Read more on the man below!!
Thanks to Stuart and Darren (Chelsea Boy) Bennett for the info....
Stuart Deabill is a West London born disciple of the holy trinity of music, football and clobber. Having walked out of Ealing Green High School without an exam to his name he knew all he needed was the lyrics of Weller, the West Stand of Stamford Bridge and the clothes of Stuarts in West London to see him through his formative years. He started a band but soon got booted out for being shit, started DJing which he was slightly better at but still managed to occasionally clear dancefloors at the drop of a needle and held down a number of jobs including fruit and veg packing to postman, through to various delivery driver jobs.
Never one to let the grass grow, he followed Chelsea home and abroad, saw every band worth their salt from The Smiths to The Arctic Monkeys and kept the faith with the Weller through thick and thin (apart from the late 80’s where he swopped allegiance to The Soup Dragons who he thought was going to be as big as The Beatles).
Stuart is currently co -writing his third book Supersonic – Personal Situations With Oasis with Ian Snowball for September 2013 release and follows in the wake of the successful Thick As Thieves – Personal Situations With The Jam.
Also due out this year is Deabill & Snowball’s ‘ From Ronnie’s To Ravers – 50 years of London Clubland ‘ about the importance and diversity of the Capital’s clubs over the years.
Stuart hosts a sporadic popular club night called Away From The Numbers in which Gary Crowley has called “the best adult youth club he’s ever been to “ still DJ’s for friends , family and wrong un’s and manages the fast rising Watford trio The Spitfires and is generally to be found ranting on Facebook.
