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: "@chloechendrie @AdeleIndo Well worth it, him and his band are great."

Was desperate to play drums after getting back from the USA tour, so I set this up in my office so I could lay down some beats in-between emails.  Flipping the snare over and playing the reso/snares side with hands and sticks is always tonnes of fun.  Need to make a video of it soon.

Off down to Wembley stadium tonight ready for Blossoms load in tomorrow morning (supporting Stone Roses) so I had to get a bit of noise in beforehand.
