“I’ve known Andy for many years, in the early years playing sessions for me and later on as Bassist in ‘The INC’ and Sham 69, I have also used Andy for collaborations whilst writing and recording experimental music. Andy is a very fast learner and extremely talented musician – I couldn’t recommend him more highly.” – Dave Parsons, Sham 69
