It was a very cold, but sunny day in Surrey – Southern England, we pulling up outside Darrin’s house in a nice part of the suburbs of London. Two cups of tea later, we pinned Darrin down to talk about his career to date and the some what strange way in which he joined Primal Scream.

Darrin started playing at the age of 12 at school. His first teacher was Dave Clifford who was a tough, very large ex army man who suffered no fools and no excuses. Throughout his school years Darrin studied with Dave and played in various school bands and orchestras playing both drums and percussion. These early years were very important in Darrin’s musical journey because Dave had a magical way of breaking down problems and explaining notation and phrasing.

In 1997 Darrin joined Primal Scream. He also played with Babylon Zoo, China Black, Matt Bianco, The Ragga Twins, Bonnie Tyler, Martin Barre and later Gary Moore.
