Last August I attempted to derail The Drums from Brooklyn's hype train by providing an alternative also named The Drums, which consisted of John Dwyer and Ezeetiger. My guess is it went largely unnoticed.
Last week I received an email from Ezeetiger with a video made by the drummer himself:
I'm still chuckling at the video description, which reads “If you are looking for the other band called “The Drums” try including the word jizz in the search.”
As rad as this video is, it's a tribute to an artifact. Ezeetiger told me he wished he and John could record more music together, but with Thee Oh Sees relentless touring and his impending move to North Carolina it will be difficult. But he's not ruling out the possibility entirely.
