Patrik Fitzgerald was born in East London in 19/3/1956, of working-class Irish immigrant parents. He started recording and performing with the uprising of the punk movement of 1977, after working briefly as an actor. He was a regular punk singles buyer at Small Wonder records shop and when Small Wonder launched a record label Patrik was one of the first to submit a demo - and did get a deal. His style was unique, some kind of acoustic-folk-punk and Patrik was more a poetry than musician - but he sure did get feeling to his songs. In October 1978 he was signed to Polydor. In 1982 Fitzgerald soured widely around Europe's altern ative club circuit and recorded some not-so-well-selling LP.
