Lee Braddock – Bass Guitar
Lee bought his first bass at the age of 16 from Argos in the Metrocentre back in 1988 and did very little with it until he went to Nottingham University and discovered real music. The punk bass of New Model Army and the Funk rock of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Primus, Janes Addiction and Faith No More kindled a flame that just wouldn’t extinguish. Embracing the Junk Culture of the early 90’s Nottingham Student scene Lee hit the small time with a local student band, Premonition, in which his funky groove juxtaposed with the sounds of Levitation and House of Love.
Unfortunately the real world got in the way and Lee had to cut off his hair and let the dye grow out in favour of the big world of business. The bass collection grew dusty, the backline rusted and the pots started to crackle until some 15 years later – the spark re-ignited and burns with a new fury. Stoked by We Are Kin, Lee is driving the low-end with a passion and drive that would make Flea blush…
