We talked about the making of the brilliant new chart topping album from The Wildhearts called '21st Century Love Songs' and how the writing process was much different because of the pandemic and lockdowns. This freedom allowed for Ritch to give more thought to his drum parts which has clearly resulted in some very interesting and creative beats. Listen to this conversation to learn about how a serious Covid related scare almost prevented the band's September 2021 tour from happening and how the band are trying to keep a strict bubble on the road which means they're unable to see guests and family members. Learn more about all the different kits Ritch has played over the years and find out which brand of cymbals he's used since the very beginning. Listen to find out why he's never enjoyed the music of rock legends and pioneers Led Zeppelin, his favourite songs to perform live, his experiences with in ear monitors, recording with click tracks and why he wants to record the next album without one and much more.I hope you enjoy this free episode, please subscribe to the podcast via your podcast provider & YouTube, like and review where you can and share with anyone else who might be interested.I'd like to give a special thanks to my top-tier 'Groove Master' Patrons for their extended support.
