This one kind of has me over a barrel. I discovered them shortly after the release of Summertime, I didn’t know of Connor then. That’s not making any point just a fact. Connor’s indifference regarding press and interviews was just down to his ways. He didn’t enjoy that shit and made no efforts to prove otherwise and I liked that. On tour they’re together 24/7 that must cause some kind of friction. Its understandable… Maybe they’ll work it out or maybe they won’t.
y’know I can only agree with you, Connor is a really decent guy…If he’s happier doing what he does now then good luck to him but I think its time the fans knew either way as he is/ was an actual member not just a session man. The three of them had this “us against the world” mentality which I adored. But people saying “oh only two original members left now”- The Drums was founded by those two members…and I think The Drums will end how they began.
Quite literally the most random thing. One minute video about Patti Smith celebrating Jean Genet’s birthday at the Museum of Modern Art.
Out of nowhere, at 48 seconds, you can see our Jonny applauding very solemnly.
That’s about it, but you probably hadn’t seen it. Take care and keep up your admirable love for all things Drums!

I should add that *Our Lady of the Flowers is one of his favourite novels
Even if I knew I wouldn’t say because its up to them. Nothing has been made official by the band (remember Adam?) But Connor is different from Adam in the respect he had creative input with songwriting credit to six tracks from Portamento…I doubt its “creative differences” but I think back to this quote stated after Adam left;
The Drums, in name, will forever remain a trio. “It’s us three,” states Hanwick, “or nothing.”
like i’d put his address out there. he lives on Manhattan’s lower east side now. so good luck with that
I play guitars but I’m not a muso and certainly not regarding synthesizers so I recommend the grand expertise of Jacob’s blog; http://mildslopes.blogspot.com/2011/12/beginning.html
he has a few green shirts, which one specifically?
here’s some knowledgeable info about the boss ps-3. http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f36/schizophrenia-pedal-form-boss-ps-3-digital-pitch-shifter-delay-review-423085/ Hope it helps
I don’t remember where I saw this but I know the PS-3 enough to know that’s the sound on the lead for Money (live). Essentially you could get away with just a regular pitch shifter set for two octaves up.
ah thank you! there you go, anon
ok I’ll have a look. yeah they use pedals for the live show now (though they didn’t at first) as for clothing- vintage suppliers are a good place to start
