Wayne Harker's break arrived in 1983 in the form of being picked as the new drummer for popular South African "ethnotronic" band éVoid. His stint with the band was, however, cut short when he was arrested by the military police (AWOL during conscription). He managed to re-join them in 1984, only to quit again in 1985 to play with a Capetonian outfit called Askari.
After a short time with that group he absconded to the UK (thus depriving the army of the remainder of his mandatory service) and re-joined the other two-thirds of éVoid (the Windrich brothers) who had also settled in London.
"Woza" Wayne has been residing in Cologne, Germany since 1992 when, after a brief tour of Europe, he was denied re-entry into the UK.
He resumed his musical career there, keeping afloat via various production jobs, finally releasing his debut solo album "Culture Shock" under the Sea Weed monicker in 2006 and turning it into a live act.
