‘The Colonel’ is the warped, dribbling musical alter-ego of Lucian O’Neill, an otherwise ordinary 26-year old born and raised in Ipswich, and living in Sheffield since 1999.
A lifelong musician, and a DJ for 10 years, he was cobbling together music on a 4-track tape-machine in his early teens – as a jazz, funk, and breakbeat fanatic, but never saved up the money for a fancy PC till he was 24.
The Colonel is always looking for people to collaborate with (and eat), and welcomes feedback on his music.
