Manchester's Distant Drums beat for Paris Angels's Si

Article written by Paul M - Feb 14, 2013

Manchester's musicians have joined together to celebrate the memory of Paris Angels' drummer Si Worrall. Distant Drums, the results, even includes a one-off track by The Stone Roses' Mani with Dust Junkys’ MC Tunes along with Spencer Birtwistle. There is also a special re-recorded version of ‘Death Of Imagination’ for Simon by Mark Burgess, John Lever (both of The Chameleons) with guitarists Andy Clegg & Andy Whitaker recording together again as The Sun and The Moon. Amongst the many other generous contributors are Paris Angels with a previously unreleased track, Intastella, Tony Ogden (World Of Twist), Inspiral Carpets, The Cornelius Crane, Dub Sex, Eliza P, SupaJamma, Proud Mary, Suddi Raval, The Clint Boon Experience, Martin Stephenson, The Rainkings and many more.

All artists featured on the album have donated their tracks royalty free for use on this record and profits raised from the release of the album will go towards Hector's Charity, set up at St Mary's Hospital / Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Charity by Clint Boon's young son, Hector.

Big Si, as everyone knew him, was the friendly drummer in Paris Angels, who passed away in October 2011. Si was big in stature at 6'4" and big in personality. To give you a handle on him, he was a mixture between Keith Moon and Tommy Cooper, a merry prankster that always had a one-liner ready for everyone and all situations. He was never punctual and sometimes infuriating, but you could never stay mad with him because he had a heart of gold and a rapier-like wit to match. A true mad-cap colossus of a drummer with an infectious smile who is truly missed by all that met him.
