Patrick Le Pen has teamed up with Darrell Marc Bath and their talents have entwined in a veritable explosion of creative energy to produce SHARE THE INFORMATION electrifying rock with a message: STOP MESSING WITH MY MIND deeply personal and bluesy and MR SCREWDRIVER ..driving punk.

Patrick Le Pen has been making music for many years as a solo artist and with groups Friends of the Family and Jade. His writing and performance style spans the whole range of music genres rooted firmly in Rock, blues and soul. It is this energy and love of music that inspired him to form Kinky..s Ex to create exciting new musical collaborations and with Darrell Marc Bath has unleashed a tsunami of tracks.

"Born Croydon, December 24 '66, got first guitar from a Kenyan refugee and has music bug ever since. Joins local youth club groups, then gets into meeting punk rock musicians, this fortunate bit of luck enables Darrell to say goodbye to the menial jobs he has undertaken since leaving school. The most important of these bands is called U.K.Subs (..87-91 were my years, band still going). All the touring makes him a better player: Forms Crybabys (..91-96 were the years the 4 cds came out) Within this period Darrell records and tours with Dogs d'Amour. The later 90s saw D recording, writing and touring with Ian Hunter of the hugely respected Mott The Hoople group of the early 70s! Buoyed on by this, Darrell had the chance to record two cds of his own stuff: Sabrejet and Love and Hurt '00 and '01 respectively! Darrell looks forward to much creativity and success with Kinky's Ex!!!!!"
