MATT's Profile

Profile pictureI started playing the piano aged eight but music didn't really 'click' with me until I got an acoustic guitar as a birthday present when I was 12 or 13.

Throughout secondary school I was in a number of bands, mostly covers bands. However, with one of them there was a problem: the band had been asked to play a gig but it had a lead guitarist, two rhythm guitarists and no bass player. So between the two rhythm guitarists it was decided that one had to become a bassist, and it was me that folded first! My love of bass developed from there. A year before I went to university a different group of friends were participating in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme at a local youth centre. Every year there was a presentation in the borough for all of the people that attained a certificate that year, and somehow this group I was involved in were somehow coaxed in to playing some songs at the awards ceremony, despite two of the five members not being instrumentalists. It was then that The Scapegoats were born (around February 2001) and we haven’t looked back since. We have changed line-up significantly twice since then, the current one is comprised of myself, my best friend, his sister and my cousin. At present we are building our online presence on YouTube, SoundCloud, Facebook, etc. Our portal can be found online here: www.thescapegoats.co.uk
