Tony Gage was a founder member of Gloucester's legendary Ha Ha The Electroate in 1983 (they became Grenade in 1985). He joined Radioactive Sparrow (who had been major HHTL/Grenade fans) in time to replace departing Brooce Boyes for a gig at Newport's TJ's in June 1988. The band had reached

In time, Kakutopia hopes to make all his solo albums available. Since his first album, 4-Track Recordings (1988), Gage has continued to produce a steady stream of idiosyncratic albums, usually comprising songs characterised by acute perception. In 2006 he grazed the fringes of mainstream pop stardom with Tall Pony's 'I'm Your Boyfriend Now,' a classic slice of Gage songwriting in the key of bitter sharp.
