("Loon" meaning not a crazy person, but the beloved water bird)
Thoughts on various things from my perspective as a Latter-Day Saint, an idealist, and a generally curious person
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...
Excellent pieces. Keep posting such kind of information on your blog. I really impressed by your blog. Vee Eee Technologies
