Well, this page is for some reason the "Most Needed" and it's embarrassing to see it there, so I've done this to stop my big red name flashing at the top of the list.
I'm Darrell - a writer, musician, amateur broadcaster, actor and designer (lots of fingers in pies but not many thumbs), living in the north of England and doing so slightly against his will.
In addition to TMBG, I'm a big fan of XTC, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, and the Bonzo Dog Band/Neil Innes. Also like The Divine Comedy, Madness, Wings, Frank Zappa, basically any avant garde pop with a shred of artfulness or originality. Don't like much new stuff that's around, but the Irish bands HAL and Pugwash are both amazing. My biggest musical passion is pastiche, parody and soundalike music - hearing it done well never ceases to make me physically giddy.
As you can now see, "Most Needed" was somewhat of an overstatement.
