I'm some guy who play music on the south coast of England. I play with a bunch of bands, play a bunch of instruments and have written a bunch of songs. I want to be a fireman when I grow up and I once saw a bear. It's part of the mirror, not a pirate earring


Doog's Music

Weevil Knievel- Geeky rock-pop-rock-surf-rock via Pavement, Pixies, Weezer and Beach Boys

Casa Bonita - Guitar/drum quirk-noise-math-rock-pop duo, sounds like Lightning Bolt making out with Primus

Doog - Ongoing solo project, on the backburner while real, fulfilling bands occupy Doog's time. Frank Black/Pixies, Stephen Malkmus/Pavement, Beck, Grandaddy, Eels and a bunch of other bands inspire this un.

Caution Horses - Shouty jerky dancey rock, once described as "the Dead Kennedys fisting Franz Ferdinand". I just play bass and do minimal b.vox, but it's awesomefun.

I've also played bass and sang 2nd vocal in southern DIY math-rock heroes the Illuminati 3, fronted a Pixies cover band and even played drums and sang back up in poorly named pop/rock covers band Flavors.
