Chris Hughes was born in Melbourne, Australia, in 1968. He was a founding member of Once Upon A Time and also of Hugo Race & The True Spirit. Since arriving in Europe in 1989 he has played and recorded with Nina Hagen, Mick Harvey, Nikki Sudden, Ralf Goldkind, Rowland S. Howard, and many others.
His unique style of explosive yet well-anchored syncopations leaves its unmistakable mark on every project he is a part of. Hughes is currently working on his solo project Hughes Leisure Group, some tracks of which appear on the CD "Wet Dream" by Hugo Race & The True Spirit.
He was also a member of the Berlin-based Industrial-Ambient collective Snowcrash, and plays with the psychedelic garage band The Methylated Spirits.
