Badly Drawn Boy Biography
Badly Drawn Boy is Damon Gough, born October 2, 1969 in Dunstable, Bedfordshire, although the family moved to Bolton, Lancashire before Gough reached the age of one. Gough chose his stage name from a character that appeared in the cartoon show “Sam and His Magic Ball” which he saw on TV at a party in Trafford, Manchester in 1995. Before he thought of using this name he made some ‘business cards’, each one unique, with a printed picture of a drawing by his nephew, and a small collage by Gough.
