Pure elegance. Melancholy. Bleakness for Bitterness. Lonesomes' midnight romance. Minimalist percussions, bare bass lines, winds, spare guitars, male lead vocals, female backing vocals.

Drummer for Robert Smith's The Cure ( Japanese Whispers, The Top, and Concert in addition to the singles Love Cats and The Caterpillar.) and The Glove, - just to cite a few: truly an inspiration for his metronomic drum style.
