Drum Theatre comprised Kent B. (drums, keyboards), Gari Tarn (drums, vocals), Paul Snook (drums, bass guitar). Originally a very exciting visual act, they boasted six members, all of whom played the drums at some point. By the time the band were signed to a recording contract they had been slimmed down to a trio. They received attention when their first single of 1986, ‘Living In The Past’, made a minor impact on the UK charts, while they were supporting the Human League on a European tour. The reissue of their 1985 single ‘Eldorado’, in 1987, received plenty of radio airplay and just missed the Top 40, and their debut album was released to mixed reaction and poor sales.
“Eldorado” was produced by Gary Langan who co-founded the ZTT Records label with Trevor Horn, Paul Morley and Jill Sinclair. He was also a founding member of the musical group Art of Noise, but departed in 1986 after touring in support of the group’s In Visible Silence album.
