Fall Down on your knees – Fox

March 26, 2011

Alright lets change things up a little bit, hailing from Budapest, Hungary we have the Naked Truckers Trio, who suprizingly enough aren’t scared to get naked to rock out. Nice solid playing from the Fox, both clothed and unclothed. Nice use of the maraca on the floor tom to drive it home.. I’ve used this technique a few times in the past, cool to see someone else bust it out… Take it away Fox!!!!!

Haulin Hearse – Baron Shivers

February 20, 2011

The Ghastly Ones hail from Van Nuys, CA. Baron Shivers is the ghoul driving the kit with lightning snare fills. The Ghastly’s Ones have an old school surf-horror sound all of their own. They look like the house band for some of Vincent Prices wilder parties. Come on in and surf for a while?

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…

Liam Crill – Another Year

January 1, 2011

What can I say, I like Liam’s energy and style, he powers the Kings of Nuthin which is a power house outta Boston. I haven’t seen these guys yet, but they’re like a jolt of fresh air on a winters day. Being New Years and all I thought this would be a good tune to end off the year, and usher in the new one. So kick us off Liam, kick us into Another Year!!!
