Fell in love with dance music tripping the light fantastic at the Embassy Club in the 70s. Collected a vast roomful of dub disco and soul tunes that suddenly came into their own in the mid 80s when the first raves exploded into our consciousness.
Luckily managed to score a great party flat in Ifield Rd Chelsea and occasionally had a few mates over for a dance (if you were there you know what I'm talking about). When Doves and Rhubarb & Custard got thrown into the mix realized in a rare moment of clarity that a larger venue might be needed. Started hosting GIVE! at The Fortress in Kings Cross and Woy-Oy on the MV Cam Leopard at Chelsea Bridge in the late 80s, Kimberley in the early 90s and House of Honey in the Naughties.
Played at tons of great places including: HoH - Give!, Woy-Oy, Kimberley, Harvest, Thunderpussy, Desert Heart; Womad, Glastonbury, Bestival, Sunrise, The Whitehouse, Ravenous, Paramount, Koshka, Fly, Aura, Sunset Ashram (Ibiza), Tender, Lotus, Cultural Virus, Megatripolis, Pendragon, Seductive Alchemy, The ICA, Wilderness Festival, Rustlers Valley (South Africa), Save the Rhino (Kenya), The Backyard (Thailand), TIP (Goa), Rift Valley Festival (Kenya) and Wajaya Beach (Sri Lanka)
