Play: The Atrix – Treasure on the Wasteland.

A band from Dublin, released in 1980. I heard it on pirate radio and my fingers hit the record button on my cassette recorder, loved it since.

Favourite song you have been involved in musically:

Play: Lee Harveys – Bright Light.

Again I have many but maybe “Bright Light” from the first Lee Harveys Album “Gun City”. It was my first time back in the studio in 17 years, we recorded the album in one day.
