On my show this month:
I left recording this show, for unforeseen circumstances, 'til the very last day before I reached my extended deadline. I felt like a student again who just couldn't get into that latest homework ... except this is enjoyable ... So, what's occurring?
Pet Crow are back with a new tune off their forthcoming album and, rather amazingly, after so long in the wilderness, Cy Kosis has made a breakbeat tune and it's a goodun. The main man from Grawlix has a new project called ((M A R I A)) and it's rather marvellous. There is a new genre to me called Phonk and we are hearing N64KIDDO providing us with that flavour.
Steven James Adams has a new project that I'm playing, he's teamed up with an old Broken Family Band mate, Timothy Victor and they have called it Portland Brothers. My old mate Jimmy Davis is going under the name T8pes now and I have something from him.
I also have two features, one is from an EP the marvellous Thomas Blatchford has already played a track off, it's by Dry Cleaning and I'm a big fan of it. The second is an album by Girls In Synthesis and was released a few months ago but I've only just come across it and I think it's flippin' good!

Biography:
I got into DJ-ing after I became disillusioned with my previous job. It involved doing tests on monkeys and I resigned after Chong failed his GCSE woodwork re-sit. Well….maybe not….

Music has been a big part of my life since I was a littlun. As a teenager I was kinda blinkered in my tastes, liking what I wanted to like. If you’ve heard MJ Hibbert’s song “The Lesson Of The Smiths”, yep, that was me….just a little bit.

A bit older and wiser I slowly started to learn “The Lesson” and then…..I became ill….and d’ya know what, one of the symptoms of my illness was acutely hypersensitive ears….bugger, no music….it didn’t last just a few weeks neither. Recovering, I had a lot of time on my hands and started to listen to John Peel, something I’d done in the past but this time, it was SERIOUS. I never missed a second. John broadened my musical taste in a way no one else could have. He fuelled my passion for music, which had already significantly increased after been starved of music due to my illness. He fuelled it more and more and more with every show.

Since John’s death I seem to have increased the amount of music I listen to, further. It just seemed logical to do something with all the music I was buying so I purchased a (very!) cheap CDJ machine. This lead to me starting Rhubarb Radio on Live 365 in May 2007. I play a selection from genres like: Dubstep, Indie/Alternative, Hip Hop, Grime, Techno, Electronica, Punk, World Music, Desi Beats, Dancehall, Reggae, Drum & Bass and anything else that sounds interesting/different/entertaining/surprising and just downright good!!

Shortly after beginning Rhubarb Radio I sent a demo show to Dandelion Radio and here I am, typing my mini-biography as a Dandelion Radio DJ.

Thank you Dandelion

Other interests? Well, I dabbled in stand-up comedy in my final year of university. I did about ten gigs but stopped to join a dodgy indie band, the third of three bands I have been in. We scaled the heights of No.22 in the Melody Maker Indie Charts before splitting up in real rock ‘n’ roll fashion…..sitting having coffee in an Art House cinema’s cafe!
