rademacher changes drummers

yep, the ever evolving line up of fresno greats rademacher continues to...well...evolve. i spoke to former drummer eli reyes on saturday night. he told me that he was no longer in the band, but that he felt it was a pretty amiable split that had been coming for sometime. he's been devoting a lot of time to the fay wrays, and figured that he might leave the band after the next round of tours. he's also working with time commitments from family, job, and recording an album for the fay wrays.

rademacher now consists of
malcom sosa - vocals & guitar
greer mcgettrick - bass & vocals & piano dealy
eden davis - drums

here's what malcom said on the situation
"we haven't changed drummers yet. Eli will be playing 3 more dates with us in SF and Merced and Fresno, but for our upcoming tour with airborne toxic event, we'll be taking along our friend Eden Davis.

She has a different style than Eli."

on our recent podcast, greer told me that the remaining few fresno shows will sort of be farewell to eli shows, so it can really be a good transition and not just "you're fired," type situation.

some more rademacher news, taken from a myspace bulletin:
We're really excited to be touring with two of our favorite LA bands in the coming weeks. The Airborne Toxic Event and the Henry Clay People. We also have a handful of dates on our own.

rademacher, more drummers than spinal tap. go out and see them as they hit up the west coast before they head down to austin for sxsw. or, see them in austin during sxsw (i hear they're playing the devil in the woods record label showcase even though they're not only the label.)

I had a feeling Eli was going to have a choice to make here sometime. I think the Fay Wrays is a better fit, for sure.

Great post Ed.
