DASTARDS – The Future

Monday, April 6th, 2009

The Future – it’s the name of the track that Wake is currently working on – plus it’s also something on our minds as we contemplate what the next stage of the Dastardly ‘Plan’ is.

The band is currently ‘drummer-less’. The band can continue to perform as a trio – and judging by the response at the last gig in London, the band are just as popular without drums. But some of the tacks – e.g. Staying Out – have drums as a central part of the track.

 So – do we look for another drummer to be a band member? Or do we say the band is a trio (like Busted!) and employ a session drummer for each live gig?

 What do you think?
