Interview – Steve Taylor

October 16, 2011

Sometimes legends live in your own backyard… Krash Boom Bam recently had the pleasure of interviewing one of my personal favorite drummers Steve Taylor.

What kind of set up are you using?

Mike Van Eyes and Ron Scott saw this kit in New West that was under a car port in a back alley. It has a cool brown/grey swirl to it. I think it’s called root beer swirl. They approached the owners and offered $50.00 for them and I put another $150.00 into them for new drum heads.

They’re some proto-type for maybe premier or Japan models. No name on them. 20″ BD,13″ rack, 16″ floor tom, matching wooden snare that’s 14×5 that I don’t use that much. No name on them…

Adventures through inner space – Dave Klein

July 21, 2011

I first picked up on the Bombora’s while on tour in Cali. They are an uber cool act and as usual, i was drawn to the drums. Dave Klein really kills it with his peppy, snappy playing just cutting through that wall of guitar and organ. I hear he is touring with Agent Orange at the moment. Bang up job Dave!!!! Drop us a line and let us know what your up too!!!!

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?
