The Only Living Boy In New York
Major Snagg is the name of the 'band' that perform all my own musical creations. (songs and instrumentals). I play guitars, bass, rudimentary keyboards, harmonica, and sing.
Band/artist history
I've been playing since I was 16 (a long time ago now ) This is a necessary outlet for me, as I just can't stop playing and trying out ideas. The learning process just continues . . . The first 'band' I was a member of was;- 'The Dead Popes' . . .Power Pop (1977/8), Drums, Bass, Rhythm guitars (2), Rhythm/lead guitar (me) Aqua Vitae (1979/80), Drums, Bass, keyboard and Guitar (me). Dolce Vita (1980/82) . . ., a proper Indie style pop/rock band. Drums, Bass, Rhythm guitar, Rhythm / lead guitar (me) Silent Network, (1988/90) Electronic/Pop . . .Bass/Keyboards, Vocals, Guitars (me)
Have you performed in front of an audience?
I've been involved in a few bands over the years. All great fun at the time. But no, I don't play 'live' anymore. I sometimes miss it and would love to get a band together again to perform some of my songs and some of covers of my favourite songs by musicians I admire.
Your musical influences
The Beatles, John Mayall, Ten Years After, Be Bop Deluxe, Bill Nelson, XTC, The Flower Kings . . . far too many to list. All good Pop and Rock (and a little bit of experimental music)
What equipment do you use?
I own several very nice guitars. Mostly, but not all, made by Yamaha. My bass guitar of choice is a fire glow Rickenbacker 4003. My recording system is very low tech. but I manage to coax a lot out of it. Enthusiasm, persistence and determination go a long way in helping me achieve what I do. So, the bottom line is that it's not always the guitar you own, it's what you do with it. The guitars that I own are all used in some kind of rotation...that way it justifies me having them.
Anything else?
Music making (for me) isn't something I can just turn on or off. I'm driven by music and vision. Once an Art student, always an Art student. So the musical and artistic journey goes forever on . . .
