Hugo Race is somewhat of a musical polymath, born into a musical family he’s since been making a living recording and playing music live for an appreciative coterie of fans around the world.
He formed Dum Dum Fit in 1978 as lead vocalist and guitarist with Robin Casinader on keyboards, two years later they formed Plays With Marionettes with Edward Clayton-Jones and Nick Seymour.
In 1983 Hugo Race joined Nick Cave in his new band Nick Cave: Man or Myth? a year later renamed The Bad Seeds, issuing their debut album From Her To Eternity. Later that year Race left to form his own band The Wreckery and record 4 albums in as many years.
He went on to collaborate in numerous combinations in Europe and Australia recording for Rampant,Glitterhouse,Spooky Records and his own production company Helixed.
Complimenting a rich career in music Hugo Race has taken on acting roles in films such as Ghosts Of The Civil Dead,Dogs In Space, & Queen Of The Damned.
