I've been a bassist in a number of tech/melodic hardcore/death metal and grindcore bands for years. Can't be bothered with inflated egos or those thinking that playing music is a valid career choice. Doing this simply because I love doing it as a hobby and not for money, glory or fame so don't get in touch if you have dreams of world stardom, I only want to hear from you if you want to make music you'd want to listen to and maybe set a venue on fire with a moshpit here and there.

I also have live and studio session experience for other bands under my belt, usually having to learn songs (or entire sets) within a short space of time, something I seem to be uncannily good at as I can pick tunes up pretty quickly. These have included:
The February Solution (live work)
Madman Is Absolute (live work)
Collapse (studio work, a metal project formed by a guy who played for David Sneddon)

PS. The "Chimp Spanner" upload is a remix I did for a competition (didn't win) and not an example of a band I was in.

Pretty much everything I hear influences me in some way, be it the slowest of doom to the hyperspeed of grindcore, or the twee-est of acoustic guitar or soft electronica to the nastiest harsh sounds imaginable. I tend to listen more to abrasive noisy stuff but I like to temper it with a bit of Enya or Boards Of Canada here and there.
However, since I discovered Cardiacs in June 2019 (I know, VERY late into that game) I have been pretty much obsessed with them and have listened to them every day since. They truly are a life-changing band. If anyone wants a "Jim" for a Cardiacs-inspired band, I'll be right there!

CHIMP SPANNER - Supererogation (Locked Hinge Remix)
CHIMP SPANNER - Supererogation (Locked Hinge Remix)My remix for Chimp Spanner's "Supererogation", stripped to bits and glued back together again the wrong way. I'm especially proud of getting 3 separate guitar solos that weren't originally played alongside each other to all intermingle without any hiccups even after changing their time signatures to 4/4.
