in the covers/tribute/blues scene but have an idea to put together a band making some music that is accessible, tuneful and interesting that could play anywhere. Always keen on true collaboration with other players as that is where the fun is.

Influences

Difficult to give definitive list as have been influenced by many many bands and musicians. From 60s Psychedelia & 70s Krautrock (Neu, Can, etc). Lots of mainstream rock & pop. The quirkier end of the puck rock spectrum. Bulgarian music (Ivo Papasov, Trio Bulgarka). More recently bands like, Blowzabella, Gorky's Zygotic Mynci, Lemon Jelly, Go Team. Have recently been listening to Mark T & the Brickbats obscure band from south west who were pioneers in drawing on World Music influences back in the 80s. Alway interested in improvised music - that doesn't have to mean usual jazz but but just be music in any genre that you make up as you go along.

EQUIPMENT

A whole bunch of guitars acoustic & electric, a big pile of accordions including a splendid early electric one, some primitive electronica (synth & Roland drum machine) and a Turkish saz that I have yet to learn how to play but which looks great.
