Georgie Kimpton, a west London boy, was born in 1954. Though achieving good results at school, he largely wasted a fair few decades as an underground cartoonist, contributing to the likes of Oz, Nasty Tales, Cozmic Comics, IT and Time Out.
He now lives in south east London and is a happy divorcee.
In the early eighties, Georgie joined indie music distributor, Pinnacle Records and worked his way up to Managing Director. He routinely rubbed shoulders with the likes of television and music impresarios, Tony Wilson, Simon Cowell and Pete Waterman.
He played a leading role in the rise of artists as diverse as Kylie Minogue, New Order and Frank Zappa.
He later became boss of the iconic music company, Rough Trade.
Georgie still has many links to the music and television businesses but is concentrating on his writing.
