"Rohan Heath had learned classical piano as a child, going electric in time to perform with the latter two outfits. He had decided on music after abandoning a PhD at Vermont University. After a tour of Japan supporting the Happy Mondays, he left A Guy Called Gerald to release Hardcore Uproar as Together, which made number 12 in the UK charts in August 1990. After a brief stint with Eek A Mouse, he elected to concentrate on solo work, and inaugurated Urban Cookie Collective."

MIKAEL WIEHE (S) Roskilde Festival On the record "Black Secret Technology" the Manchester wonder-boy Gerald Simpson - alias A Guy Called Gerald - bends and stretches voices, beats and bass lines out into time and space. The album, which can best be described as a hybrid of techno and jungle for the feet and brain has been called the best record of the year in sections of the UK music press. It rises above other jungle-like efforts because of its pioneering originality. The speeded-up breakbeats and sounds really are "in tune" with each other - they have almost the same function as African talking drums. A Guy Called Gerald released the pioneering 1988 minimalistic, acid house album "Hot Lemonade" and later "Automanikk" in 1990. He played an excellent set at Roskilde Festival 1990 - in his acid house days.
