Scott Piering

Profile:
Influential and respected American-born plugger for many successful British music acts, such as Pulp, The KLF, The Orb, Placebo, Underworld and The Smiths (for whom he also acted as caretaker manager). He founded his company, Appearing Promotions, in 1982.

Piering contributed his voice to several The KLF releases and narrated their "The Rites Of Mu" film. When the group bowed out at the 1992 BRIT Awards, it was Scott's voice that announced "Ladies and gentlemen, The KLF have now left the music industry". In their infamous book The Manual (How To Have a Number One The Easy Way), Drummond and Cauty say that without his work "…this book would have to be retitled How To Get To Number 47 — With A Certain Amount of Difficulty"

Piering died of cancer on 24 January 2000, aged 53. The following year the British Radio Academy founded "The Scott Piering Award" in his memory, whilst 2002 saw the release of 4 Scott - a tribute album featuring several of the artists he had worked with.
