I have worked with numerous people. This is by no means an exhaustive
list. Please view the discography section for further details of recorded
I was a member between 1986-1988. I played live with them in Newcastle-upon-Tyne
I became friends with cEvin, jammed with him and the other guys and
recorded/toured between 1995-1997. My last show with them was New Years
Eve 1996. cEvin is releasing a number of limited edition cds that
you should certainly check out.
I was invited to tour with Damo Suzukis Network in 1998 with
James Plotkin, after which I became a member of Michael Karolis
new project Sofortkontakt! playing shows with him during the CAN anniversary
solo projects tour of 1999 and in 2000. Sadly, Michael passed away in
November of 2001. I hope that a recording of our show in London will be
released soon. I continue to work with Damo.

Working with Zev Asher was always a joy. It was through Zev that I
first worked with Mark Nugent, who later did visuals for Download. I also
appeared at a couple of Roughage shows, notably at CISR where we burst
a few ear drums and at a small film-house (both in Vancouver) which was
subsequently released as a tape.

Two albums released thus far, the third, Agento awaiting release.
I understand it will still see the light of day but if you really want

He is a nice fellow. Incidentally, the only Propeller gig occurred at
The Gate in Vancouver, late 1998 (I think) supporting Dieter Moebius and
Michael Rother. Alexander Varty joined us on guitar.
It was only a remix but we enjoyed it. Darryl Neudorf, Kevin Kane
and I remixed a track from their Ravvivando cd. It has since been released
on Klangbad Records under the name: Freispiel.
The greatest pop band. Darryl Neudorf and Sugarpill produced the DVOA
album Piss Frond. I appeared on a few tracks from their debut cd, which
is available for free download from their web-site:
Numerous collaborations beginning with the cd, A Fire In The Bronx
Zoo. Ongoing and sparkling. A rare genius.
Gerald Belanger licensed the first DVOA cd for Cleopatra, New Words
Machine and has remained involved episodically since, also helping with
How Hollow Heart, along with Heike and Chris.
The Real Chicago
Numerous liaisons with the folks from Invisible Records (Pigface,Spasm
etc), Eric Pounder, Scott Gibbons, Stephen Collins and The Lab, Kranky
Records. A veritable cornucopia of collaborations have spawned from this
One Offs, Scribbles and Unfinished Business
Work with Germanys GVOON 1999-2000 was never dull. A
remarkable project that I still do not understand:
The Ambre/Spybey/Harris Threesome series for Hushush was a minimal
and calculated stroke of invention. 1999-2000. The reason: Dimitri della
Faille. A very lovely guy.
Jean-Yves Theriault worked
like a titan on our cd for Ichor. Matt Bailey did too.
A very cute little exhibition
in 1999 saw me contribute a miniature piece of art for Mark Pilons
gallery in Vancouver and a 45 minute loop tape of what became Mouths Like
Bailing Twine, that eventually ended up being released on the Hushush
cd tribute to the Hafler Trio:

MISSING IN ACTION
I contributed a track for a label out of NYC last year. Can't remember
the name and have lost all contact info. The track was by DVOA and was
called " Snapper Curtain the Fruit Fly." Anyone seen sight of
It has come to my attention that there have been several compilations
released featuring some Download and maybe DVOA tracks. To be honest,
I can't be bothered to hunt these out. They certainly won't be new tracks
and as far as I am concerned, it is cool that they exist. Therefore, they
have not been included on this list. However, long ago, Download worked
on a tribute track for Genesis P Orridge, covering the TG song United.
If anyone knows if this has been released, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
and give details so that I can buy a copy. I have fond memories of recording
this track and would like to hear it.
I'm not interested in receiving any. Frankly, I'm not really interested
in them period and don't have a strong opinion either way about
them. However, if you intend to bootleg, it is only fair that you ask
me if it's OK to do so. I am most unlikely to decline a polite offer,
unless I suspect that you're going to profit out of it. There is
a big difference between dubbing a few copies for trusted mates and ripping
off unsuspected members of the public by selling poor quality bootlegs.
I won't feel ripped off, I couldn't care less but the guy
who buys it from you will be unhappy. If you don't tell me first
and I find out, I will suspect that you didn't want me to know.
That wouldn't be very nice of you.
