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.

I've been absolutely hammering it in the studio lately, tracking @federalcharm's new album. I've got to start mixing the beast soon, but my studio assistant keeps telling me he is going to do it instead and that he'll do a better job.  He smells of fish and he sleeps a lot. #studio #recording #cat #tuxedo #rescuedcat
