Drumming Up Support
ARGYLE are making a temporary signing on deadline day - and it is a man who has recently played at Reading and Leeds.Brit Award-winning rock band Bastille's drummer, Chris 'Woody' Wood - who sets the tempo playing just off a lone frontman - is putting down the sticks and picking up the headset, joining Rob McNichol for commentary on Argyle's Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie with AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday night on Argyle Player HD. The group played in front of tens of thousands at Reading and Leeds festivals over the weekend, and now Woody will follow up by watching his beloved Greens take their first step on the road to Wembley in the JPT.
Bastille shared the bill at Reading and Leeds with Mumford and Sons, and it is appropriate that the Pilgrims and the Dons meet this week. Woody had a bet with Wimbledon fan and Mumfords' lead singer Marcus Mumford before the first game of the season, in which Argyle prevailed. Therefore, Mumford and Sons performed their sets with an Argyle flag adorning their drum kit.
Woody has a good record as a summeriser, joining the legendary Gordon Sparks for previous games against Dagenham & Redbridge and Southend in which Argyle were victorious.
BBC Radio Devon are not carrying commentary of the game at the Cherry Red Records Stadium, so the only place to listen to the game is on Argyle Player HD. You can register now at player.pafc.co.uk and get the month of September for just £4.49. Alternatively, sign up for a year for only £37.99 - that works out to only a little over 10p a day over 12 months.
