Here's my evil twin's profile-

Born in Scotland, the complex case-study and aficionado of alter-ego that goes by the name of Wurzel Swaytooth relocated to the US nine years ago. He now sits in a purple, stone cottage with his wife, two cats, and numerous ghosts. Creating art via scavenged trash, painting, sound, and writing are predominant pastimes. He is also a teacher at his local refugee centre, a volunteer at an animal sanctuary, and an aspiring student of occultism. He built his own computer from scratch and uses it to develop his skill in graphic illustration and, of late, recording audio experimentation... hence the soundcloud thingy. He's always up for working with new people, investigating new ideas, and broadening the old horizons.

Primarily, he is a bass and acoustic/rhythm/lead guitarist, but has been known to mess around with a bouzouki, mandolin, harmonica, and tin whistle...generally, he can make an awful racket with anything. Recently, he has also developed a sick fascination with synthesizers. The synth obsession has encouraged him to learn a bit of piano too, as well as serving as a catalyst in expanding techno-know-how, staggering around concepts like 'pitch-bend' and 'transposition' like an excited child.

Concerning vocal ability and style, he can be described as 'unique' at best... leading him to often approach issues from a more 'spoken-word' perspective- all of which culminates in a somewhat dubious eclecticism of queasy-listening.

The only rule he would apply to himself is to remain free of mainstream influence and avoid commitment to any specific genre. He has the utmost respect for the DIY ethic, and therefore loves the soundcloud concept and the artists therein.

Please feel free to leave comments on his tracks, as above all else, input is very much appreciated. Critique is welcome, but will be met with an exacting vengeance that would scare the gods ;)... Praise and adoration will be humbly accepted too!

And please, if you're not even going to take the time to listen to a few of his tunes, don't follow him- he will not reciprocate. He is not here to participate in a popularity contest.
