The drummer and percussionist for the New York based Alternative band Yeah Yeah Yeahs, who originally started playing Garage Punk songs but drifted into the Alternative Dance scene. Some people may refer to him as "That other guy from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs" since he's not as well known as Karen or Nick, but he's an excellent drummer and deserves more credit. Apart from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs he has played or collaborated with various musicians rangeing from Oakley Hall to Mary Halvorson to The Seconds. He is a vegitarian, and also has a rare condition known as Synaesthesia, which allows him to see colours through music. He grew up in Long Island, New York and now lives in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, New York. He was once named the 50th best drummer of all time by Gigwise.
A british band from Cheshunt, England formed in 1999. They started out as more of a Mod-Beat band, then turned into a Post-punk revival band, got some attention when they toured with The Horrors, then became a Zombie Garage band. Their new album X. Enc is awesome and I recommend it to anyone who likes simular bands, or obscure Indie bands.
"If Neils Children never formed, The Horrors would never exist... or atleast be the same band."
"Neils Children (also refered to as NEiLS CHiLDREN) were the first Zombie Garage band, or as some people call it The New Thing... they were a huge influence on a lot of the bands as well, like Electricity in Our Homes and S.C.U.M"
