The Drum Tamer - Purveyor of beats

Hello!  I'm John.  I'm a drummer & musician from Manchester (UK) and I love to get involved in all sorts of projects.  

I've played with prog, folk, funk, pop, rock, blues, electronica, math-rock, country and disco bands over the years so I'm always looking for a new challenge. 

Get in touch if you'd like to talk to me about playing on a record or coming to jam with you live.  I also do drum teching and recording/mixing/mastering.

@TheDrumTamer: "@Dan_Zambas Hah, they are fiddly little bastards. Some of my switches started working again after some switch cleaner and a good pummelling."

#Berlin tonight on the Kooks support tour for the Blossoms boys.  Cool venue, sweaty set up, steamy show.  Out in Europe for a couple of weeks on this tour then to America again as soon as this is done.
