The Captain first DJ'd in 1983 using a Technics double cassette deck and two copies of That's What I Call Music 1. Perhaps it was the two bottles of rum he drank while playing but TinTin was not impressed. After becoming President of the Society of Sober Sailors, he replaced his addiction to alcohol with one for music and made sure to seek out record stores in every port of call.
He was co-founder of a short-lived (but critically acclaimed) Glasgow club night, Freq. First at the infamous Soundhaus and soon after at the world-famous SubClub he warmed up for the likes of Hardfloor, Dan Bell, John Tejada, Swayzak, Carl Finlow, Alex Under and Akufen.
He is now resident at funk, soul & disco night Strut! at The Village, Leith on the first Saturday of every month and plays occasional guest spots for Scottish clubs & festivals including NikNak, the Scottish Soulful Weekender and Audio Soup.
