I had just returned from the Solomon Islands, got over my bout with Malaria and accepted that my unrequited teenage love had run off with my best friend in my absence. I can hardly blame her in hindsight, i was an intense little bespectacled man in my teens, took myself waaaay too seriously at times. This lead me to answering a guitarist wanted ad on a whim and joining a band called Feverdream.
We played anglo-indie shoegazer music and it was great fun. We released an indie EP and two albums pretty well even before i could legally order a drink.
