Hello there. I’m Michael, or Spud.

The graceful tones of Santana and Bob Dylan were forced on me at a young age – I have my dad to thank for that. My exposure to music was furthered by my brother, who kindly pointed me in the direction of all things cool, like Nirvana, Billy Piper and Eternal. It wasn’t until the age of twelve, when I discovered Metallica, that I discarded the various bands that I was conditioned to listen to.

To cut a long story short, I now hold an MA in Ethnomusicology, as well as a BA Popular Music – both of which have somehow enabled me to write about music. I also have just over fifteen years of experience in playing with the drums. It always amazes me how I can sit behind a drum kit and never get bored – probably because I’m crap enough to always find something new to try.

Currently, I am part of a little postrock/visual three piece called <a href=”http://www.projectwicket.co.uk/”>Wicket</a>. I am thoroughly enjoying being part of the close knit family that is Echoes and Dust. One day, I hope to host some sort of festival that revolves around good music and food. Maybe all the bands could eat whilst playing. Get practising folks…

Live: 65daysofstatic + Nordic Giants – The Globe, Cardiff. 28th July, 2014

“I turned to my companion and suggested that Nordic Giants were so flipping fantastic I would hate to be the band following them. Perhaps it was my excitement at seeing them for the first time. Or perhaps I was still lost, dreaming and captivated – swallowed up and altogether enchanted.” Michael Nash

Interview: Ric from Tall Ships

“You know when there’s one band that just don’t release a song that you think, ‘Well gosh…that could be improved in so many ways.’ There’s not too many of those out there for me. However, I try and make the odd exception, Tall Ships being one.” – Michael Nash
