"John Colpitts (aka Kid Millions) is a Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist, composer and writer who is perhaps best known as a drummer. Distinguished by his work in the band Oneida he founded in 1997, Colpitts' takes inspiration from a wide range of music - including the Krautrock experimental bands from the 1970s, American free jazz, European free improvisation, Cleveland, Detroit and New York punk, hardcore and proto punk, the American minimalist rock composers Rhys Chatham and Glenn Branca and the minimalist experiments of Steve Reich, La Monte Young and Philip Glass. Man Forever is Colpitts' vehicle for his long-form drum and ensemble compositions. The group started in 2010 as a drum ensemble and has evolved to include guitar, bass, organ in the current line up. Musicians who have participated in recordings and live performances include Christopher Weingarten (Parts and Labor), Brian Chase (Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs), James McNew (Yo La Tengo), Chris Baio (Vampire Weekend), Richard Hoffman (Sightings), Shahin Motia (Oneida, Ex Models), Sarah Richardson (Creeping Nobodies), Ryan Sawyer (Stars Like Fleas), Greg Fox (Liturgy, Guardian Alien) and many others."
