The Saturday List #445 - Eleven different instruments that have featured in recordings and gigs by the False Dots and who played them

Last year, a brand new member joined The False Dots! Master Trumpeter Tom Hammond was our first new member in fourteen years! Tom posted the following on Facebook yesterday -

 Following recent releases from Slash Fiction and Express Office Portico, the total number of artists/bands that have songs out featuring myself (Trumpet Tom) has reached 14. So I know what everyone is thinking... how many songs do you play in with each of these artists?
Well I'm glad you asked because I just created a pie chart. Here it is.
If you want to know more, here's a playlist. More songs have already been recorded and are out soon!
Check out Tom's playlist here, there is some brilliant music here.

This post got me thinking. Just how many instruments have featured on False Dots recordings and at gigs and reherasals over the years? I had a look through and the list is really quite amazing. I'd never realised that we'd actually featured eleven distinct musical instruments etc. I've not included vocalists here, as I think band members needed a little bit of spotlight
