I started in the music industry at the age of 16 as a Trainee Tape Operator at Maison Rouge Studios Fulham Broadway London, owned then (1981) by Jethro Tull. Over my 8 weeks there I had the pleasure of working with such artists as Twisted Sister, Level 42, Elkie Brooks, Culture Club, Howard Jones and Jethro Tull. It was here I developed a huge liking to the “setting up/takedown” of bands equipment which helped me on future tours.
1984 saw me in Majorca doing a 6-month stint as a DJ for a nightclub based on site of the Mini Folies complex in Puerto De Andraixt. I joined Windsong Record Exports and moved to the sister company Music for Nations at the end of 1985 until July 1987. During my time at MFN I got to know many bands and would go on to work with the likes of Onslaught, Nuclear Assault, English Dogs to name a few.
In 1987 I moved to LA to work with Speed Metal band Holy Terror and other local bands. We did a West Coast tour and during this secured a 7 week European Tour as support DRI where I was the only road crew and learnt a lot about stage management and touring in general. Later in 1987, I returned to the UK with the intention of returning to the US in January 1988, however, I went on to work for Tour Merchandise company Alex Co.
In 1990 I returned to the road with Preston thrashers Xentrix for a full UK/Scotland and 3 dates in Ireland tour. The next 23.5 years saw me out of the industry, however, I was still connected with it via various contacts and countless gigs, press and festivals.
I have always had an avid interest in Radio from a very early age and was given the opportunity to co-host a show a few years ago, a Motorhead Special and I was asked if I wanted to invest in DR which I have done so I have since done 11 Live shows and I am currently presenting my own show for Deal Radio, Mr P,s Everything Louder Than Everything Else on a Friday Evening, at the time of writing this I have broadcast 80 shows, and I am currently co-director.
I am also a founding investor for Evolution Music.
Remember when music was SO important? When you'd get on your bike with your pocket money burning a hole in your pocket and cycle through the rain to the local record shop because you just HAD to buy SOMETHING? Remember going round your mate's house to hear his new albums and singles? Lovingly crafting a mixtape for someone you were trying to impress?close
