Context

About 2 years after I arrived in Toronto having deserted Thatchers England for a better life, I began playing in the 2 bands that undoubtedly saved my literal life at the time, by providing an outlet and something to lose myself in, during a very turbulent and intense period of adjustment to my new surroundings and it's accompanying pile of devastating setbacks, because wherever you go there you are.

Music was my girlfriend.

Initially The Nina Hagen Das rehearsed in my garage at 778 Crawford Street (The Dyke House), with Mourning Sickness rehearsing 2 doors down at Kathedral B (The Anarchist House). We could hear each other rehearsing on what was otherwise, a quite traditionally "older European family" street! My first friendship at Kathedral B was with one of their fierce, scrappy, old tom cats "Rex" - before meeting the reamaining occupants and eventually sharing the Kathedral B rehearsal space.
