EEERRRRR……. Uuhh.. Well…
I guess you were right about that double bass drum pedal that Pat got. I just bought myself a copie of the "Whatever’s Cool With Me" CD/EP. It seems to be a Pat Murphy double base drum pedal showcase!
Although I have to say that in the live version of Thumb on there, you can tell where he takes his foot off the Hihat. It sounds like it’s just for the little thududududut at the end of each section. I think you can hear all the 16th notes he does with his left foot on the hihat during the rest of Thumb are just the same as on Greenmind.
But seriously, sorry about being so insistant.
Oh yeah! An editor at modern drummer said he would bring up the idea of a J mascis interview at their next editorial planning meeting.
