The Absurdist by Richard Searle.
Born in South East London, England, during the swinging sixties, Richard had always wanted to become a cartoonist when he grew up. His ambition to publish a coffee table book of existential drawings never realized, instead fate dictated that he should become a professional musician.
The former bass player and co-founder of Acid Jazz band Corduroy, recorded five successful studio albums during the nineteen-nineties and travelled the globe many times over.
Previously, Richard spent five weeks at ‘number one’, in the British and International pop charts with the record ‘Spirit in The Sky’, in the comedy psych-punk garage-glam band Doctor and The Medics, touring heavily throughout the nineteen-eighties and surviving much rock mischief.
He finally retired from the stage in the year two thousand, other than the odd cameo session-man appearance, considering himself lucky to withdraw with his sanity and hair still intact.
Believed to be a member of the mysterious Bohemian Underground Movement, Richard still releases music under various guises and is now writing (and drawing) books.
The Absurdist is a light hearted, science-fictional tale about the illusionary nature of reality, lethal cocktails, hairy heroes, unrequited love and wasp hammers. Rude and irreverent, this funny philosophical caper, about two young scam-artists caught up in unusual events, features the prettiest of girls, silliest of toys, quantum physics and giant space propellers in an adventure of absurd proportions.
