Paul - Drums


The Piz "drums" once consisted of:
  • 1 snare
  • 3 upside-down Kool Seal roof coating buckets
  • 3 books to tilt the buckets into position
  • 1 coffee can with a band-aid on it
  • 1 severely damaged cymbal, now broken in half and chained together
  • 2 cracked drumsticks of different sizes with 3 kinds of tape and both tips broken off
  • 1 rocking chair held together with string and duct tape for paul to sit in

Nowadays we have more things like:

  • 1 lamp
  • 1 metal pan to hold the broken cymbal and chain
  • 1 tambourine
  • 1 bottom of a shopping cart
  • 1 cowbell
  • 1 metal folding stool
  • 1 large "famous Danish castles" butter cookies can
  • 1 real bass drum
  • 2 real toms
  • 1 crappy snare drum with no snare
  • 1 lamp made into a bucket stand
  • real cymbals - hi-hat, ride, crash-ride, splash
  • a real drum throne
  • more drumsticks including brushes and mallets
  • 1 thick metal lid of a pot

Paul didn't start playing drums until we got them.
Before that, his job in the band seemed to be playing slide whistle.
