Chris Manfrin's parts in both Seam and especially Bottomless Pit are always well thought out and interesting. He rarely settles for a standard backbeat.

Garth Mason. Emphasis, restraint; plays around and with the music without stepping all over it.

Paul Thompson.

Surprised that SE didn't include him in the initial post.

Indeed, Paul Thompson is so underrated that I forgot to even think about him.

Very, very good call.

Bump. The top 10 drummers thread reminded me of this.

In the original spirit of the thread, here are ten drummers I like a lot who I don't think anyone talks about very much.

1. Kenny Morris (Siouxsie and the Banshees) - Morris was the guy who played on The Scream and Join Hands. I've always really enjoyed his drumming - it's very tom-focused and driving, but fairly original at the same time. He was kind of like Paul Cook from the Sex Pistols if he'd played faster and listened to Moe Tucker instead of the guy from Slade.

2. Paul Trudeau (Harvey Milk) - Kyle Spence is an absolute monster and I adore his playing, but I think Harvey Milk's best records were with Trudeau on drums. I really like Trudeau's somewhat simpler feel and style.

3. Chu Hasegawa (Corrupted) - Has anyone done tortuously slow and crushing doom metal drumming better than on Paso inferior? How does anyone drum like that live?

4. Scott Krauss (Pere Ubu) - Krauss was the master of perfectly understated, rock-solid garage drums. More often than not, he's the only person holding Ubu together at all musically on the early records.

5. Peter Leopold (Amon Düül II) - Imagine Nick Mason if Nick Mason could drum above 15 bpm in the studio, had more technique, hit harder and liked Mitch Mitchell, and you'd basically have this guy. He was very solid, and had a semi-garage feel to his playing too.

6. Drajan (Brainbombs, No Balls) - The drumming is what makes Brainbombs work as music. The riffs are vicious, of course, but they'd be a boring bunch of nothing if they weren't completely serving the drumming. That guy just locks in on a rhythm like no one else.

7. Brent Prager (Cherubs) - He was perfect for the band - he hit hard, handled some unorthodox time signatures and never tried to make you notice that, had some good coordination, and could easily handle anything the other two threw at him.

8. Chris Clift (Infest) - Helping to invent powerviolence should count for something.

9. Greg Davis (Oxbow) - He's an extremely polished musician, and very technically accomplished, but he's never flashy about it. Hits harder than a motherfucker, too.

10. Epic Soundtracks (Swell Maps) - He had such a unique style - very krautrock and glam rock informed, very solid, and very driving. "The Helicopter Spies" has the simplest beat and something so awkwardly monolithic shouldn't work at all, but it rocks so hard.

Your choices?
Life...life...I know it's got its ups and downs.

In the someday, what's that sound.

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?

Love this band so much. Does he still play?

Also, Bryan St. Pere from Hum. Last couple minutes of "Winder" = favorite ending to an album ever.

I never see people talking about Reed Mullin's amazing performance on this record:

He's doing a lot there, and the music doesn't lose momentum for a second.

Also, Nicke Andersson in general, he's on fire on this album, but the build up starting at 2:50 and going through to the end of the song is entirely dependent on him kicking ass, which he did:

These two have probably been mentioned already earlier in this thread, but to reiterate:

Carla Azar from Autolux

Maybe no one can hear it under the singer's failed Hetfield imitation.

Seriously, though, that is good drumming. Complicated.

Though I can easily see how the singing can be grating (I like it), I don't think he sounds anything like Hetfield, to be honest.

Best thing about that record is Mullin's drumming. Thoughtful choice.

Went thru the thread and might have missed it but has anyone mentioned Ted Parsons from Prong who's also drummed for some pretty heavy hitters- Swans, Of Cabbages and Kings, Killing Joke, Godflesh, Jesu - not anything too flashy with Prong but like many a drummer coming from 80's NY HxC and crossover just rock solid.

This is from Force Fed, their 2nd album and perhaps their best.
phpBB [media]

The first two Prong records are 80's crossover gems.

Gunna have to bear with me as I reminisce down Lunkhead Lane but Mackie Jayson from the Mags. No idea what they sound like these days - I mean, other than of Age of Quarrel which you still need to take with a grain of salt, who cares : they're crap. But here, his drumming's got scoot

Brian Betzger from Jerry's Kids. Dude's got a tail with a stick duct taped to it. Just like Gojira's Mario Duplantier. I swear it. This guy's like a force unto himself. Boston what's in your water?
