(I took the header picture of a Common Loon resting on a pond in Utah on its way north in June of 2015. It was in transition from winter to summer plumage.)

Translate - I dare you. Then make a comment on the funny errors the translator made.

Typecast: scripts and percussion

great post. I love it when an attitude to instruments changes in ways that are completely anti or far away from the catalogue sales guff. A good drummer can get more out of less - always.

I'm thinking of that scene in Control, the movie about Joy Division singer Ian Curtis: the drummer is tooling around with this big silly kit with all the toms and things, and producer Martin Hannet puts him up on the roof with just a snare and bass, and tells him to just keep playing the beat. Which he does for hours and hours.

But also, yes, a good ride cymbal is something else. The way Bonzo holds down the ride rhythm, or even Robert Wyatt on his later solo albums... or jazz...
