Ringo Starr’s Son Zak Starkey Launches New Band Pengu!ns

Former Oasis drummer and current drummer with The Who, Zak Starkey, has launched his latest project Pengu!ns with the release of a new track. The song is called ‘HateMale’ and can be streamed and downloaded for free from the group’s SoundCloud page.

Pengu!ns are made up of Zak Starkey and vocalist Sshh. Speaking about the new track, Starkey said: “‘HateMale’ is a tune about an asshole on a plane who was asking Sshh to turn down her iPod even though he was three seats away and across the aisle. Sounds aggressive but so was he and so are we.”

Zak Starkey joined Oasis in 2004 to replace the band’s previous drummer Alan White, who had been a member of the group since 1995’s ‘(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?’ Starkey played drums on Oasis’s final two albums, 2005’s ‘Don’t Believe the Truth’ and 2008’s ‘Dig Out Your Soul’, although he was never named as an official member of the band. He has been a touring member of The Who since 1996 and has also previously worked with the likes of Johnny Marr, Paul Weller and The Lightning Seeds.

Pengu!ns UK Tour Dates are as follows:

Friday 7th October 2011 - The Caves, Edinburgh
Saturday 22nd October 2011 - Sound Control, Manchester
Friday 28th October 2011 - Vibe Bar, London
