Pok

Pok has spent his entire lifetime composing and performing all kinds of music. From electric prog rock and blues to mandola-based folk and songwriting in the bardic tradition, you will find shards of Pok scattered liberally throughout the pages of Wud Records.

The history of the association of Pok with Wud Records goes right back to the very beginning and pre-dates even Mark Drower and the Everyones (for whom he played lead guitar). The earliest days were coloured by the embryonic twangings and wailings in the school music rooms, in the guise of Achilles Heel, Acid Root and Brick. He was known as Fooog Dinboffin during the days of Fooog Dinboffin and the Release and played lead guitar and sang with Now.

Pok’s next Wud band was Laughing Sun, which was a band that enjoyed numerous incarnations before Pok’s career blossomed when he was the frontman for the legendary Spacegoats. More recently Pok was the chief songwriter in Alchemeon before the calling of the bard became too strong to resist.

These pages are dedicated especially to Pok and his own unique brand of genius and talent.
