(1953- ) South-Africa born singer-songwriter, artist and author, in Scotland from infancy; for his musical partnership with Jimmy Cauty, see that entry. He is of sf interest for 2023: A Trilogy (2017) with Cauty, writing together as by The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu, which reconfigures the gonzo Paranoias of the original Illuminatus books by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson; George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949) is mentioned, and many other texts, en passant, side-of-the-mouth. Pyramids convey Paranoia-induced messages. [JC]
