Mini Bio (1)
Bolton-born singer/songwriter (stagename: Badly Drawn Boy) recognised for his trademark tea cosy hats. Damon Gough's chance encounter with DJ Andy Votel in Manchester's Generation X bar brought about a meeting of minds that would launch independent record label Twisted Nerve (named after the Bryan Forbes film) and a succession of increasingly well-received Badly Drawn Boy EPs in the late 1990s. 2000 saw Gough's debut album "The Hour of Bewilderbeast" scoop the coveted Mercury Music Prize and, within a year, he'd recorded the soundtrack to Hugh Grant vehicle "About A Boy". After a spell signed to XL Recordings, Gough signed to EMI. Other albums include "Have You Fed The Fish?", "One Plus One Is One", and "Born In The U.K".
