Sputnik Weazel

With over 250+ independent original songs released, Sputnik is one of the most prolific and eclectic song writers of his generation.

In a musical journey that began in the heyday of 'punk', Sputnik has busked with Eddie Izzard & jammed with Jools Holland. He accidentally became a session musician for BMG, and has performed at thousands of venues & festivals throughout Europe; with the infamous trio 'Jimmy The Weazel', once doing over 250 gigs in one year, including five gigs in three countries, in two days.

In the 1990's Sputnik played guitar for the notorious Hot Diggedy Dogs who terrorized shopping mall's up and down the UK with their cardboard covered guitars and dustbins, and were regulars at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival Club; not to mention a live appearance on ITV with Screaming Lord Sutch... but that's another story...

From 2000-2011, Sputnik drummed and toured with the Surfin’ Lungs (Wild Punk Records: Spain), & from 2011 - 2015 he occupied the drum stool for Folk/Punk icons - The Men They Couldn’t Hang (TMTCH), playing drums & piano on their album "The Defiant".
