Giles has recorded and performed with a wide array of experimental and influential underground groups, including The Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Echo City, The Cutmen and Rip Rig + Panic.
“Grassy Noel is an anarchic poet who is a grandee of the spoken word scene. He combines to thrilling effect with Ape, an improv trio who play sax, percussion, stand-up double bass and found objects. Graham from the band was last seen playing double bass with a toilet seat. Extraordinary”. R.Purnell
