Now here's a guy who I remember from the late 70's when he collaborated with Ian Dury putting out such funky nuggets such as:
"Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll" (1977)
"Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick" & "Reasons to be Cheerful Part 3" (1979)

A reworked "Ai No Corrida" on Quincy Jones classic 'The Dude' album (1981)

Then his "piez de resistance" 'Questionaire' featuring my fav early 80's club track "Glad To Know You" as well as the high energy latin inspired title track (1982)

His last radio release was '#1' heard on WLIR 92.7 circa 1984/85

I also found out that he did the scores for a number of notable films among that was one of my 80's favs "Earth Girls Are Easy" (1988)

It appears he sticks to playing local gigs in the UK nowadays.
Anyone else have any skinny or recollections of this talented individual?

I loved Number One...

That Oberheim synth solo in it is priceless. I love it.

Its such a great song. I used to have it programmed to my alarm clock on my computer, and woke up to it every morning. That song and Talk Talk - Its My Life.

Fond memo
