Brendan Perry

I was born in Whitechapel, London in 1959 to Anglo-Irish parents and subsequently raised and schooled in the East End of London, until my family emigrated to Auckland, internal linkNew Zealand, seeking a new life and new opportunities.  Having received no prior formal musical education, I began to play the guitar under the guiding influence of internal linkMaori and Polynesian muscians at the catholic school I attended in Ponsonby. After half hearted attempts to become a primary school teacher and then join the civil service, I drifted through a series of jobs until I was asked to join The Scavengers in 1977. At first I played bass Guitar later taking on the duties of lead vocalist when the original singer left the band.  Apart from a handful of original songs we would cover music from the Stooges, New York Dolls, and the late 60's Psychedelia. After two years of entertaining controversy, unable to secure a recording deal or live dates (largely due to the media's sensationalist attitude towards internal linkpunk) We decided to move to  Melbourne, internal linkAustralia, in 1979 and changed our name to the Marching Girls. In internal link1980 I left the Marching Girls to pursue a more creative personal musical internal linkodyssey, experimenting with tape internal linkloops, synthesis and alternative forms of rhythm. In 1981 I formed Dead Can Dance with Simon Monroe and Paul Erikson (both of whom were to leave within the year soon after we had relocated to London) and of course Lisa Gerrard, who was to become my fellow navigator and soul musical companion for the next fifteen years. Today I live in Rural Ireland where I can be found indulging myself in mythological and natural interests such  as internal linkDragon Hunting.

we are the stars which sing
we sing with our internal linklight
we are the birds of fire
we internal linkfly over the sky
our light is a voice
we make a road for the spirits to pass over
for the spirits to pass over
we are like the wind
wrapped in luminous wings
we make a road for the spirits to pass over
for the spirits to pass over
