Justin Bennett is a studio and live performance session drummer and producer. He has been working professionally since 1995, and has participated on tours and albums with a number of notable bands and artists, including Skinny Puppy, Ohgr, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, Peter Murphy and Rozz Williams[1] as well as forming his own project, American Memory.

American Memory[edit]

Bennett worked on a video project called American Memory[1] with guitarist William Morrison.[2] According to Morrison, the idea of the project is that far in the future, after America no longer exists, an archive of American audio and visual material is discovered by a group of artists, who reinterpret their findings and broadcast them back in time.[3]

Tours[edit]

American Memory toured with OhGr in the United States and Canada in 2008, adding visuals to the shows.[4] Bennett toured with Skinny Puppy on their last three tours, "Greater Wrong of the Right", "Mythrus",[2] and "In Solvent See".[1] In spring 2010, he toured with My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult[1] and Bahntier.[5]
