Stanley Bad has been writing and recording songs since the late 80s (under the name Geoffrey Sick). In the early 90s he joined the "A Band" in Nottingham. One of several splinter-groups from this collective was a trio called Pineapple in which Stanley (as Geoffrey) played fretless bass and sang. Upon moving back to London in '97, he reverted to the name Stanley Bad. He currently writes songs and plays keyboards and other miscellaneous instruments with Bad Moth, Das Kosmische Bad, Divine Bran, Folysshe Noyse, the Rude Mechanicals, and the Stanley Bad Association.
