||MASH aka Dave Parnell : “Back2Front”
Master percussionist, master sound engineer, master navigator, drummer with ‘Rough Red’ and the ’twentysevens’ is a classic overachiever as far as drummers go and you’d think he’d be happy with that but no, that’s not enough for Mash. No longer for him the dark, haunted corridors of the back row staring at his band mates backsides. He actually wants to be seen and heard and to bathe in the adoring glow of the assembled multitudes...
But is the front row ready for this incursion by one of ‘them’? Are his strange little drummer fingers ready for the complexities of the guitar and the rigours of ‘guitar face’. Well as fate would have it the little bastard pulls it off with his usual aplomb as if he’s been there all his life (heaven forbid) perhaps even a little too easily as far as those of us who have struggled for a life time to write songs are concerned. I’ve always said that if the world ends tomorrow I’m going straight to Mashy’s place, he’d know what to do.
Come and see for yourself as he presents his debut CD ‘Back2Front’ joined by his long time bass playing mate John Barr and perhaps one or two special guest. After all drummers need all the help they can get. Don’t They?
