The big dentist (1982) Karl Blake began creating music in the 1970's  in his hometown of Reading, England. In 1973,  he started playing and singing principally as a  result of reading the poetry of William Blake  "from a sort of twisted filial interest only" and  hearing Black Sabbath, then took on board  such influences as Emerson, Lake & Palmer,  Faust, King Crimson and Roxy Music, etc. He  then went on to contributing vocals, guitar, bass  and drums to such bands as Kneeswand,  Orange Jelly Baby And The Six White  Chocolate Mice, Sedusa, Chrome Toad, and  Maggots. None of these outfits produced much  more than a handful of gigs, rehearsals and jam  sessions. However, in April of 1978 Lemon  Kittens was formed, and Karl’s career in music  began.   In 1988 Shock Headed Peters ended and  several new projects were started, including  British Racing Green, which produced an over  an album’s worth of material that has yet to be  recorded or released - the group only did four  concerts during its existance as a live concern,  and Evil Twin - which was Blake working with  the musician, writer and educator David Mellor -  they have produced so far one cd, 'The Black  Spot' released in 1992.   Shock Headed Peters re-formed as a two-piece  in 1990 and went on to record three further cds  (their last being 'tendercide' in 1996).  Throughout the late eighties and up to the  present day Blake also collaborated for or  guested with various other musical projects,  including Left Hand Right Hand, for whom he  recorded three cds and toured extensively. He  currently plays bass guitar for Gaë Bolg and the  Church Of Fand and bass and various other  instruments in Eric Roger’s other project Seven  Pines.   http://www.myspace.com/karlblake
