Liam Crill Interview

January 18, 2011

Krash Boom Bam recently had a chat with none other than Liam Crill the driving force behind the Kings of Nuthin. We asked Liam about his gig, his gear and his wisdom. This is what Liam had to say…

what kind of set up are you using?
what do you use for heads, cymbals, sticks, kick pedal, snare?

my kit is a ’64 slingerland- 20″ bass drum, 16″ floor tom, a series zildjin medium ride and some hunk a shit crash cymbal i found in the trash. for snare i use a 70s ludwig acrolyte or the bad ass 60s gretsch aluminum shell snare i found in the same dumpster i found the crash, i usually use remo ambassador heads, vicfirth 5b wood tips. for kick pedal i use ludwig speed king. the 70s models seem to hold up better than the modern ones- they’re great- fast, good response and they take an ass whuppin’.

who are your fave players?

earl palmer was the best- all his new orleans r&b sessions are incredible. scott pittman, is my favorite modern drummer. he played in a boston band called the shods and plays with the frank morey band nowadays. the guy is amazing to watch live, can’t ever see his hands…
