Clive Deamer

Clive Deamer is an independent session drummer, the backbone of two of the most influential British albums of the 90's, both winners of the Mercury music prize. Portishead's "Dummy" and Roni Size's "New Forms". He’s also collaborated extensively with Radiohead and toured the world with Portishead. A devotee of Jazz and R&B drummers like Earl Palmer, Art Blakey and Elvin Jones, his Jazz aesthetic is coloured by sudden outbursts of Rock aggression and tight but loose breakbeat feel. He is a member of the award winning quartet Get The Blessing, whose free approach informs all of his playing, and he is constantly in demand as a recording drummer, for his taste and discipline. In hairier days he played with Hawkwind at Amsterdams infamous Melkweg, recorded with Dr John, Jeff Beck and Tom Jones. More recently combining computer recording technology with old school spontaneity for the creation of the critically acclaimed Robert Plant album "Mighty Rearrangerâ€.
