Recently described by BBC Radio Scotlands most eloquent broadcaster Tom Morton as "scots musical legend Harry Macari", one of the founder members of and formerly with Aberdeen psychedelic jazz outfit HotLips, synth player and keyboardist with would be Ellon funking superstars Worser Than Louis, Chris Hance first came up with the name Data Thieves for the band back in the early nineties, when insider dealing at the stock exchange earned the distinctive phrase, and rightly appeared an appropriate misnomer for those involved in sampling and beat cutting in the brave new post second summer of love synth era.
Although during the nineties a few demos were released under the name Data Thieves, Chris continued to release work under the name Pumpkinman, Beat Freex, Mandrax Babies, and Gator Swamp Terrorists, as well as playing regular gigs with alt country band Subtle Impact, and Aberlour band Angels Dram.
A guest appearance in Infinite TV with Rod Gibbs of Malfunction at Aberdeens East Neuk bar in the mid nineties was an incentive for Chris to be drawn back toward a larger audience than the highland league football social club gig circut:)
On leaving the highland croft where he had enjoyed idyllic retreat in the mid nineties for the bright lights of civilization down on the coast, Chris enjoyed success with the Aberdeen band Halcion Daze including television appearances and recordings made at World Sound teaching studio.
After a short hiatus, Chris then went on to play several engagements(raves and gigs) under the name Data Thieves, and started releasing work online.
Achieving record download numbers for a scots artist Data Thieves went on to be one of the most successful online scots artists at the time, attaining over 53000 downloads in two years on MP3.com.
A fairly reasonable total for a scots underground artist.
In between ones and zeros, Chris was also drafted in to play synth with alt indie stars The Famous Prostitute which featured Mark Rowson. and later with some recording projects involving top scots female bassist Seana Carroll with duo Riverbend.
Chris has also recently released an ambient, chamber and orchestral album, "Aberdeen Ambient Artist - Aspire"

Happy Listening

Sure i seen the Data thieves somewhere in Aberdeen. I was at college in Aberdeen in the 90,s played bass for a band from Aberdeen. I was always at Cafe Drummonds on a Thursday sometimes Tuesdays if the band was any good. Amazing time because everyone was dumping there vinyl for cds. The record shops were crammed with cheap vinyl. Fopp was my fav
