Derek Rath: Rumor has it that, still a wee tot, he was found banging out a mean rhythm on a baby rattle to his somewhat gurgled version of “Bring It To Jerome”, but this proved inaccurate as Bo Diddley wrote it many years later. More factual is running an antique store in Portobello Road, London while freelance roadie-ing for many Pub Rock and African bands. This led to a trip stateside from which he never returned, living in the Venice area for over 30 years, DJing and music programming at KCRW and KPFK, his home for the last 14 years. His personal music preferences range somewhere between Sun Ra, Screaming Lord Sutch and Pygmy music.
