Carlo was hooked on the drums and percussion in 1970 at the age of 10, when his brother came home with Deep Purple in Rock and In the Court of the Crimson King under his arm. After 35 years of flimflamming around as an artist, master printer and school teacher he had, in the absence of a drum kit, become highly proficient at using just about anything as a percussive instrument.

Around 2004 during a chance conversation with Steve they discovered they were both musicians and the Möbius Strip project was born, resulting in two concept albums before Steve was recruited by The Darkside. Carlo going on to establish his reputation with Torbay based band Coverfire.

Carlo’s favourite bands are Deep Purple, Rush, Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Emerson Lake and Palmer, The Spin Doctors, and anything with a great drummer at the helm.

Favourite book is I Claudius and favourite film is Pulp Fiction. His favourite things are spending his time with family and hitting things with sticks and his favourite saying is “If it ain’t broke you didn’t hit it hard enough!”
