Kevin Weatherill and Erica are friends and collaborators from his days living in Wales when Erica and band mate Miles Hunt were neighbours. Erica and Miles are both members of the seminal UK band The Wonder Stuff. Erica also played violin on Big World for a Little Man album by Kevin’s alter ego Dirty Ray.
