Michael, Mike or Binky are just some of the names of Edgar Road's bass player. He first picked up the bass at school and formed a band with Allan Hall on drums and Derek Taylor on guitar. They started composing songs and playing live very quickly and a love for the stage was born. After leaving school Binky, Allan and Mark formed another band which they played regularly all over Britain, played King Tuts, T in the park, toured around France and even as far afield as America. Binky then hung up his bass for a few years but after talking with Allan and Mark again decided to form Edgar Road and managed to get Simon and Magdalena onboard. Binky said that with Edgar Road the song writing process works so well as all the band have a great working relationship and so many different influences which combine to make their sound so unique.
