Des Slow has been in a number of bands over the years. In the past it was mainly dadaist performance groups and anarcho-punk.
Des Slow and The Stop Pills first formed in the grey suburbs of South East London in the late 80s, they recorded a couple of demos before Des decided to relocate to a Scottish Island with his family. In the early 90s Des moved to Kendal in Cumbria and aside from an occasional strum stopped making music. A few years ago he started to make experimental sounds digitally. Elements is the first solo effort by Des Slow and was created by rendering html as sound and manipulating/editing it. (Elements is being re-issued by Earth Monkey Productions very soon)
Des has recently been working with another Cumbrian sonic artist Still, to produce a CD of material entitled De Stijl.
Des is currently working on war ambient soundscapes and a concept CD focused on 'the red terror' of the 1970s and beyond.
