Music "In today’s climate of music as 'commodity', and its associated downward spiralling collection of one chord wonders masquerading as artists….. Who will save the world?"...

"Enter the SGT Project. A collection of music with a nod back to earlier times, but encompassing the technology and the outlook of the twenty–first century.

Music crafted with skill and lovingly paying tribute to a musical past – shadows of a time of progression and creativity. There is a sense of boundaries being pushed – jazz meets rock meets acid meets metal meets blues and interacts with the chemistry of the three musicians involved.

This unique totally instrumental trip makes great rock music that has vitality and a feeling of new areas being explored – a freedom to experiment with any possibility.

But hey – let’s not disappear up our own arses completely – the bottom line is simply that these guys are exciting adventurous musicians and a great live act".

Ged Kingsford
Percussionist Ged Kingsford began playing drums at the age of eleven. By the age of fifteen, he was playing in semi-professional bands. He first recorded a work solely for percussion, called 'Opening of Doors' at the age of nineteen.
Since then, Ged has gone on to work with many musicians in both mainstream and experimental situations.

Ged was a founding member of the avant-garde rock band ‘Metabolist'. The band attracted considerable attention from the music press and from luminaries such as Brian Eno, and the band 'Can'. They attained the position of number four in the European Rock Chart, compiled by Sounds Magazine, who called the band "One of the most interesting bands in Britain" at that time.

Kerrang said about Ged "Outrageously Talented Sticksman, Truly Fine Musician"

"All rhythms are overlapping throughout the world. and I am suggesting that differences in music/rhythm are more cultural/ stylistic as opposed to musical/ rhythmic." - Ged Kingsford.
