Title: Jason Cooper plays drums in the upcoming Marina and the Diamonds album
Post by: dsanchez on November 25, 2014, 15:01:25
Froot is the upcoming third studio album by Welsh recording artist Marina and the Diamonds. Jason plays drums in this record to be released in April 2015.

QuoteI got Alex and Jeremy from the band to do guitars [on FROOT] - I'm a massive fan of them - Jason Cooper who drums in The Cure, he did all the percussion on the record. It's definitely got their influence in there

About this I can think of two things:

1) In his mind, Jason is doing a great job with The Cure so he doesn't spend any more time trying to improve his playing with the band, trying to figure out those important & distinctive drum patterns left by the past drummers.

2) Definitely Jason threw in the towel and realized that he can't reach the musicianship level of Boris, Andy or even Lol ( who played with more vibe and passion than him ) and decided to look for side projects.
