The musical world in which the Fish Police exist has been created by and informed by singer Dean Rodney and guitarist Matt Howe’s autism, and the way they see the world. Dean pictures the world as if it were a TV show, he takes things he observes in his own life and twists them into unique creations.” – The Guardian
