  1. Hmm. The facing each other drummers is kinda cool. Done before?

    If I can buy something by these guys and learn it I would love to go see them (a future date, Peter?) if they’re still around.

    Forgive me, but I always get a condescending feeling when you review this kind of stuff. Like its best place is live because it doesn’t really cut the muster of good recorded music.

    Maybe it’s just my oversensitive vagina.

  2. You know, listening to Go Home I had that thought about hearing them live, but by the end I was digging the relatively airy mix. There’re a lot of sounds going on in there, and the record captures it well.

    Oh yeah, no CD on these guys. Just vinyl.

    You can download and then burn to a CD. It’s 90s tech, pretty easy to do once you work out the flow.

    They’re playing live in my neighborhood, which is how I came up on them. Alas, it’s in July and I will be hundreds of miles away.

    In the comments I think someone said the Butthole Surfers did the drum thing, or maybe they just meant two drums.

  3. I actually saw Vince Gill with two drummers, in the mid-1990s. But they were side-to-side, not front and back. It was cool nonetheless.

    And I saw Adam & The Ants before they were over-the-top commercial. “Kings Of The Wild Frontier” era, 90 percent of that album was the two-drummer sound.

    The musical geniuses around here should have a fucking field day with that one.
