Timothy John Gane[1] (born 12 July 1964[2]) is an experimental-rock/pop English musician, formerly of Stereolab.[3][4]

Gane was born in Ilford, Essex, and began his musical career as a purveyor of harsh noise in the early 1980s under the alias Unkommuniti releasing self-financed cassettes on Black Dwarf Wreckordings along with fellow Unkommuniti members Kallous Boys and other noise projects.[4] Tim was a key member of McCarthy from 1985-1990.[4] Turn On, Gane's side project with occasional Stereolab contributor and member of The High Llamas, Sean O'Hagan, released their self-titled debut in 1997.

In 2013 he released Blood-Drums under the moniker Cavern Of Anti-Matter (band composed by Tim, Holger Zapf and Joe Dilworth).

In 2014, Gane compiled the tracks for Sky Records Kollektion 1, a collection of tracks from the German electronic-rock label, issued by Bureau B.

Personal life[edit]

Gane and Laetitia Sadier were romantically involved throughout most of Stereolab's duration but separated in 2004.
