Lord Prosser

 

 

 

 

 

 

It all started when Rodney Prosser and schoolfriend Patrick Mildren started Pigment fanzine in 1982 and went on to interview many bands over the following two years. After one interview with Squeeze bass player Harry Kakoulli in his Catford two up two down,  Rodney ended up crashing out on Harry’s’ sofa only to be awoken by the morning sun reflecting off the “Cool for Cats” gold disc. “I want one of those” he said. Rodney recorded his first demo on a four track in September 1985 in Northfield near Birmingham. It was at this time whilst at Birmingham Art College that he founded a thrash band “Blow by Bronson” who played three gigs(one of which was stopped by the police). Prosser was still working on fanzines and doing electronic music at home on a Wasp synthesizer. He recorded Hip Hop with Fuzz Townshend (pigbros,pwei) and a one single deal was on the cards but EMI changed their minds. He then recorded a funk track in an AC//DC roadie’s’studio alongside other thrash/hardcore bands. No deal came of this although UB40’s saxophonist liked it.

 

Then Prosser moved to London and started a band with Patrick Mildren’s  brother Sean under the name ” Guy Blonde and the Timewasters” this was more rock and roll in style and Patrick ended up replacing him. Rodney became a children’s’ entertainer and financed three poetry fanzines and worked in a department store and also as a gardener. The following year Prosser started working in The Premises Rehearsal studio with Suede,blur,St Etienne and many others. Prosser managed Suede for a week and got their demo heard by a guy from Sony after going to a party held by Dave from The Glitterband. Blur were just about to get famous and after one of their gigs Prosser saw an advert for a flat. Becoming a tenant in this flat Prosser formed “Orange” with flatmate multi-instrumentalist Charles Bladon. Working for seven months on one of the first Cubase programs “Orange” recorded an album of demos and started recording in Jam Studio right when Primal Scream were recording Screamadelica.

 

In 1993 Prosser moved to Paris.
