During his first year at Exeter University he sported a long coat and a trilby hat; Steptoe & The Bunnymen chic. Still likes clothes. Changes his hairstyle more often and more radically than the others. Writes the bulk of the songs which the band arranges and mutates. Drives a Fiat Punto. Was born with his right eye closed and paralyzed.
