" I am the decomposer..." - MVW.

Michael Valentine West is the exotic and slightly fictitious sounding name of the only living member of Twiggy and the K-Mesons as well as many other aliases (Suck Susan, The Anal Teens, Lower Third, Mikimo Sosumi...etc).

He is a multi insrumentalist, singer and producer and sometime model.

Previous lives have included such diversions as being a member of Modified Toy Orchestra and receiving "runner up single of the week" in the NME for "We Are The Boredom" (Twiggy And The K-Mesons).

Michael Valentine West is an artist of varying guises. One second it's Prince being rodded by a strapped-up Trent Reznor, the next it's like Aphex Twin having his nuts Tasered by Autechre... "either way it's the soundtrack to some kind of cyber bondage dungeon that makes you want to stick your reproductive organs in the CD player." (- review by The Fly Magazine).

working with acoustic elements and occaisional glitch-electronica, part future-funk and part porno-pop, his music has been revised and sharpened to an intellectually refined point which is then ever so gently plunged deep into the brain of the listener and wiggled about. This is broken music for people with working minds and beneath the cold aggressive abstractions a warm human heart beats.

He has composed music for several films and art installations and currently resides in the UK.
