We started MAD because Swansea was a cultural desert and we want MAD to be the oasis! I was born in Swansea and involved in local music the majority of my life since the early 1970s, helping to form the seminal Swansea punk band The Autonomes. Since then I have been involved in countless local bands in different styles and genres, writing and arranging songs, playing guitar and drums (not at the same time). I have written hit songs for bands such as the Poo Sticks and mentored countless bands along the way. Since the 1970s I have seen a lot of ideas and styles come and go but it always comes down to are people interested in what you are doing

What gets me up in the morning is knowing the wealth of talent that exists in Swansea and wanting to share that with the world.
