WHO AND WHAT IS A DR. MATT????


Hmmm... this could take some time...

First up, I play the BASS with the band THE LIZARDS (as if you didnt know!). I've prepared a host of bass resources which you can have a nose at by clicking just here.

So What do I sound like? What are my influences? Hmmm... lets see...

I tend to like to play all over the bass and am probably too busy at times, but its a lot of fun and people seem to like it.

My influences are many and diverse but here are a few which spring to mind... Bruce Foxton (The Jam), Flea (Chilli's), Bootsy (JB, P-Funk), John Entwhistle (The Who), John Taylor (Duran Duran), Mani (Stone Roses) and lately Damon Minchella (Ocean Colour Scene). The list could go on and on, but would only get boring.

You want to hear what I sound like? Come and see the band!

I write the band newsletters, which are archived here, so if you have any complaints, I suggest you get in touch with me! Drop me a line if you want to be added to the mailing list.

By day I keep the wolves from the door by working as a Research Fellow at the University of Reading. I'm a psychologist by trade and if you are interested in that kind of thing then click just about... here.

Apart from the music and the brain-scraping I generally ride in the vehicle of kings, the VW CAMPER. I just love to takeoff in it, come the summer!

I am originally from the jewel of the North, Newcastle (well, actually just outside on the coast... Whitley Bay), but have spent a fair bit of time in Brighton and Cardiff before landing here in Reading.

That'll do for now, I think.
