Buzzcocks Drummer Danny Farrant joins Tee Drums
Tee Drums are very pleased to announce that Buzzcocks drummer Danny Farrant has joined us an endorsee and kicked off the UK tour with his new 14x7 snare drum.
Buzzcocks have just finished a three week headline tour of the USA which included three dates on the Riot fest. On returning to the UK the band are now into the third week of a UK tour to promote their new album “The Way” Produced by Dave Allen (the cure, Human League) which is soon to be on release on 1,2,3,4, go records.
Danny says… I'm so happy to be smashing my new snare made by Alan Tocknell of Tee Drums. After meeting Alan and using his own personal snare to headline Lakefest in the summer, it was inevitable I would ask him to build one for myself but in a fantastic White Marine Pearl. The drum looks and sounds amazing and most importantly, is standing up a proper whacking that only a punk rock tun thumper could give. Watch this space for news of a collaboration on the build of a whole kit that will see Danny's dream of playing a beautiful White Marine Pearl finished kit onstage with the Buzzcocks. If you wanna see Danny putting his new Tee Drum Snare through it's paces then check out the website http://www.buzzcocks.com/site/livedates.html for the final three shows this week.
The first single of the new Buzzcocks album 'It's Not You' is released this week and has been co written by Danny and Pete Shelley…Keep 'em peeled here for a link to the imminent video release...
As well as being the high energy drummer for the buzzcocks, Danny is also a session drummer working on many projects at the moment including recording for bands and TV including a very exciting project starting today that we will release more info on in time.
Danny’s snare is a 14x7 Birch/Mahogany with a vintage white marine pearl finish.
