A Brief HistoryRead More...
Victor was born on Daphne Street in London England.
His first pet was a cat named Bonzo after the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band.
That would make his porn star name Bonzo Daphne.
During the lo-fi, 4-track, bedroom scene of the middle nineties, Victor sat around at CiTR in Vancouver BC, Canada alot.
He recorded a series of cassettes and gave them away for free.
Titles of some of the cassettes were: "Naardvark the Sanitary Elephant Sings the Blues", "Blowups Happen!", "m.chien.eyeballs", "pepsi cobra" and "Captain Bloody America".
Victor narrowly avoided fame and fortune in the post-Beck singer songwriter craze, by being too lazy to re-record the Kathleen Hanna paean "I wanna get punched inna face" without the gratuitous swearing so that it could be played on Canadian national public radio station, CBC, by Leora Kornfeld.
Deciding that he needed to expand his musical vocabulary, Victor took guitar lessons from an old jazz guitarist who had escaped Communist Germany and played with Dexter Gordon in Paris in the sixties. This led to a 7 year detour into jazz music.
Unfortunately, as he came to jazz late, his fingers could never keep up with his brain, which almost annoyed his brain. Victor subsequently returned to his first love, writing and recording songs, and discovered to his amusement that he and his PowerMac were now able to fulfill his musical visions.
