Shane worked for Ninja Tune from 1995 to 1999. His main job was tea boy, but he also ran their first club, the legendary Stealth, at London’s Blue Note. His invented language Ninjaspeak played a part in the label’s branding and rise to success. His wordplay featured on many label products, including press releases, album covers for Coldcut, Funki Porcini and various Ninja Tune compilations, and the legendary Ninjaskinz (pictured below). Ever since he left (to go find himself in India) he’s been desperately imploring them to re-employ him, but frankly, they are not interested.
