Biography

Bristol, United Kingdom

Matt Elliott is a singer/songwriter from Bristol, United Kingdom, who plays music with an approach of a dark ambience. He also produced & recorded under the name The Third Eye Foundation.

Elliott was first inspired to investigate & to attempt to understand music at around 7 years old on hearing the mournful tones of a russian orthodox choir & wondering how music alone can move you to tears. This would eventually inspire him to study music un-academically through his own research into sound & music.

He started his musical career in a record shop from the age of 16. A second hand record shop (The legendary Revolver Records who’s employees have included Dave Pearce (Flying Saucer Attack), Daddy G, Debbie Manning (Foehn)) owned by a music enthusiast to rival John Peel, Matt considers these years as his basic education in music. He formed along with Kate Wright (Movietone) & Rachel Brook (Movietone/Flying Saucer Attack) the band ‘Linda’s Strange Vacation’ which met on Sundays to rehearse in a shed at Brooks parents with begged borrowed & stolen instruments including rolls of carpets, snooker cues, a broken keyboard then slowly the guitars & drums arrived. Kate Wright & Rachel Brook went on to form Movietone with which Matt played as an occasional member. About the same time Brook & Dave Pearce formed Flying Saucer attack & the first version of The Third Eye Foundation appeared, the idea being a loose collective. Elliott recorded with Flying Saucer attack under this name involving Debbie Manning (Foehn) & Niven Murray on a couple of tracks.

    So it goes, sold as so (as above, so below) - but they paid the price in solid gold. . . the rest of the words become relative via some odd strain of clairvoyant communion, since I'm already blitzed close to your point. I can see the ravaged, naked ghosts of gold diggers; you could try sending a pm to Matt.

    I'm certainly ready to get blitzed to the point of acute alcohol intoxication in the name of any good man or woman who can and will help me figure out lyrics on "South Canadian Sea" till the "SO I'M AFRAID COME JUDGEMENT DAY" part
