I taught myself piano, aged 8 by watching a friend of mine who was somewhat of a child prodigy... he also learned drums from his older brother, and so we formed a band and did a gig at school... kiddie stuff, like 'the entertainer' and the theme tune from the banana splits.
So I worked at butterfly for a few years, and got a record deal for my band 'purple om'. we recorded our album at butterfly, and mixed some of it at a posh studio (I was tempted to go back to virgin! hehehe!), but when we finished it, the record label said we had spent 120,000 pounds, and couldn't afford to release it in the way they wanted, so they dropped us... meanwhile I was starting Hallucinogen.
