Mat Hector

Iggy Pop / Razorlight

As part of Iggy Pop's band for the last five years Mat has become widely known for his hard-hitting groove and stylistic adaptability. This has been showcased in his work with the immersive and visceral live rock/film show Gutteredammerung, during which he worked with the likes of Grace Jones and Henry Rollins. Most recently Mat has also taken on drumming duties with English indie rock superstars Razorlight.

Prior to joining Iggy Pop, Mat worked with Thomas Dolby for a number of years, completing multiple US and world tours. He also recorded on his last studio album "A Map Of The Floating City" as well the live album "Thomas Dolby - Live in Tokyo" and appeared with Thomas on the anniversary edition of "The Old Grey Whistle Test".

In addition to working with Iggy, Razorlight, Gutterdammerung and Thomas Dolby Mat took the drumming seat alongside legendary Bowie pianist Mike Garson on the recent Aladdin Sane tour. This year has also seen Mat complete a number of live dates with Marc Almond, and studio work with Japanese megastar Hotei.

While working as a busy musician, Mat has continued his work as a highly respected educator and teacher, continuing to teach one to one, as well as completing masterclasses and lectures at Europe's biggest music college - The Academy Of Contemporary Music.
