Keith Tenniswood started out making electronic music as half of Two Lone Swordsmen, the production outfit he formed with Andrew Weatherall in 1995. Signed to Warp, they went on to release seven albums and countless EPs. “I started off in the traditional sense in the studio – making the tea and skinning up for two years, then getting in the studio on down time and learning," recalls Tenniswood, about the experiences leading to the launch of his solo career making Detroit meets London electro as Radioactive Man. To date he has released four albums on Weatherall’s Rotters Golf Club label Wang Trax, as well as his own label Control Tower, which he co­ran with Dexorcist between 1999–2005.
