NODDY RIOT won the PARADISO Talent gala at age 15 and performed for KATE BUSH her party, shared the dressingroom with her (him very proud, being a huge Kate fan) and appeared with her on pictures in Dutch popmagazines. Had the lead in an Annie mg Schmidt musical when he was 10, and lived in squats with punks since the age of 12. Most notable was his relationship with ex-girlfriend NINA HAGEN, two colorful punks with silly voices. Was for one TV show (bios bahnhof) in her band, more as a ‘Ziggy played guitar’ gimmick, he said, ‘cause there wasnt a new guitarist yet’. They sang a rapduet together live at the ONE WORLD POETRY FESTIVAL (a rhcp song) and various (gossip/pop) magazines wrote if he was the father of her daughter or not, or that they supposedly got married on the Bahama’s.
Known for living all over the world (became 18 in New York) and did (or does) some serious clubbing from Danceteria to the Mudclub etc. Recorded the deep dub beat track ‘System’ long before House or Sputnik. His music is on the American doc.movie ‘Sex, Drugs & Democracy’ about the dutch constitution, (making it clear that he never used hard-drugs, hardly ever drinks, is known for drinking chocolatemilk at parties and only smokes the Ganja.) On various tv shows with ‘BomberjAck’ (ft dr.Dirk) & his own style of club songs.
Released the radioshow-like cd ‘This HeAvy High’ with raving reviews from serious music magazines, (OOR, Fret, Expreszo etc.) making the cd appear in shops all over the world! Recorded from London to Amsterdam, and aside from his own songs he wrote tracks with his musicians Peppz and Tomm. note; guitarist Bram B. is still in
the band after a many years and is married to mr.RioT’s sister.
NoddY RioT is also known for his looks and outspoken character, modelling and knowing the best of the artistic scenes, his world includes
friendships with for instance Andy Warhol superstar Holly Woodlawn, and partied with Mark Moore, Björk, Andy Bell, Steve Strange (even Freddie Mercury showed ‘intrest’ and tried to invite him with a letter) and all the special and colorful people.

Over the years he has performed with and without his band (for clubparties he had a glam/cyberpunk show with only his dance/club and reggae tracks feat. dancers and some musicians, for instance Ute on violin during ‘You Need More Love’) some of those places were Paradiso/Milkyway//RoXy/Mazzo/the Hippodromo/ bunker/spiegeltent/ EmpireLeicestersquare/ TeddyAwards/s.o.36/Winston/Waakzaamheid/Richter/Betty Asfalt complex/ etc.
The main thing that comes back in articles and reviews are his talent for serious but funny lyrics, silly voices and his personality.
In 2008/’09 new songs are expected, (‘TOPiC dUb’ , ‘They Don’t Know You Like I Do’(pokerface) and ‘I Love You …x !’‘) focusing on his love for Reggae DuBwise, Punk and ElectroPop again, and some tracks written together with bandmember Tommm A. Bram B. and Peppz.
