Andrew Poppy was born in Chatham, Kent in 1954. In a home that didn’t buy a TV until the 1966 World Cup, his creative future was shaped listening to early Elvis singles and tape loop cut-ups by seminal avant-garde composer Karlheinz Stockhausen on pirate radio.
Signed to ZTT by Paul Morley in 1984, Poppy produced two acclaimed albums of minimalism and early classical/electronic crossover: The Beating of Wings (1985) and Alphabed (A Mystery Dance) (1987) and one – Under The Son (1988) – which went unreleased until 2004. > read his full biog
