North-West Zeitgeist is the solo project of songwriter and poetronic artist Rick Irregular. In his first band Irregular had an XFM Radio John Kennedy X-Posure (Radio X) big one, featured on Radio One, Sky Sports and ITV television. The Evening News described him as Manchester's finest kitchen sink poet. Irregular is often described as dark, quirky, off-kilter and slightly paranoid. Irregular has imaginative, simultaneously flippant and succinct lyrics, unashamed hooks and a striking vocal sound very much of his own.
