Influences - A Guy Called Gerald

"Takes me back to my dancing days. I was 14 going out to nearly every party I could find in Manchester, kicking up grooves, finding my style."

Over the last 25 years in music, Manchester legend and acid house pioneer Gerald Simpson aka A Guy Called Gerald has time and again shown his versatility and range (be it acid house, techno, funk, drum and bass, jungle...) - so it should come as no surprise that his influences are a varied bunch.

There's something in here for everyone, from hometown heroes of jazz-funk 52nd Street to the poetry of Lemn Sissay via dancehall clashes at Sting and a Mike Judge comedy film...


A Guy Called Gerald will play Live at The Bussey Building on Friday 11th December. More Details Here.

Atmosfear - Dancing In Outer Space

Reminds me of St.Alfonso's in Manchester, early 80's and British Legion club. This tune inspired me to want to play the bass guitar. I love the futuristic space thing. These were the days, leg warmers, bleached jeans; UK jazz funk
