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.

Just finished the second 'Write, Record and Finish a song in a day' session with @eskimotionjameskelly and I ended up with a pretty weird kit setup for this one. Tiny trashy 9" hihat, snare with a crop circle jingle ring on, 2 rides, a stack for a crash and an upturned drum head on top of my floor tom.
