In part: “Moved to Sydney again when I was 13—my first day at h-school was shock shock!! Got cornered by the heavies and along comes Andrew Farriss and large friend to stop me from putting shit on everyone in my HK accent and stop the bashing too! Quite a funny meeting that turned into a long friendship. Andrew and I being the sensitive souls we were started making music our prime motive in life and eventually with the help of others recorded a lot of experimental music in garages and living rooms etc.” In fine condition.
