Bought a ticket to see Merzbow in London. I am very excited about this. He rarely comes to the UK, I wrote a lot of my Uni work about him and it's only about an hour away in the car... for £12.
He was a lark. For me funniest was his replies to the thread where a homeless guy was looking to get a new drum kit in the 'right sizes' to carry around. im pretty sure the OP was not truly homeless but Steve gave him the goods.Just doing a bit of "housekeeping" by getting rid of some old PM's to make some room. Found an old PM from Tamadrm while I was at it.
It gave me a giggle......and it made me sad.
I really miss that guy. I would have liked to have met him. He was a riot.
The 48" version of this drum got me kicked out of HS Band. My teacher was easily annoyed. I would get the head moving back and forth with my fingers enough to get a low rumble going, more like a wooomf...wooomf. It drove him up a wall and he thought the HVAC system was having trouble and notified maintenance. This went on for weeks and one day, I got busted!Went to the middle school band concert last night. Grandson is in 6th grade and has been playing trumpet for 8 weeks now. The whole 6th grade orchestra was hurtful on the ears, but I was proud as punch.
The 8th grade orchestra had a big bass drum - I mean BIG. It must have been 42 inches (100 cm) in diameter. It made the whole gymnasium thunder when they struck it. And they didn't have to hit it hard, just a gentle thump with a fuzzy mallet. Awesome!!
My wife had a roommate in college that would say it "Arrnj". I think she was from Vermont.Reminds me years ago of a woman I was dating. She would call an "orange an orange" but the "color" was pronounced "urnge".
