Tom's first ever band was 'Eclipse' in North Yorkshire where he was the first and probably last ever person who played a giant stylophone in a band. Tom or "Tomski" as he was know, bought his Fender Precision Bass back in 1979 and used it in a punk/new wave band named Johann Muggins. He was also the guitarist from The Dead Sea Men under the name of Drax Waterman who are featured in this strange video. He has been playing his trusty bass guitar ever since. He also played at the Stonehenge music festival of 1984, with the band Saigon. Hawkwind and Roy Harper were the headline acts.
Tom met Brownie at a North Rocks rugby club meeting. he introduced Brownie to The Zebras who were after a new drummer for the band. They played together in the Zebras and Mr Malarkey . In 2012 Brownie asked Tom to join A Band Named Trevor which transformed into Leny's Girl and the rest is history.
