In fact, now I think about it, I wrote his first press biog, based on a a visit to his then attic studio somewhere in north London. He was/is very talented but absolutely hated the music industry and didn't/couldn't last very long in it. He refuses all interviews these days and mostly doesn't work with anyone who actually wants him to.
Last one I read was a few years ago, I think he's a plumber or something in France now. Probably a lot happier too.
He made some very good music at one time. Personally, I preferred his more souly stuff - kinda lost interest when it got more weird.
I like weird
