Poteat Auto-Bio: "Old...bald....chunky. Major label burnout....Gnawing on the bone Big E threw my way. Four string father...Bass & a baby....I love both, but wish I was better at them. Far from hip...Quiero Deep Purple. Music is the only "industry" I've ever worked in...God help me. Can I have a beer now?"


I was originally found in an old LP crate floating off the coast of the Land of 1,000 Dances. Subsequently rescued by the Count Hugh duG u reau, I was trained in the black arts of the vinyl junkie. Thus armed I have been forced to scratch out a meager existence in various record emporiums across this continent. Occasionally forced to whore out my body to the highest indie or major label bidder to survive, performing unspeakable acts of marketing, I have finally found a safe refuge in the friendly confines of Criminal Records.
