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: "We are done. Time to finish this flippin' studio!"

Back behind the orange noise machine today, in rehearsals on a session for a band called Divine Planet at @noiseboystudios.  Got strong black coffee, my @cosmicears for IEM duties (this is a click/track gig) and it feels good to be playing some full-beans rock again after some months of more gentle stuff.  Get me a leotard, some unnecessarily difficult platform shoes and a wig and I'll be your rockman.  #drums #Sonor #drumkit
