ABOUT

I'm a keen amateur older musician looking to play and compose/produce with other/s. My music 'education' has been got by playing drums/percussion in bands and samba collectives. I've had a year's worth of piano tuition and piano is my main instrument now. I 'came of age' in the late 70s/early 80s with Punk and post-Punk.

Influences

For overall approach and philosophy of music making it has to be Brian Eno. Really very wide. I've never been stuck with a genre or scene.
A few names to drop: Miles Davis (bop/rock/space jazz) - James Brown - Ricardo Villalobos - Squarepusher - early PiL - Bowie, Queen - 10cc (I do like melody and only because 'I'm Mandy Fly Me' is my head now) ... and more ....
