When he’s not out in the garden pulling up old bike frames from the flower beds or writing, One Deck Pete does like making a bit of music. In times gone by he’s played bass in Ded Yampy, The Artisans and British Racing Green, was part of One Deck & Popular and also one of the trio involved in the London club night Steroid Abuse. These days, Pete produces music as Madtone and self-releases it through his Bandcamp here. More details via the Facebook page here or contact Pete at onedeckpete (at) gmail.com
