This is my friend Shri Sriram from India… we first met way back in 1993 in The Jazz Bistro in London where I was part of the house band during the Friday night musicians jam… got to meet a lot of amazing musicians whilst playing there but Shri was definitely the most unique… we had some unbelievable jams there and a friendship started that has already lasted almost 20 years! He was bad ass back then and is bad asssssss now… he started out as a tabla player and after years of playing decided he wanted to learn bass…. so he carved up his own bass (see picture below) – ripped out all the frets and taught himself to play… what makes his playing SO unique is the way he incorporates his tabla abilities INTO his bass playing… here’s another track from the album “Drum The Bass” that I also played on back in the 90’s …

This is the first episode of my mini Boredoms Experience documentary… I explain how I got the gig, the unique way I had to prepare for the rehearsals and my fears of doing my first show since my kidney transplant… enjoy!
Here is a performance of my friend Dodo NKishi performing with Mouse On Mars.
This is the video Dodo sent to me to see if I would be up for doing the show and also the first performance I had ever seen of The Boredoms.
This is the Dave Grohl / Amoeba video where Dave mentions the Boredoms….
This is the video of the Boredoms performing BOAdrum in Brooklyn NYC with 77(!!!) drummers on the 7/7/2007.
Here you can see one of the American Boredoms drummers Jeremy rehearsing SCHOOL at an earlier show.
