"My first kit was a black Premier Olympic in the late 90s. When we signed a record deal a few years later I ran out and bought a beautiful little mother of pearl APK be-bop kit. I've been obsessed with it ever since, and played it all over the world, on Jools Holland, at Glastonbury. I took that kit everywhere. It feels like coming home to find myself playing one again. The new Artist Heritage range is an almost exact remake of the original APK and for me is just one of the most playable kits around. It's a joy to be playing it again and an honour to be welcomed into the Premier family. My favourite drums bar none."

Since 2001 Thomas has worked extensively as a solo artist, session player and producer. He currently drums with Sea Power and The Waeve.

Previous studio/touring work includes: The Electric Soft Parade, Brakes, Sparks, Patrick Wolf, Levellers, The Fiction Aisle, Rose Elinor Dougall, The Twang, Ella Janes, Maven Grace and Mystery Jets.
