Started his bass carrer with Norwich bands Granite, The 4 dimensional scientists and Madder Than The Inmates. Later moved to North Cambs and formed the blues rock band The 4tune cookies. Then joined hi-energy/punk power trio Cold Shoulder. Matt left the band in 2008 to do some recording (and to let his ears recover...)
The music here is all written by Matt.
