Gerald Rydel Simpson, better known as A Guy Called Gerald was born in Moss Side, Manchester, England back in 1967 – and has been in the music industry for over 25 years now, and I ONLY JUST DISCOVERED HIM!
Gerald and I come from the same part of England, (which makes me very proud to be a Mancunian!) and is best known for his work in the acid house scene of Madchester in the late 80’s.
Considering the fact that G’s been going for quite a few years now, I came across one of his biggest tracks called Voodoo Ray (one of his first tracks) and it’s immense!
Gerald played in The Haçienda back in 1988 – damn, if only I was born a few years earlier, I would’ve loved to have gotten the chance to go to Haç! He has over 10 studio albums and has even collaborated with Herbie Hancock!!!
Anyways, I’d like to share this piece of gold with you all, hope you enjoy it, and long live Manchester and it’s music!
