James Fisher plays drums for UK alternative rock band Basement.
Basement grew up together in and around the small town of Ipswich, Suffolk. James was only playing a short while before the band was formed and during early practise sessions he had no choice but to play a DD-55 electronic ‘drum kit’ (look it up, its hilarious).
Since then, Basement toured extensively, took a break, came back, toured some more, all before signing to major label Fueled By Ramen where they will release their 4th studio album.’
