Richard Hemming MW, Skin Côntact’s keyboard player and organizer, said “I can’t quite believe this is happening. Again. We’ve already got some fantastic wine trade personalities lined up to sing, and I’m stupidly excited about performing at the Islington Academy.
I shan’t be throwing my vocal talents into the ring… I know! Why I hear you cry? I’m a drummer. I know my place in the musical scheme of things.
