Biography

Tim Wright, aka Tube Jerk, Sand, Germ ,etc, shares a name with another Tim Wright: alias Cold Storage, a British musician most famous for his work in video game soundtracks such as Wipeout.

Tim is capable of turning his hand to just about anything. From techno, electro, garage, hip hop, punk and beyond this York based multi-genre-ist fuses sounds and styles like a musical magpie with a taste for circuit boards and gold-plated plugs.

His ascent from bedroom enthusiast to acclaimed artist was, as you’d probably expect, far from conventional. An early musical tutoring courtesy of his parents classic pop collection (Pet Sounds, Dark Side of the Moon, Tubular Bells) soon gave way to a far more exploratory sense of adventure as Wright began unearthing gems from the outer reaches of the musical stratosphere. By his teenage years the likes of Captain Beefheart, The Fall, Psychic TV and Test Department ruled in his musical world. Enhanced by his classical leanings it was always safe to assume that he would tend towards the extreme.

By the time he moved to Manchester in 1988 the confrontational and overtly political howl of the anarcho Crass / Conflict axis and the genre busting fusion of dub rhythms and punk attitude of the On-U-Sound Collective (Tackhead / African Headcharge / Bim Sherman) had begun to make an impact.
