Bio

Craig Hansen & the Missendens began as a solo project by singer/songwriter/guitarist Craig Hansen - but soon enough it was obvious that the songs he had recorded at Camperdown's Trackdown Studios needed a kick ass band to bring the huge sound that had been forged on record to the live arena.

Thus a band of like minded musical brothers was assembled.

Adam Griffiths, who played bass on the recordings, was enlisted full time, as was his brother in-law Gerry Ford on rhythm guitar.

Japanese youtube drumming sensation Keigo Endo (aka detaramei) who flew from Tokyo to play drums on the original recording sessions guests on the drum stool when his schedule allows, and Alejo Alvarez, a brilliant drummer who has recently migrated to Sydney form his native Argentina is the permanent Australian based drummer.

Thanks spiralspiral for turning me on to this one. I could get lost for hours in these kinds of sounds. A seriously well produced/written track that creates it's own world. And the drums are insane!
