Biography

Taken from Martin Carr’s homepage:

I met Akira the Don in 1995 and ever since then we have talked about making a record together. Somewhere between writing and recording the 2005 Singles Club and making ‘Distractions’, I recorded these bits of music with this in mind. They’re not perfect and I would do much of it different now but I think it works as a collection and historical document. That’s right, I used the phrase ‘historical document’ within the context of my own self. I am a twat. Anyway, we still haven’t got around to making a record together and the songs here were filed in a dusty corner of my computer’s hard drive until the beginning of 1996.

One night in early 2006 Mary had gone off to work and I was wondering what to do with myself when I had the notion of inventing a band on myspace. I called myself The Black Serpent Choir, uploaded a few tracks and sent invites off to all my mates. About three people guessed it was me straight away buy I denied it of course. Adam Walton and Bethan Elfyn played the tracks on their respective radio shows and I think I even did a BSC Mix for Adam’s show? I was offered a gig at the Buffalo Bar in Cardiff which I accepted thinking it would be a good way to prolong my anonymity if I were to somehow persuade a couple of people to do the gig for me.

I asked two friends, John and Richard, If they fancied dressing up as monks and learning to play a laptop set.
