    Being a fretless player, and growing up in the 1980's in Australia, I was attracted to the playing styles and music of mostly UK players. Mick Karn (Japan), Pino Palladino (Gary Numan/Paul/Young etc), Paul Webb (Talk Talk), Robert Bell (The Blue Nile), Derek Forbes (Simple Minds) and the critically overlooked Matthew Seligman (Thomas Dolby,David Bowie etc).

    Over the years I became friends with Matthew, and we talked about the possibility of doing an album with 2 bass players. Not in a "you solo, I'll hold down the low end" kind of way, but 2 bassists weaving their lines through songs.

    Well...we did it :) Our debut album is called "Monoplane" under the moniker "Neon Sisters". The band name is taken from the Thomas Dolby song. We have Jon Klein (Siouxsie & The Banshees) on guitar, and Paul Smyth (Birds Through Fire) on keyboards and treatments. A guest vocal by David Bridie, but most lead vocals are by yours truly :)

    The album has been described as “classic electro atmosphere slightly goth pop"......

    To hear/purcahse the album, please go to......

    And remember......"BASS...the final frontier" :)
