From the Free Music Archive website: 

Drummer/composer Kid Millions (Oneida) stops by WFMU with Man Forever, his rotating, outer-limits drum project, exploring the phasing and overtones of repetitive patterns, drum rolls and layers of percussive pounding.This set’s version of Man Forever will include Brian Chase (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and the addition of a guitar and Farfisa player.


[Visually Sound Sunday: Being Man Forever]

Man Forever, the solo project of Oneida drummer John Colpitts aka Kid Million, will stage a performance in Buffalo this Friday at the Polish Library.

This will not be a run-of-the-mill show, but rather a sound experience achieved through a collaborative drum performance.  Check the video of Colpitts explaining the concept and giving a run down of what to expect.

Also performing Friday night are Bone Vapor, Bear Flames and All of them Witches.
