Damian Cowell Life story


Damian Joseph Cowell, also known by his former stage names Humphrey B. Flaubert and DC Root, is an Australian musician who is best known as the frontman for TISM, Root!, The DC3 and Damian Cowell's Disco Machine.

Damian Joseph Cowell (born on 25 October [year unknown, possibly in the early 1960s]), also known by his former stage names Humphrey B. Flaubert and DC Root, is an Australian musician who is best known as the frontman for TISM, Root!, The DC3 and Damian Cowell's Disco Machine.

History


Cowell was born and schooled in Melbourne. His musical output began in the 1970s, when he played in various high school bands. In the early 1980s, he was part of a little-known group called I Can Run, featuring future TISM bandmate Eugene Cester. In December 1982, TISM formed and Cowell adopted the pseudonym "Humphrey B. Flaubert", a play on Australian children's television character Humphrey B. Bear and French author Gustave Flaubert. The group enjoyed underground success in the late 1980s and reached the ARIA top 10 in 1995 with their album Machiavelli and the Four Seasons.

TISM remained largely anonymous throughout their career. Cowell publicly acknowledged his involvement in TISM via the debut single of his band the DC3 – a song titled "I Was The Guy In TISM".

Post-TISM


Cowell returned to the stage in 2007 under the moniker DC Root, fronting a band called ROOT! During this period Cowell was commissioned by David Walsh to create a soundtrack for his Museum of Old and New Art. The soundtrack was titled Vs Art.

In 2010, ROOT! disbanded and quickly re-formed as The DC3.Even though much of Cowell's work uses programmed drums, he has played live drums at times, most notably during some songs in TISM's performance at Homebake 1998.

The line-up of his current band, Damian Cowell's Disco Machine, consists of:

Gordon Blake – guitar

Andy Hazel – bass

Gary Walker – drums

Will Hindmarsh – keyboards

Emily Jarrett – backing vocals, dancing, violin

Bek Chapman – backing vocals, dancing

Tony Martin – additional vocals (recurring guest)
