Keith started playing guitar aged nine. All through his teen years he was in various local bands until he discovered the joys of acid house and rave in the early 90's. Weekends were spent going to free parties up + down the country, filling up a van with mates and after much pissing off the police and authorities culminating in the rave that was Castlemorton. After this scene died down a bit h...e started to frequent the now legendary clubs like the Drum Club, Sabresonic, and Full Circle where he met and became friends with Jagz Kooner and Andrew Weatherall of Sabres of Paradise... Released a record under the name of 7hz, which came out on Phil Perry's Full Circle label. Using the minimal knowledge of studios and a keen ear, he did the front of house sound for the Sabres on their support tour with Primal Scream in 95. This was to be a life changing experience. Then became in house engineer at Sabresonic studios where he learned to program and mix. After meeting and working with all sorts of people that used the studios, went to belfast to work with David Holmes and co produced his album 'Lets Get Killed' . Forged a now ten years partnership with Weatherall as Two Lone Swordsmen, when the other members of Sabres where busy with their other band, The Aloof. Fast foward ten years + Keith and Andrew have released 4 albums, 2 for Andrews own label, Emmisions and two for Warp records. Also countless e.p's and 12's and remixed many different artists inc Primal Scream, Spiritualized, Howie B, David Holmes,Stereo Mc's, Lali Puna, St Etienne, Alter Ego, Calexico, Broadcast, Six by Seven, Dot Allison, Slam, and erm, Texas... to name a few. When Andrew was busy djing every weekend, Keith would get in studio on his own and record his own stuff which was to become his Radioactive Man project.... Has since recorded 2 albums, 'Radioactive Man' and 'Booby Trap' on Rotters Golf Club, and various e.p's inc 'The Uranium e.p ' and 'Dive and Lie Wrecked' . Also remixed the likes of Freq Nasty, Red Snapper, Meat Katie and Tipper . The third album entitled 'Growl' will be out in spring 2007 also on Rotters Golf Club . Also a 12" will be out on his own label -Control Tower entitled 'Ye Olde Skoole Rayve e.p' in Sept 06 Control Tower was started in 99 with fellow cohort simon brown, a.k.a The Dexorcist. They've released their own material and stuff by Bass Junkie, Kansascityprophets, Dead Silence Syndicate, Dirty Hospital, Silvah Bullet, and have a new signing from Lithuania called Moondisco, and also old friend subliminal criminal. Things have come somewhat full circle when the Swordsmen got a drum kit and blew the dust of a few guitars with their Double Gone Chapel album for Warp in 2004 . Similar musical adventures continue with their newly finished album entitled 'Wrong Meeting', after a tour last year taking in most of the major european festivals.. Keiths djing has taken him all over the planet inc Tokyo, New York, San Francisco, Istanbul, Budapest, Barcelona, Rome, Paris and er Preston. His dj style is underground dancing music taking in Electro, Breaks, Techno and Drum n Bass.. 2008 and its high time for a new Radioactive album.. entitled 'Growl' it will be out on 12th May 2008 but is available now through all major sites.. The album is a culmination of the last 5 years of studio stuff.. schizophrenic as ever, theres all sorts of vibes on there.. lots of live dates this summer.. Also playing guitar in Christopher D Ashley's band doing festivals and club dates..
