Peter Miller studied music in Nottingham under, among others, Michael Nyman. He published a thesis on ‘The Humouristic Music of Erik Satie’, one of his musical heroes. A brief career as a music teacher ended in the early 80’s, when he formed the comedy double-act the Brighton Bottle Orchestra, which quickly became a permanent fixture on the burgeoning ‘alternative comedy’ circuit; the support acts on their final gig were Steve Coogan and Lee Evans. Peter also made several solo TV appearances demonstrating unusual items as musical instruments and was an original member of Stomp, the internationally acclaimed percussion extravaganza.
