Colin Stringer was born in St. Ives but has come a long way since; all the way to Heamoor, via Huddersfield. After three successful shows at Gulval Mead, he moved up North to become a rock star in the all-Cornish, Anne Gwirder. Eighteen months and two unsuccessful shows later he moved back to Penzance and became a member of Jack Rabbit’s Party (this was another group, not a political faction). As a protest against the eighties, he put his guitar under the bed and left it there until 2006 when he formed The Venton Gimps. Ax was born.
