5 Famous Drum Set Quirks feat. Bob Bert / Pussy Galore

“Bob Bert’s Scrap Metal

Early Sonic Youth drummer Bob Bert joined noise-rock outfit Pussy Galore in the mid ’80s and moved on to banging away on scrap metal to create his harsh beats. Ladled with sheets of steel and big, heavy springs laid out across his drums that he used to create a bizarre, shrill sonic palette, Bert’s kick-drum-mounted traps table looked more like the back of a scrapper’s truck than part of an instrument. This setup perfectly complemented the demented noise created by John Spencer and Neil Michael Hagerty. The tin-can plinks and iron-chain clunks became just as much a part of the band’s twisted sound as their raging, out-of-tune guitars.” – reverb.com
