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.

In #Barcelona today after Benicassim festival yesterday. Nice cinematic city scape near where we are parked. Lots of cobbled back streets and stairs to nowhere, plus small wiry dogs and people sat outside on their doorsteps having a smoke in the sun.

On to Musilac festival in France tonight.
