chris chip barnes


Chris is the second-to-join founder member of Space Potatoes. He sings, writes, plays guitar and keyboards. Because he was there at the start and wrote their only #1 hit he is also hard to replace, despite the lawsuits. Chris lives up north, is a vegan and has more children than he has guitars.

ricky ginger spud howard


Ricky has been in the band since day one as drummer and until 2020 had never played on an album, recieved a royalty or had shares in the band he named. But he's been happy as long as he had a gig, his train set and could afford a daily kebab. Unfortunately due to the pandemic he's had to sell his trains and can only now afford 3 kebabs per week. He wants you to know he loves bumholes.

sean riley


Sean is best known for his work on YouTube channels computerphile, the racket and pots & trowels. He also produced the videos for the Ladbaby UK Christmas #1 videos 3 years in a row. He was commissioned to make a documentary about Space Potatoes' 2020 Rendezvous tour. Unfortunately after 3 shows it was postponed then cancelled due to the pandemic. He used the oppotunity to document the lows and lowers of a band off the road.

kieran payne


Kieran took over the management of Space Potatoes in 2011 after their previous management MCAM forgot to pay 5 years of VAT leaving the band almost bankrupt. He's known for his patience, size and his metaphors.

Trevor has toured with Space Potatoes as front of house sound engineer since their big hit in 2010. When he's not locked in his room you can find him at a hotel bar having a nap with a glass of wine. He is very very clean and allegedly has bag of tricks that he likes to use when alone. When George from Celebate records caught COVID-19, Trevor took over his job and became their 'boss'.

chris gadd

tour manager

Chris Gadd has worked for Space Potatoes for 13 years. The first 7 years of his carb packed career were spent holding ladders for bigger men, often standing in as the first rung in countries where they don't require a first rung by law. After some years he managed to grow a beard and looked old enough to take over the day to day tour management. When he's not out touring he spends his days trying to finish the Grimsby level on the milf finder app.

Kevin was Dave's guitar tech until he left Space Potatoes' crew mid 2020 to take a job as a warehouse assistant at his local Tescos. Every little helps.
