My brother Patrick formed the band Evangelista in 1993. They released one extended player CD, boxes of which are still in the attic in my mother’s house. ‘Supermodel’ is their signature piece. It is atmospheric, reminiscent of Joy Division. The lyric ‘You are a Lady of Victories’ references the Catholic church in Hightown where I was baptised.

Evangelista were Pat Reid (vocals), Martin Ellis (guitar), Paul Ewart (bass) and Al Murray (drums). Pat and Martin were at school together in Crosby, Liverpool. Pat was at Oxford with Al who would later achieve great fame as a stand-up comedian.


Here are some photographs of myself, my brother and Al Murray performing at the Balham Banana in 2004.
