Pierrot The Acid Clown

I was born to make music.

I've always been into music. I started playing bass when I was about 14 and moved onto guitar at about 17 and was in a band who were heavily influenced by Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, NIN, Faith No More, Beastie Boys & Primus etc.. We probably only had a handful of gigs, but there was lots and lots of practice... Lots of smoke... Lots of drink... More about the attitude and the music than actually playing gigs at that time.

After that I started to discover the underground scene in Bristol, Mainly techno & breakbeat and I became a DJ at 21. After DJing for years, it wasn't enough anymore and I became a producer at about 30... Then I locked myself away in a dark and horrible cave for around 10 years... Out of which popped Pierrot the Acid Clown.

I love making music that is hardware based. Computers frustrate and annoy me, so I can't use them. I'm the sequencer in essence. I'm making everything happen live. Every tweak to the music you hear is me. That's the whole ethos behind my shows.

Kurt Cobain said something along the lines of, "Play whatever you want. As sloppy as you want. As long as it's good and it has passion" and yeah, that's me...
