Percy Howard is a singer and a song writer who over the years
has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the music
world. The project named Meridiem was formed in 1997 when
Percy invited Bill Laswell to work with him along with drummer
Charles Hayward who had previously been a member of This
Heat. Bill Laswell of course has worked with many artists
including, Daevid Allen and New York Gong, Herbie Hancock
and perhaps most famously Brian Eno and David Byrne on
their album My Life In The Bush of Ghosts.
The album A Pleasant Fiction was originally released in 2004
and includes contributions from Living Color guitarist Vernon
Reid and former Guns n Roses guitarist Buckethead. The
album has a broad base of influences and due to the influences
brought to bear by Founder members Laswell and Howard the
album makes for an eclectic listening experience.
