Thighpaulsandra (born Timothy Lewis to retired opera singer Dorothy Lewis) is a Welsh experimental musician. His influences are krautrock and improvised electronic music. He has worked with Julian Cope on various albums starting as an engineer with Cope in 1987 on the song Transporting. His influence also aided Cope’s Autogeddon, 20 Mothers and Interpreter albums. He also formed the band Queen Elizabeth with Cope, releasing two lengthy albums. Thighpaulsandra has also produced and appeared on other records made by Anal, RocketGoldStar, and Brain Donor. In 1997 he joined the band Spiritualized for a U.S. tour and survived the cuts to the band made shortly thereafter. He can be heard on the studio records Let It All Come Down and Amazing Grace. He also joined Coil the next year and performed on such albums as Astral Disaster and the Musick To Play In The Dark albums. During the same period, Thighpaulsandra also worked on The Waterboys’ album A Rock in the Weary Land. The artwork for his Double Vulgar album caused some controversy with several printers not willing to reproduce the homoerotic imagery. Double Vulgar II was delayed, possibly for the same reason, along with the passing of friend and colleague John Balance.

He currently remains in and still works with Spiritualized and Julian Cope, while finishing off future releases for the now defunct COIL.

    hard to buy his music though... even his website (or his other site through it is hard to buy. Foolishly, I sold my CD of "I,Thighpaulsandra" and have regretted it to this day, excellent production values, weird lyrics, guest appearance from his mother + others of note. I guess one day in the future , a deal will be made and his work will be re-released and properly distributed internationally, not just Europe or North America.... most artists forget about Australia, as we are too $ to tour and releases are often only available through expensive imports or expensive mail order......

    I, Thighpaulsandra looks like a bog-O-shite from the cover, but the music is very impressive, exelent production! Play loud! (or wear headphones!).
