A rather pleasantly relaxing Thing of The Day today, for London’s QUADRILLES have a new track and a video and a rather magnificently unpleasant drum god as well
“Then check out our Bandcamp to download the track for free. That’s all for now. We’re writing some new tracks and have some exciting gigs planned at the Sebright Arms but we’ll mail you about that nearer the time. Also thanks to everyone that turned out for our mini-tour over March & April. We had an awesome time and can’t wait to do it again.
And here’s some previous QUADRILLES
MEANWHILE, not the nicest man I’ve ever met..
Beware of Mr Baker – in cinemas and Curzon on Demand 17 May
Ginger Baker is known for playing in Cream and Blind Faith, but the world’s greatest drummer didn’t hit his stride until 1972, when he arrived in Nigeria and discovered Fela Kuti’s Afrobeat. After leaving Nigeria, Ginger returned to his pattern of drug-induced self-destruction, eventually settling in South Africa, where the 73-year-old lives with his young bride and 39 polo ponies. This documentary includes interviews with Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Carlos Santana and more. Beware of Mr. Baker! With every smash of the drum is a man smashing through life, and smashing the filmmaker’s nose on the last day of filming.
