After The Keepers: What Liam and Ollie Did Next

INTRODUCING THE COMMS

Liam Taylor and Ollie Rumens may be best known as the former members of local mod-indie band, The Keepers. I caught up with them both to see what's next on the horizon for the boys after life in The Keepers

Ollie, now studying music at the University of Northampton, about to embark on his second year, and Liam, have decided to form a new band. Needing a new musical outlet to hone their creative impulse, the pair have kept writing and producing, with the help of local session drummer, Adam Gammage,  whilst hunting for additional members.  The boys have now settled on  a final lineup.
