The Bob Lazar Story is the musical brainchild of Matt Deacon. Matt was born and raised in Liverpool, UK.
Matt happened across an acoustic guitar in 1982 and played the shit out of it until he became perfectly mediocre.
A few years later he had to decide between two possible futures :


1. A life of potential musical obscurity.
2. Becoming a top, top football legend.


Luckily for you, he opted for number 1. After playing lead guitar for seminal Liverpool band Cosmic Donut, Matt attended Community College from 1993-1996 where he studied Music Theory and Karate. In 1998, after growing disillusioned with the Karate scene in the UK, Matt travelled to New Zealand, where he now resides. Matt taught guitar for several years before giving it up to become, frankly, one of the best Posties in the southern hemisphere.


As Music Technology became more affordable, Matt started recording tunes, culminating in his first release in 2004.
This eponymous debut was OK, but things improved greatly when he changed his musical name from Matt Deacon to




2006 brought the magical first proper album, titled "(sic)". This was critically acclaimed by at least three people.

In 2007 The Silence of Perez de Cuellar EP was released to even more acclaim.

Matt then embarked upon the crazy 4 year journey that included one year of taxi driving back in Liverpool
but ended with the release of Space Roots in mid 2012.

Space Roots was the cathartic scream of a man who had epic computer issues spread over multiple hard drives.

It was also the first collaboration between Matt and his erstwhile rhythmical genius: Chris Jago.

2014 saw the release of Ghost Of Foodstool, a fifteen minute epic that spawned popular hits such as

Threadkiller and Funniest Cat Video Ever II. It was also the first release where Chris played on all tracks,

leading to a more cohesive sound across all songs.


2015 saw the release of  Self-Loathing Joe, a twenty minute ride into the heart of The Bob Lazar Story.

2016 saw an intense period of writing, culminating in the release of Baritonia in April 2017, through Bad Elephant Music.

2017 has been a busy year so far, with many tunes written for a future release, perhaps in 2018. Watch this space, Lazarites.
