Biography

A brief history

Many years ago (1985) in a town far, far away! Kidderminster to be exact! Two dudes, Ade Scholefield and Rob Lloyd who hadn’t come down yet from tripping to the sounds of Syd’s Pink Floyd, Gong, Amon Duul, Hawkwind etc began experimenting with their own sounds. With very limited resources and technology they began to create a sound that took the listener to their own warped dimensions! This warped musical vehicle was known as “The Genetics of Destiny”

Meanwhile, up the road in Malvern, fellow sonic audio warpster Andy Jones (founder member of the ‘OM band’) had also been plying his acid rock musical toil. By a stroke of fate the two factions came together to form the basis of what was to become the “Omnia Opera”

They did a couple of bodged local gigs/indoor festivals! wherein they found the rest of the original Omnia Opera crew such as Mike Tounge and the drones Natalie Jones and Lisa Moriaty. By now this loose collection of inadequate individuals had a purpose in life!

During the latter part of the 80’s they went on to support better known acts like Cardiacs, Here and Now, Huw Lloyd Langton, The Pink Fairies, Ring, and Dave Brocks Agents of Chaos and also a million hardcore punk bands of the time! Which was nice! The then drummer ‘Toungy’ left the band and after many exploding replacement drummers they found Neil Spragg (Sir Real) who has suffered with Omnia to the present day!
