So, in the interests of full disclosure, I need to mention that Richard is my uncle and has been something of an inspiration to me throughout my life as he was my first exposure to the life of a working musician. Seeing him play Glastonbury with his band Startled Insects in the early 80s went a long way to set me on the path the eventually lead to this website being born, so when he came to me with news of his new project that sat nicely within the musical sphere that we cover here at E&D, working with Tony Levin of King Crimson, I had to take the chance to interview him really!

(((O))) FEATURED INTERVIEW
I’ve had some real problems in my lifetime dealing and living with mental health issues. I’ve not really felt comfortable talking about it until more recently. I feel like it’s important to talk about these things because people consider them ‘awkward’ topics. I used writing music as a means to channel it and I felt a lot better for writing music and going to shows and being able to put my time and energy into something I loved so much really helped me.
