My guess is no, but I could be wrong.
Are you going to give an honest, unbiased review?
There is such a thing?
kick or lick
what? we can't all listen to barbara streisand you know.
Who the hell hasn't heard neurosis?
Buncha old farts.........
But I haven't seen them since the late 80's. Keep hoping they show up at the State Fair.
I'd heard them a few times but don't really know them well, and until last night I had never seen them live. They played a sold out gig at the Great American Music Hall in SF last night and the answer is hells yeah, H8R's band kicks ass. They bring layers and layers of sound, a lot of space between huge onslaughts. Some tunes built slowly to punishing crescendos, others made more abrubt changes, but throughout the effect was waves and waves of heavy sound. And the band was super tight, definitely pros who've been playing together for years.
H8R's drum sound is huge and I feel sorry for his cymbals. Once he gets to the pounding he is a thunderous basher. Friggin rad show.
Did you have to wear earplugs?
Sounds about right. I wish tahoe was worth them coming up to play. I'd love to hear them these days........being old men now and all.
Did you kill off some of the weaker hair cells in there?
Im still bummed I couldnt see them in seattle last Nov. Hope they come through again when the new record is out. ....
Ya know, playing a show after a long drive and three hours of sleep is just as easy as it was when I was 25.
The next day though...ouchy.
I'm joining an acoustic band playing bongos. This rock sh1t gets expensive.
LA on Saturday night:
Brand new bass drum beater, steel, bent almost 90 degrees.
4 pairs of sticks
Three drum heads
SF last night:
Bass drum pedal board, snapped at the hinge in the last 5 seconds of the last song
4 pairs of sticks
AND I just replaced a few cymbals before this weekend.
Damn dude, WTF is that about... I know people that have been playing the same equipment for 10 years. Well, not beaters or heads, but certain cymbals, pedals, etc.
I actually had good luck with the newer Tama pedals. I've broke a couple in the last several years. Before that I would have to buy a new pedal and a spare pretty much every tour. (I always have a spare on the floor to my right for quick changes))
Cymbals? They are somewhere between instruments and supplies for me. I only recently started buying the nicer ones again. (about $250 - $350 each)
I've destroyed ride cymbals in as little as 10 gigs.
Those high end pedals don't hold up for you any longer than a coupld of years? Our drummer has this new DW top of the line pedal (8000, or 9000 or something like that)... looks pretty bullet proof. I'd huck off a 50 footer on it, no doubt.
I listened to a clip finally and I would go see them. Plans for an Austin show, holmes?
I've looked at the 9000 pedal, pretty damn nice. I'm not crazy about the feel of the DW pedals though, for some reason the Tama pedals have this "umph" to them them in the last inch of the pedal stroke that really nails the impact just like I like it.
Eh, I dunno.
This looks attractive though:
I like the hinge bearing.
What can ya say... when it feels right it feels right. I'm no drumset player, I just know I have looked closely at our drummers pedal and it looks pretty damn sturdy... I literally said something about it looking like bike equipment.
These guys would be the Nicholai or Avalanche of drum equipment then:
Ah jeez, doesn't DW get enough praise around here already?
Seriously H8R, good stuff last night. If you were tired it sure didn't show in the way you were pounding.
