Malcolm Pryce


UK flag (b.1960)

Born in Shrewsbury, in 1960, Malcolm Pryce went to live in Aberystwyth at the age of nine, where he stayed until his A-levels, doing all the usual adolescent rites of passage stuff along the way. He took a gap year in the days before it was called 'gap', hitchhiked down to Munich and got a job washing dishes at the hotel on the railway station. Leaving shortly thereafter he took work at the BMW factory working a whole year on the production line. In 1980, he headed off to read German at Warwick University, took a Third year out in Freiburg University, Germany and graduated with a First.
