enfant bastard

“lo-fi genius” The Skinny Enfant Bastard is Cameron Watt. The authentic enfant terrible of the edinburgh music scene for the past three years. Alternately noisemonger, slacker-folk maverick, and more recently 8-bit circuit bending wizard, Enfant Bastard is a strange, many-headed beast. Cameron Watt’s irrepressible creativity to date has resulted in numerous cdr albums and mini-albums, each hand designed and manufactured in his one-man studio, Pigsty Tapes, most often to be discovered posted through letterboxes in the dead of night or thrown into the crowd after shows.
