TENNISWOOD (Radioactive Man) .................A Brief History
Keith Tenniswood began his musical career, aged nine, when his father thrust a guitar in his hand. Destiny also took charge when he met up with Andrew Weatherall and The Sabres Of Paradise at night-clubs like “The Drum Club”, “Full Circle” and “Sabresonic” and began working with Weatherall manipulating sound on the Sabres tour.
Having been an integral part in the Weatherall studio set up since,it seemed a natural step that upon the demise of Sabres, Weatherall and Tenniswood should arise from the debris and form their own production team, The Two Lone Swordsmen. In 1996 they released their first album together as the Swordsmen, entitled “The Fifth Mission-Return To The Flightpath Estate” on Weatherall’s own Emissions imprint. They have since recorded for Warp Records.
Outside of the Two Lone Swordsmen, Tenniswood leant his
talents to David Holmes “Lets Get Killed” album and has also
worked with The Aloof and Red Snapper. In 1997,
Keith set up Rotters Golf Club along with Andrew and Nick
Denton and has since released material under his solo guise of Radioactive
After having been ensconced in the studio with Weatherall for the last nine months, working on new tracks, smoking spliff and then thinking of titles, the result has been the eagerly anticipated follow up “Booby Trap” released on the 26th of May 2003. He successfully debuted live 2 years ago at Sonar Festival in Barcelona, and once again will be doing a tour to coincide with the release of “Booby Trap”, (dates to be announced).
Tenniswood fills his weekends by playing records in night-clubs. He can be found DJ¹ing in the UK and abroad every weekend, with regular slots at Haywire Sessions@ 93 Feet East.London and Electrocuted@ AKA Bar, London. As well as working on his own label “Control Tower”.
Radioactive Man – “Radioactive Man”
“ Radioactive Man sounds like evolved electro, more futuristic than retro. And its damn near essential.” (Jockey Slut, September 2001)
“ Radioactive Man’s debut LP is a thing of great beauty; ten tracks of sublime, bone-crunching beats featuring resonating basslines to make your stomach churn, mutant noises and off-kilter drums.” (Jockey Slut, September 2001)
“Fittingly, Radioactive Man made his live debut at electronic Olympiad, Sonar. It’s a very Sonar record; sexy, European, cultured and among the best you’ll hear all year.” (NME, October 2001)
music albums like ‘Radioactive Man’ help reaffirm your faith
in what we’ve labelled ‘dance music’.” (7
