Dunno if many of you will have herd of him, but Chris Wee is the drummer for Northern Irish post-rock band And So I Watch You From Afar. These guys having been touring Europe for the last two years and I was lucky enough to see them play in small enough pub last summer... it was immense, probably the best live gig I've ever seen.
As a drummer he's got a very strange style, plays open handed and mixes extremely fast beats with all sorts of rudiment based rolls in the heavy parts to a very precise jazz style in the quiter ones. He also keeps the beat on crash cymbals an awful lot but always to great effect.
One to watch I reckon!
Re: Chris Wee
Will bump this as I know this band but I've only heard a few songs.
Chris Wee is a really good new drummer, hard hitting, thrashy, very explosive fast style when needed in parts.
Good band to check out, a heavy post-rock sound.
