"Blue-John is the kind of northern visionary who fantasises about being a wall of death rider and offers you teacake when you call."

- John Kennedy of XFM, Dazed & Confused Magazine

Loving and learning from the songs of John Martyn and Bert Jansch, and living in the quirky and yet mysterious seaport of Whitby, I set out to fashion similarly timeless records.  I call my collaborators Amateur Humans, and they include my brothers, Thom and Rich, and cousin Peter.  We like to do things our way.

The Underground Resistance is taken from Ghosts of the Seven Subways - an LP by electro-monk Quidgybopper.
