Powered by Audioscrobbler™David Wrench spent most of his youth doing the following thing: reading Huxley and masturbating; getting thrown out of university for excessive LSD usage; dyeing his hair bright blue and drinking mouldy custard; dressing his band up as sunflowers and repeatedly falling off stage; a year spent wearing hot pants and leggings; causing trauma after being accidentally booked to do a children's party, at which the kids burst into tears and had to be calmed down by Timmy Mallett.

As well as his personal work, David Wrench is a sound engineer and producer. His credits include Zabrinski, Beth Orton, The Blueskins, Julian Cope, Jackie Leven, David Thomas, British Sea Power, The Archie Bronson Outfit, Ian McCulloch and Ectogram. He was also a member of ‘35-piece Anglo Welsh supergroup ‘The Serpents’, which included Gruff Rhys (Super Furries) Will Sergent (Echo and the Bunnymen) and Catalina Guirado (I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here).

He became obsessed with synthesizers and recorded an anti-war EP for Storm Music, World War IV, in 2003. It was to feature the title track, plus the songs Like A Communist, Creep and Fuck You And Your War On Terror. However, the release was shelved after Radiohead's management blocked Wrench's menacing electropop cover of Creep. The incident led to a hilarious stand-off between Wrench and Thom Yorke at Manchester Picadilly station, captured by a photographer from Storm Music. In 2004 he supported the Scissor Sisters and British Sea Power.
