Biography

Terry Nation can signify three different artists.


1. ‘Terry nation’ is an english electro pop band formed in 1997 by Tobias Zaldua after recording the album ‘Totnes’.

Known for it’s lyrically heavy, synth punk-pop, melodies the album featured writing contributions from filmmakers Jamie Thraves and Marcus Shepherd and artists Jairo Zaldua and Nicoela Green.

The band was formed after the first gig was booked. This consisted of Tobias Zaldua and school friend Tobias Zundel. They then joined forces with conceptual artist and noise engineer Tim Moulder who was, at that time, claiming to be in fourteen other bands.

Tim became notorious for his skills on The Beast, a turntable with six independently controllable record arms all built into a small suitcase. Each arm had separate volume and tone controls and the ability to lock into a groove. Early gigs featured visuals from super 8 loop masters ‘Lazy Eye’ as well as the band playing video games on stage mixing in the game sounds, hell hounds jumping through windows and zombie fights to tracks such as ‘Running backwards’.

‘Terry nation’ always used the minimum of equipment. From the first album Totnes to the most recent ‘Amber’ they used one Yamaha keyboard, one Yamaha sequencer, a Roland Module and a mixer and a mic.
