All Music Guide:
Portsmouth, U.K., resident Christopher Reeves is the man behind the eerie electronica of the Gasman. A teenage fan of breakbeat rave music, early Aphex Twin, and the output of the Rephlex label, Reeves' own music is built from reel-to-reel tapes of classical music run through a laptop computer. In 2003, Planet Mu issued the Gasman's debut, Remedial, an album containing tracks selected by label head Mike Paradinas from three demo CDs. A cover version of Nirvana's "Imodium" appeared on Planet Mu's promo compilation Children of Planet Mu.
