Lead vocalist and lyricist William Companyman has been listening obsessively to the classic Lee Perry produced Heart of the Congos, as well as digging a Rod Taylor compilation he was lucky enough to track down. The Clash, Magazine, Culture, the Cars, Kraftwerk, Augustus Pablo and Primal Scream are perennial favorites.

Wm is working on his dissertation in medieval history right now, but has become side-tracked with metaphysics. He is currently reading Heidegger's Being and Time, Luc Ferry and Alain Renaut's French Philosophy of the Sixties: an Essay on Antihumanism, and Christopher Dawson's Religion and Culture. He is also reading the Kebra Negast, the legend of the Ark of the Covenant's translation to Christian Ethiopia. He is a howling nerd.

Wm. likes firearms. a lot. so does his wife. so be polite when you visit.
