My Pleasure

I met myself in Hull, UK, in 1988 when I was born and have been together ever since. I describe myself as “weird pop” because my mum thinks it’s weird. She doesn’t like the ones that use distortion and she describes them as “scratchy”. I’m aiming to release as many albums as possible before I die.
