Guess what? On Monday August 19, ex-Razorlight drummer Andy Burrows is releasing his second debut album (his first as I Am Arrows) called Sun Comes Up Again, and it’s surprisingly good. Which is always nice. Way better than surprisingly bad. Which has led us to the fairly obvious but no-less-exciting mini-feature idea of making a little list of drummers from bands who have gone on to make good music either on their own or with a whole other band. Good stuff. Yeah? Yeah. We’ll start with I Am Arrows, and we’ll go from there. Okay? Great.
