Crest on is a percussion major, and one hell of a drummer himself. He told me he writes all the pretty stuff, and Paul/Kyle and Stee bang out the heavy stuff.

I wonder how much influence he has on the drums?


Interesting question for sure. I remember reading somewhere that Spiers was a really good drummer (I believe that's all him playing on "Go Back To France"), though I had no idea he was a percussion major. It could be that he writes a fair amount of the drum parts; I'm sure that having his percussion knowledge in the band is partially why they're so good at writing such strange rhythms.
Life...life...I know it's got its ups and downs.

In the someday, what's that sound.

Jayson Gerycz from Cloud Nothings totally elevates his band above the many others like it. So good I'm kind of shocked I had to consult Google to get his name, I'd think he'd be all over Modern Drummer and whatnot by now.

ok, not to threadjack... but what am I missing with this band?
Their music seems like it would be stock "decent local band material" to me.

Absolutely nothing jumped out at me.
Maybe if I had never heard the Wipers...

I REALLY don't see it.

After seeing him live yesterday, definitely Christian Vander.

Denardo Coleman.

A lot of Monk's drummers, like Frankie Dunlop for instance.

Eddie Watkins, who's probably already been mentioned.

Charles Gocher was a master drummer and percussionist, that could create entire worlds out of hitting stuff. Not that easy, and almost nobody can do that (Maybe Charles Hayward???)

Ringo, of course. Try playing like fucking Ringo, and see how well it goes for you, fucker. Ringo is Ringo for a reason, long life, Ringo, outlast them all!

Norm Rogers, of the Cows, is another completely fenomenal drummer, that plays something irreplicable, that gets buried in the history books. I had to looked up his name, for Christ's sake, and without him and his druggy, buried, brownie (???) drums there would be no Cows!

Also, no one ever mentions how perfect the Thinking Fellers drums are. Jay Paget might not have been as top notch as every other member of the Fellers, but his drums are exactly what the Fellers needed.

Dannie Richmond had an exciting, frenetic style that worked especially well with the music that Mingus wrote. There's a funny interview snippet at the end of this video.

Bill Berry and Gina Schock. Two drummers that made their very big bands groove hard without needing to showoff. They never get talked about.

Hell yeah to Dannie Richmond.

Story goes that Mingus taught him how to play. Really original player and perfect for the music.
