Real Name:
Doug Shipton
Profile:
Renowned record hound, LP compiler, international DJ and co-founder of accidental world music label Finders Keepers Records, South London rare-disc-detective Doug Shipton divides his time working alongside fellow B-Music crusader and label mate Andy Votel not only in unearthing schizoid channel-hopping artifacts from the alternate annals of pop history but also uncovering the finest in off-kilter independent music for Manchester’s very own homemade, house-proud and singular-minded non-label Twisted Nerve (along with co-label boss Badly Drawn Boy) - as well as manning his bespoke pocket empire Battered Ornaments Records responsible for cultivating the much sought after debut releases of reactionary fuzzed out mutant psych misfits Wolf People and cosmic Anglo-krautrockers The Laughing Windows.

Drawing from his enviably expansive record collection DJ duties have seen him traverse the globe sharing needle time with the likes of David Holmes, Jarvis Cocker, Edan, Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals), Stuart Braithwaite (Mogwai), Richard Norris (Beyond The Wizard's Sleeve/The Time And Space Machine) and Graham Massey (808 State) whilst compilation call-ups have seen him pit his wits and his wax against The Gaslamp Killer, Bob Stanley (St.Etienne), and Chris Geddes (Belle & Sebastian) amongst others.
