Title: Mike Clattenburg playing drums
Post by: Ghostdog on Feb 06, 2006, 09:35 PM
Found this article from Chart magazine , it is talking about Mike O'Neill, who played in one of my fave Canadian bands The Inbreds.

Next, there's Mike O'Neill, who seemingly dropped off the face of the planet a couple of years ago. While he's popped up every once in a while (in Sarah Harmer's backing band, at last year's Inbreds reunion and behind the scenes recording sound with the Trailer Park Boys), we haven't really heard much from him in years.

However, that's all about to change. His new band, The Self Conscious, are in the midst of preparing for their live debut for March, when they'll perform alongside The Super Friendz. TSC sees O'Neill return to the two-man band format, with himself on guitar and vocals and Trailer Park Boys director/producer/writer Mike Clattenburg (formerly of Spawning Grunions) on drums.

"The Inbreds taught me that it was possible to play with only two," says O'Neill. "There's no-one I'd rather play with than Mike at the moment.

"Plus his name is also Mike. That was a big factor. Writing for duos keeps things simple in the very best way. I've missed that."

As for why he's been out of the limelight, O'Neill admits that his musical career as of late has been "slow to non-existent." However, he says that he's enjoying life in a band again, so who knows what the future will bring.

"I'm too hard on myself," says O'Neil. "I stopped playing live because I thought the shows were a disappointment.

"Your career is over if you refuse to play live shows. I'm getting over it. I'd love to tour. Mike makes me laugh a lot. We'll have to see what happens."

Kind of makes you think about the "band stories" that were told around the set. I know, when I get together with a road musician, we trade road stories. We would see who had the worst  hotel room/gig/bus story/most fucked up gig/sluttiest moments etc.
I would like to sit down with Mike Smith and exchange stories. I bet we have a few in common.
