I'm not too keen on the latter
...and loads of tedious jazz-rock and fusion bands have myriad extraneous percussionists...
(They've had loads of drummers, but not, like, at the same time?)
and there are 2 chaps on drums
and as recently as November? And there's definitely one drummer live.
They had two drummers on their first album, but playing on different tracks, not at the same time. Likely the case for the second album too. They seem to get through bassists pretty quickly too.
Unless you mean the hardcore, noisy, not nu-krautrock-esque band of the same name, who could have two drummers?
*technically* they do have more than one drummer though - criteria enough for the thread :)
not live they don't
That band with Karl Middleton from Earthtone 9- they weren't that hot. They're the only example I can think of though.
was epic * 10. Second was disappointing, but still had a few great tracks on it.
disco drive last night. 2 drummers = ace.
Hex Enduction Hour-era...
And Health! Do Health have two drummers?
LIARS! Yes, they definitely have two.
The Go Team have two drummers ? cos they are shockingly bad..
You should hear his new band...
godspeed - had two drummers
fugazi - did for some songs
trail of dead - some songs
Bently Rythem Ace on telly with two drummers.... I use to enjoy a bit of big beat.
Dirtbombs have two drummers and two bass players, right?
I once saw a band with 2 guitarists!
im liking British Expeditionary Force and they have two drummers live, ace stuff.
Has 2 drummers
at reading festival with two drummers once, it was immense! and ive seen foo fighters do a few tracks with dave on a second drum kit in liverpool. also sounded really good! cant think of any bands where this is a permanant set up though
might be able to assist me in this, as i had a conversation around this very "2(+) drummers good" fact where I proposed Jaga Jazzist as a fine example of a great band as I was sure they had more than 1 drummer when I saw them, but this was disputed and i've as yet been unable to find out either way.
i forget thom yorke playing his mini drum kit in blackpool couple of years back~!
Tortoise years ago they were fart-arsing around with loads of bloody drumkits. It was well boring so I went to the bar and waited for Stereolab to come on, who, incidentally, were ace.
are fucking brilliant
friendly fires in paris
and they were amazing.
i think every member played drums, except they only really did it two at a time. but, yeah, black eyes are total win
Eye, from boredoms, did an experiment in new york last year where had 77 drummers playing at once. Although I don't see how it would work musically.
shit and shine, jazzfinger, boredoms, there's probably loads. although, granted, they are quite 'avant-garde'.
Its a great thing to witness live, too, especially when they all start playing in time, its magical stuff.
starting a Brixton Academy gig a few years back with a drum off. Best start to a gig ever.
He used two drummers on songs like 'Red Right Hand'. Fucking amazing.
Having two bassists can put you on dodgy ground...
Ned's atomic dustbin (face it, they were shit)
Girls Against Boys (good if a bit samey)
I think there should be some sort of bassist redistribution programme. Bands like Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and the White Stripes who don't have any could have one of the spares from those who have two.
they's well cool. And I'm oddly attracted to Meg, so let's leave her outta this!
This thread's inspired me to listen to Man Man...
Saw them live with two, brilliant.
Plus the following were all better when they had two drummers:
Trail of Dead
In all honesty, I would like any band with two drummers. Its all I want from an act.
were another great band with two drummers.
Fucking awesome to watch.
to question how nobody had mentioned Melvins. The new album was great.
Short lived Killing Joke side project Murder Inc. are also supposed to be good, although The Fall are the winners of this thread.
The statement looks pretty solid to me.
seem to remember them as a bit shite
upCdownC... use to, but are now down to just the 1
local (southampton) promoters ahve managed to put together a band which has FOUR drummers (someone else got involved too last time, so its actually kind of 5) which is the most i know of!
Isnt there a band cannles Aa (big a little a) which has 3 drummers, or is that just 3 of them play drums at different points?
side project, flint, had two drummers. they were awful. we knew already that liam was the brains behind the prodigy, keith really didn't have to prove it to us.
i was going to suggest them, but you beat me to it!
they were absolutely shite
hundreds, tens & units
yeah...... i love black eyes and MUNCH MUNCH and action beat and and and EVERY BAND WITH 2 DRUMMERS!
who had two drummers and were excellent.
have two drummers at some points in their live show.
