What can you say? It's an excellent drumming track  :D

I love both TBE and Blunders approach to teaching/advertising/demonstration. They're both so very down to earth (TBE's accent makes me feel like I'm back home :p).

In terms of the videos I was more interested in the 2box's ability to emulate famous drum kits. Does anyone else think this is genius? There's always a few cheeky homages on synths (I've seen an organ patch called Deep Violet somewhere) so why not the drumbles?

Well, well; excellent stuff. Reminds me all over again what a superbly rhythmic track Pocket Sun is, although I'm not quite sure I remember there being quite as much cymbal  ;)

And from TBE and Blunders on drums, to everyone else who's ever played with Frost*, it all goes to show what a fabulous bunch of musicians these blokes are.

Oh there was, with no Toms TBE had to hit something! The mix on the video is heavier on the kit, so the cymbals are more noticeable, I think.

Well, that's what I meant, I suppose: the cymbals are much more upfront in the Jobecky video, but yes, there were plenty of them in the original too.

Perhaps cut out the middle man and just stitch them both together to create The Boy Blunders?

As I said on Twitter, I think the Jobecky kits sound much more natural than the Roland ones based on both of the Pocket Sun videos. I'm always suspicious that roland stick less sample memory in their brains to keep costs down.

Also funny how two drummers can play the same thing (well, almost), but have a completely different groove and feel. Still, they both fit right into Frost*. Good musicianship that is. They're both glorious and huge heroes of mine. :D

Awesome!  Love the idea of those multi-personality drums and, yes, we are very lucky to see this and Craig's demo together. Drums are just super-exciting these days and it annoys me a great deal that I just can't really play the drums very well (and am now at that 40-something period of my life where finding the time may never now be possible).

Thinking about the different members of Frost* over the years led me to this though - how awesome would it be one day for the double-trio (plus Jem) version of Frost* to be revealed?

Andy and Craig on drumkits.
John and Nathan on basses.
John and Dec on guitars.
Jem in the middle of it all!

Oh yes, the F* Onion tour is on my list of things to make happen when I win big on the lottery. :)
