Back in our early days of messing around with music we met this bloke called Dewa. We got chatting and learned that, after hearing the Happy Mondays on the radio in Bali, he had decided to travel half way across the world to check out the Manchester scene for himself.

We were fortunate enough to meet Dewa almost as soon as he landed in Manchester. When we found out he was a musical genius on anything that can be played, we set to work jamming and introducing him to the Madchester scene.

These days we're still firm friends and collaborate regularly. Most recently Dewa wrote and performed the theme tune for the Donnelly24 website.
