The second place I officially rented a room, a friend of other friends Darren had recently bought a house and wanted a lodger. We had lots of mutual friends and similar tastes in music, so it seemed like a more comfortable option than at K’s house. Darren and I often had a laugh, shared a love of Star Trek Voyager and Darren would sometimes rent videos of new episodes and we’d watch them together. Friday evenings were Robot Wars and out to Offbeat, Sunday mornings were hungover watching Lee and Herring. Friends often came over to watch weird movies I’d inflict on them, or to play PlayStation Driver and listen to Beachbuggy records. The band Chuck and record label Thee SPC were born and flourished around this time.
