9. HOW DID YOU FIRST DISCOVER CAPTAIN BEEFHEART & THE MAGIC BAND,
AND WAS THERE A PARTICULAR SONG THAT MADE YOU SEE THE LIGHT?:
I bought 'Trout Mask Replica' simply on the basis of a reviewer describing it as the weirdest record ever released. While it took me a while to really
appreciate the album (I'm still finding new realms of pleasure now!), i immediately loved the fractured guitars, shamboling drums and weird vocals
of Ella Guru.

None and never will, I'm afraid, but i got to see the Magic Band play Glastonbury in 2004! that was good.

13. MUSICAL ABILITY / TRAINING:
Grade 6 on piano, grade 6 on guitars (i like electric and acoustic), enthusiasm on all manner of drums, bass, and percussion. Yay bongo!

14. ANY OTHER INFO YOU WISH TO ADD?
I have a number of tracks - compositions, arrangements, covers, and simple crew-arounds - which can be sent to people as mp3s or whatever the file
ame is. No real CDs as such though. If anyone is interested/for more details contact me on rattatouie_provencal@hotmail.com.
