My name is Ian C Bishop from N London UK. Now residing in Jersey City. Singer, songwriter first and fore most. Guitarist, clarinetist. Arranger and mixer. First band (Ultra Vivid Scene) signed to '4AD'. From there I moved from the UK to NYC's Lower e side. And cut my teeth as a guitarist with locals 'Bobbo'. Four years later on returning to the UK my own newly formed band 'Rosa Mota' signed to Beggars Banquet. Their fist release "Drag for a Drag" was released to acclaim and bemusement by the UK press.The awesome 2nd LP 'Wishful Sinking' was released on MUTE RECORDS in 96. 3rd & final album 'Bionic' recorded by Steve Albini at London's Abbey Road. After 3 albums,much touring & gigging & variouse singles & videos the band of 3 boys and 2 girls split. The cinematic and beautiful 'Horsepower' released 3 well received LP's. Magestic & intense, 'NX' recorded an albums worth of unreleased tracks that peak and soar combining the many disperate sounds of the previous bands.

Although not presantly playing regularly with a band I am still heavily involved with writing, performing and recording music.

Low Life Scum is a nice, slow track. Would be a good album ender, I think.

Great lyrics in Electric Arms and Legs.

Binding Love Spell I couldn't find, but I'm looking forward to hearing it!

Hi Ian
Really liking Low life and electric, can't listen to Binding as its not on your list!!!
Really like the clean use of the chords you'd usually hear heavily distorted in a deftones style song - strangely they work well with the softer sung vocal, who'dve thunk it; you obviously LOL 5 stars from me.
