Music’s been a vital force in my life for as long as I can remember - my earliest memory of being intrigued by sound is holding my cassette recorder’s plastic mic up to the tiny speaker of my red National Panasonic transistor radio.
I recorded ELO’s ‘It’s A Living Thing’ and ran downstairs to play my parents the bit when the whole song ‘goes all whooshy’ (tape flanging probably): “Listen to this!!”
I had a taste of conventional work from 19 through to 24 – sales, financial services and later the drinks trade. While this gave me a good grounding in business/work practices, it left me in no doubt that this wasn’t the life for me. A pivotal moment came when my manager incredulously exclaimed: “For you Tony, work is just something that comes between weekends, isn’t it?”
I duly swapped careers and made my weekends work. DJing and organising club nights for the best part of 20 years – catching the beginnings of the electronic recording revolution – DJing at weekends left me all week to ‘play’ in the studio and funded my search for old gear.
Bob Dylan once said that a man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do: Soundgas is the result – I love what we do. We are constantly growing and evolving and for me it is a journey of discovery and wonder. This is my passion and I love that I get to share it here – thank you.
