Twenty Seven Winters
When Twenty Seven Winters’
Joshua Davidson went looking for band members, he struck gold meeting drummer
Craig Williamson (Rowland S Howard, Lydia Lunch, Suzie Stapleton) through a
mutual friend. Instantly struck by Josh’s approach to songwriting and to the
guitar, Craig volunteered himself to Twenty Seven Winters as a bass player.
Months later, when the band re-invented itself, Craig reverted to drums, and
enlisted co-Suzie Stapleton rhythm-section cohort Leif van den Dungen (Seedy
Jeezus) on bass.
Momentum quickly gained
pace, and Craig made a call to his former Dan Brodie band-mate Paul Mileham
(Brian Henry Hooper) to come and play. No-one realised that Paul used to sit at
the bar where Josh worked, where they’d had long, passionate discussions about
music, so it’s not surprising that the musical connection was instant within the
group. The band quickly garnered a loyal following in Australia, and within
weeks of recording, Craig was in Europe touring with Buried Horses, with the
first single, Cleopatra’s Bed, in his hand. The reception was positive, and the
song quickly found its way onto French radio. Upon his return the band has been
solidifying the songs, and preparing for their debut LP.
