I am very pleased to announce that I will be drum teching for Foals this year on their forthcoming ‘Holy Fire’ album campaign. Promo for the release starts tomorrow in Berlin, and around Europe until the UK / European leg of the tour begins on February 28th until the end of March. I may even be playing a spot of percussion, triangles and tambourines at the ready!
Here is their brand new video ‘My Number’ TUNE!
Firstly I have just got back from a week long tour around the UK with Mechanical Bride, we began in Brighton at the Komedia, and took in the sights of London, Oxford, Cardiff, Bath, Cambridge and Cheltenham. The Highlight of the tour would be our support band in Cambridge, Bathing Blonds, check out their music they are a very talented bunch and one to look out for, and the lowlight would be getting stranded in Cambridge due to the van needing a well earned holiday..
I also had the huge privilege of meeting Philip Selway from Radiohead at our show in Oxford at the Jericho Tavern, where 20 years ago they were first spotted and signed up. We had a lovely in depth chat, and he remarked on how interesting and accomplished my drumming was, which obviously was a huge compliment from one of my biggest musical influences, Thank you Philip!
Here is the Philip in action with new Radiohead member Clive Dreamer on double drums duty..
Also I my C&C snare drum is finished…
