In 1984, over 30 years ago now, my Roland SH-2 synthesizer, Boss Dr. Rhythm drum machine, Roland MC-202 sequencer and bad copy of a Rickenbacker fretless bass - were stolen. Bastards! These items were uninsured and I couldn't afford to replace them. Then life happened. With luck, and years of ridiculously hard work, I am now in the fortunate situation that I can be like Gauguin and take time out to pursue creativity. I won't be leaving my wife and marrying a 14-year old Tahitian girl (or getting syphilis and becoming famous after my death) but I will have fun creating noise and other things.

The name "Unit 7"  is derived from the street address of my first studio in Hong Kong located at  Unit J, 7/F, which I kept writing incorrectly. Coincidentally, it is also the name of a good Spanish crime movie with the subtitle: Modus Operandi: VIOLENCE. 

"Art is either plagiarism or revolution."
