De Stijl... we just needed a little guidance...

De Stijl, formed in 1980, comprising of myself on vocals and keyboards, Paul Orme-Smith on bass, Mick Williams on guitar and backing vocals, Paddy Williams on drums and percussion, with Nick Thomas from time to time on clarinet and keyboards.

We hit the London gig circuit, playing such legendary lost venues as the Rock Garden and the 101 club, even sneaking in a night Upstairs at Ronnie Scotts and a short stint in Hamburg.

We recorded a single and promptly split up, but they were happy and life-changing days that I reflect upon with love and pride. Have a listen in MY VIDEOS. We were young, but we were funky!
