Alan "Al Bongo" - Drums
(Backing vocals - Hmmph, don't think so!)
Alan has always prided himself on his ability to bash his four skins and provide the glue which holds the band together. However, unlike the more evolved members of the band Al's species "sedent in tympano" has not yet learned to stand so naturally drumming was seen as the most obvious choice in his development on the Darwinian scale. During daylight hours Al is involved in business management where he relaxes and hones his sitting down skills in preparation for an evening's energetic drumming.
