Matt began by playing bass guitar in school band Southern Tongue Business in the late 1980s, and played in various bands during his teens in and around the Midlands. In the early ‘90s he moved to Leicester, England to study Fine Art, where he formed the psychedelic rock band Cardboard.
“One of Leicester’s “best kept secrets” of the mid-1990’s, Cardboard were the most authentically psychedelic, trippy and eccentric of bands around…” – Alan Freeman, Ultima Thule Records.
Matt’s next incarnation was the electronic solo outfit The Electric Orange, which garnered record company interest following an “NME presents” gig at The Astoria in London.
Following a 10 year hiatus, losing himself somewhere in Eastern Europe and having a family, Matt returned to England and began playing and writing again under the moniker Interstellar McCartney, a mix of delta blues, ‘60s psychedelia and electronic loops and samples. He now lives in Brighton and is working on a number of musical projects.
