Emerging from Bristol’s early post-punk scene, back in the eighties one-time roofer Gary Clail began to make musical waves with his white-boy toasting over the dub splendours of the On-U Sound reggae stable as a warm-up at their live shows.

With his strong Bristol burr and ragamuffin stage presence, Gary has remained a force of nature ever since. He has a polemical street passion that remains undiminished and his socially conscious pronouncements of dissent are both unsettling and yet sometimes extremely funny. His music is uncompromising, political, often dark but also extremely danceable.Gary began his recording career in 1985 and he soon achieved his own underground fame. He had a brief flirtation with the overground too when his “Human Nature” single made the top ten in the 1992 national charts.
