Biography

Born on the 8th of July 1994 at the Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, his parents named him Angus, but on his birth certificate they changed his name from Angus to his middle name (Scott) because it was easier for them to say. Harwood attended three schools in West Yorkshire, namely Netherton Infant and Nursery School, South Crosland C of E Junior School and Moor End Technology College. In June 2006, he moved from Huddersfield to his second home on the Isle of Arran in Scotland, where he attended Arran High School until June 2011. He is currently studying for an HND in Administration at James Watt College, Kilwinning.

In 2009, after his house was extended, Harwood made his new bedroom (and a few other pieces of land) the Republic of Taigh a Bata. In August of that same year, he also founded Pipeland and Northwest Island, which were abandoned later owing to the 2010 Taigh a Bata Flood. On 18 September 2010, he was made a Knight Commander of the Austenasian Order by the then Emperor of Austenasia.

In 1999, Harwood was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, along with mild dyspraxia. He has also realised that he has some sort of eating disorder, mild insomnia and occasional bouts of depression.

Harwood became ordained by the Universal Life Church Monastery on the 4th of February 2012. His traditional micronational title is Sir Dr. Scott Aonghas Harwood, KCA, Grand Druid of Arran, with his full macronational title being Dr Scott Angus Harwood, Grand Druid of Arran. In May 2013, Harwood unoficially changed his middle name to 'Aonghas', which is pronounced the same as 'Angus'.

Current Members Scott Harwood

In July 2010, Harwood was given a Korg Kaossilator synthesizer for his 16th birthday. After a few months of learning, Harwood started producing albums on the Taigh a Bata created 'Shedpop' label. Harwood's early music is generally said to be a blend of Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream and Steve Reich, with later albums picking up more influences and developing into a unique style. Influences from the band Klopfzeichen are also present on some albums.

As of November 2011, Harwood also produces music under the name Domestic Television Genocide.

Whilst Harwood has "released" albums, they have been mainly jam sessions with little being regarded to commercialism.

Despite the fact that Taigh a Bata was abolished in March 2012, Harwood plans to continue releasing music on YouTube.
