This is the site of Hamish Stuart, the drummer based in Sydney, Australia.
Playing and recording around these parts for well over forty years with quite a few prominent and not so prominent performers.
currently working on a permeant basis .... ( as permanent as this funny ol business can be )
Well Covid certainly put a hole in proceedings over the last 2 years.
I did however manage to do a little practice and I think ... possibly perfected the home made soufflé !!
In the brief breaks from Covid
We ( This World ) a band made up of Mike Nock ,myself Julian Wilson and Jonathan Zwartz made a recording for ABC and one for ourselves just released called Another Dance
We also managed to get some regional touring in with the band as well.
February 2022 things took off again .
Starting with the final leg of the "Sticky Fingers" 50 ( now 51year anniversary ) Shows round the country with a great band playing some of my most favourite rock music ... Stars out front were Tim Rogers, Adalita , tex Perkins and Phil Jamison.... great band and we had a ball.
Straight after that was a wonderful couple of weeks with Don Walker and the Suave Fucks with special guests Jeff Lang and the Harmonettes . Rehearsals , recording and a few mighty live gigs..
Next up a small tour with the catholics ... a great band led by Lloyd Swanton ( the Necks ) We had a great time and nice to be back in front of enthusiastic audiences again ... not to mention driving around the beautiful countryside .
Back into the studio with Don Walker again for 3 days
finally the tour with This World I mentioned earlier ....
Wow !! after sitting on the couch for a wile .... that was all pretty full on .
