Very sad. Apparently he'd never realised he was colour blind.
to see if DarwinDude's post appears
He's had his head kickked in!
Our Tom Vek!
studied law. He works as a trainee solicitor in Slough I believe.
and is recording music/having a really long wank
I mean clearly there was a young session musician who was portrayed as Tom Vek within the music press and did the live shows but he never actually recorded any of the music.
The album was recorded by a reasonably well known British actor from a leading (and actually pretty mainstream) BBC1 sitcom of the early 2000s. The label were worried that his music wouldn't be taken seriously due to the fact he was already well known from a commercially successful but criticially disliked sitcom so found a musician to play the songs live and invented all the news stories re the media scramble etc.
and looked like him...and made songs like him....and sounded kinda american...and had dust brothers esque production...and had nonsense lyrics...etc
and is now breeding dogs for a living
"Contrary to rumours that have been circulating, Tom Vek is still working on the follow up to his debut album 'We Have Sound'. When there is news of forthcoming releases, tours, etc. you will hear it here and on tomvek.tv first.
