Bingo! we thought, and then Oh! – We’d plastered it with commercial music. As a seasoned frontman of seminal 80s beat outfits like “The 3 Aviators”, “Scrambled Dregs” and “Diverse Oscillation”, I thought I might have the chops to write the entire score in a week.
Out came the trusty Atari, Cubase, and traditional instruments like The Casio Rapman
Since those salad days I’ve bought more gear (of a musical variety), gained lots more experience and written commercially in a huge variety of styles for shows on all the major UK broadcasters as well as overseas.
