“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Stuart Zender, Incredible Bassist

Just before he went crazy my brother was jamming with him. While spending my first few years in the USA, it was hard to get out of my mind the idea that Steve was being nudged towards being in the same band as this guy (it was a few months later when Jamiroquai became huge)...it was pretty intense hearing what they could do together in Steve's bedroom on the top floor of a maisonette in South London.

Stuart and I shared some karma because we nursed Steve through the first couple of weeks of his breakdown. Those were very long nights...
