Playing in "assorted goth shite industrial and metal" bands since his late teens, Uberman (Richard) is perhaps best known in his former self described role as "ringmaster of the Killing Miranda flying circus". As vocalist, programmer, songwriter and jack of all trades in KM, the band went from a legendary debut at the Slimelight to appearances worldwide supporting such lumonaries as Paradise Lost, The damned and Mortiis. Along the way releasing three successfull albums, before imploding due to musical differances in 2007.
Multi faceted, unpredictable, dour, spiteful and philosophical by turn, Richard is one of the UK scenes most enigmatic and controversial figures. And thats putting it mildly.
A musical chameleon who at times has been a riff-it-up guitarist (possessed of one of the most ludicrously coloured guitars in the history of music), demented frontman, floor filling electro DJ, brilliant programmer,
arrogant pig and above all, a songwriter, the mantle of Uberman comes as part of his most personal and ambitious project yet.
