(aka Keith Tenniswood) began his musical career, aged nine, when his father thrust a guitar in his hand. Destiny also took charge when he met up with Andrew Weatherall
and The Sabres Of Paradise at night-clubs like 'The Drum Club', 'Full Circle' and 'Sabresonic' and began working with Weatherall manipulating sound on the Sabres tour.
Having been an integral part in the Weatherall studio set up since, it seemed a natural step that upon the demise of Sabres, Weatherall and Tenniswood should arise from the debris and form their own production team, the Two Lone Swordsmen
. In 1996 they released their first album together as the Swordsmen, entitled 'The Fifth Mission-Return To The Flightpath Estate' on Weatherall's own Emissions imprint. They have since recorded for Warp Records.
Outside of the Two Lone Swordsmen
, Tenniswood leant his talents to David Holmes
'Lets Get Killed' album and has also worked with The Aloof and Red Snapper.
He released his debut album also titled "Radioactive Man
" on Weatherall's new label, Rotters Golf Club, in September 2001. The album received many plaudits (amongst them, "One of the UK's most underrated DJ/producers") and established him as a producer in his own right, disassociating him from the 2 Lone Swordsman moniker he previously carried.
After having been ensconced in the studio with Weatherall for the last nine months, working on new tracks, smoking spliff and then thinking of titles, the result has been the eagerly anticipated follow up album "Booby Trap" released on May 2003. He successfully debuted live 2 years ago at Sonar Festival in Barcelona and has toured Europe twice with RGC Records.
Tenniswood fills his weekends by playing records in nightclubs. He can be found DJing in the UK and overseas most weekends, and still finds the time to work on his own label Control Tower which he set-up with The Dexorcist and Royston.
