Daniel Figgis

From: Dublin





Daniel Figgis (AKA Binttii AKA Haa Lacka Binttii) is a musician from Dublin. His first band was Normal Service Will Be Resumed As Soon As Possible, reputedly a punk-meets-Rick Wakeman proposition, a school band active during 1978-79. He then joined the Virgin Prunes and appeared on their first two singles, released in 1981.

After being kicked out of the Prunes he formed Princess Tinymeat who were active for several years in the mid-80s (1984-87) and who gained a degree of notoriety equalling that of his previous band. After Princess Tinymeat split, Binttii reverted to his real name. In a Hot Press feature in February 1989 he mentions following training and workshops at the Contemporary Music Centre (with Roger Doyle) and new pieces he'd composed with titles like "Hungry For Love", "Untying the Love Knot" and "Track No.3". In 1994 he released the acclaimed "Skipper" album.

Binttii also did production work for bands like The Threat and The Gorehounds.
