Musical indiscretions

I've been playing drums and percussion since childhood and in many rock, jazz and folk bands in the decades since. Between 1994 and 2008 I performed many times with Huddersfield's alt.folk band Bar the Shouting in halls, pubs and festivals throughout Britain, often supporting various environmental, peace or social justice campaigns.  Since then I've drummed on a number of albums and annoyed people singing my own songs at open mic nights in the Huddersfield area.
