Glenn Richards (born 17 November 1972) is an Australian songwriter, known primarily for his work in the band Augie March. He is known for flagrantly disregarding rhythm and metre in his lyrics, reflecting his ongoing struggle to marry free verse and rock and roll.

Early years

Richards was born in Shepparton, Victoria. Not much is known about his childhood, but Glenn claims most of it was spent in fiery intellectual debate with his younger brother Steven, who now runs a two-star Italian restaurant in Northcote. Rumours persist of his involvement in the notorious extortion gang, The Baby Snitchers, for which he supposedly spent three years in juvenile detention . Although its legitimacy is dubious, there does exist a comment attributed to him concerning his days in prison:"It was there that I first began reading poetry. Initially, it was a defence mechanism. If the other kids found out you didn't know your Milton from your Wordsworth, you'd be dead by the end of the week. But gradually I began to appreciate the efforts of these famous poets, and before I knew it, I had 'Juggernaut Boy' scrawled in excrement on my cell wall. It wasn't pretty, but by God was it diverting. After that, it was only a matter of time before the BMG talent-scouts in the next cell discovered my work and offered me a twelve-cigarette deal on the spot."Upon release from detention, Richards saved up enough money to buy his first guitar by working long hours on the docks in Fremantle, Western Australiamarker. This demanding work earned him the barrel chest and tendency to brawl that continue into later life.

With Augie March

Richards joined Augie March in August 1995, playing his first gig with them five years later. The occasion was the backyard wedding of his elder sister Clementia.

To date they have released two EPs and three mini-LPs, while Richards has released one solo EP. Richards has released one additional solo EP as G.A. Richards and the Dark Satanic Mills Bros.

Personal life

Richards currently lives in Adelaidemarker with his two daughters, Peta and Sally. His dislikes include cats, photos of people's cats and all versions of reality in which cats exist.
