I play drums in Touche Amore and DNF
and I make Dad Punchers songs

Backing up old hard drives and rediscovering some awesome photos from Touche Amore/Title Fight Australia tour in 2011

the last photo is from a secret show we played on our last night in town. Nick had already flown home, so Jamie learned 5 TA songs and filled in on guitar.

Anonymous asked: Would you ever do a drum clinic?

ehhhhhhh probably not. I just dont think I’d have anything particularly insightful to share in a group setting. I’d be much more into the idea of sitting one on one with somebody and talking drums

Sorry to hear that. Stay busy, hang out with the people who love you, maybe start a World of Warcraft account and take comfort in being a dual wielding Dwarven Paladin until the pain goes away.

Anonymous asked: My folks are making me sell my drum kit and I was wondering if there's an alternate way to keep my chops up besides using just a practice pad.

Sorry to hear that! In their defense, drums are probably the most annoying instrument when played alone and they take up a lot of space. If you can convince them to let you hang onto your kit and in return put a set of Evans Sound Off Drum mutes on them, you’ll both be at peace. I spent the first year of my drumming days playing a kit with mutes on it and in addition to eliminating 80% of the sound, they actually improve your chops because they have less rebound than an actual drum head. If that’s out of the question, buy the biggest marching sticks you can find (my
favs are Vater 3S, they are seriously tree trunks) and practice rudiments on a super plush pillow that has zero rebound. Your chops will all sorts of blazin’. Keep playing!
