I, Ludicrous is an English pop music trio, formed in 1985 by John Procter (born 1957) and David Rippingale ("Will Hung") (b. 1956).[1] Their debut flexi release ("Preposterous Tales") reached Number 11 in John Peel's Festive Fifty in 1987.[2]

I, Ludicrous are still producing music today, and play occasional live dates, primarily in London. In January 2008 Martin Brett from Voice of the Beehive joined the band on bass guitar.
