He is a "man of many thoughts and few words" almost always letting Garry Cobain take the lead in interviews with them both. He is also the more technical member of FSOL, doing most of the programming, circuit bending et cetera and creating electronic instruments at his home studio in Glastonbury, Somerset where he lives with his wife and two children in a church that stands at the intersection of nine leylines.
His first releases were as "Humanoid", releasing the Acid house single "Stakker Humanoid", which reached number 17 in the UK in 1988, and also charted in 1992 and 2001. "Slam", the follow-up, was less successful, reaching number 54. He has however continued to release music under this name to the present date primarily through FSOL's online digital download store.
Dougans has always been the quiet, technical workhorse of FSOL whilst Garry Cobain brings in his melody and softness to balance Dougans' technical wizardry ergo creating the balance that makes FSOL what it is. Where as the sound of Amorphous Androgynous is very much Cobains vehicle FSOL's more "mechanical" sound is Dougans.
