Drummer (a short biography) Five special guys, feeling good together Thats what Patrick Carney, drummer for the Black Keys, perceived in his minds eye one snowy February afternoon in 2009. Dan (Auerbach, vocalist/guitarist for the Black Keys) was leaving on tour to support his solo record, and I wasnt going to have anything to do for a while, says Patrick of his impetus to start this new band. He immediately established a psychic link with old friend Jamie Stillman, better known as the drummer in both Columbus, Ohios hirsute lumberjacks Teeth of the Hydra and Kent, Ohios popular art-school dweebs Harriet the Spy. Jamie liked the idea of a band dedicated to good feelings, and thought their mutual pal Jon Finley, former drummer for Kent, Ohios legendary show-offs Party of Helicopters (for which Jamie played guitar) and current singer/multi-instrumentalist for Kent, Ohios lovable ne'aer-do-wells Beaten Awake, might be interested as well. Via three-way telepathic hook-up, Jamie and Jon discussed the plan with Stephen Clements, drummer for Akron, Ohios blustery train-wreck Houseguest, knowing, as they did, that few men were more skilled in the subtle science of feeling good. Now Patrick had four of his intended five. Four drummers, not drumming. Patrick would play bass, Jamie guitar, Jon would sing and play guitar, and Steve, keyboards. But, now, who would drum the drums? What of a band of four drummers, without a fifth to drum those drums? The answer appeared in a radiant fever vision, alighting gently upon all four brains simultaneously: the perfect fifth for this proposed super-group was Greg Boyd, late of Cincinnati, Ohio surf-rock band Ghostman & Sandman. Greg could and would hit those drums (and rhythmically, no less) without hesitation. Retreating to Patricks North Akron bunker, the band began writing furiously in the hopes of releasing a record before the next winter set in. Engineering the recording sessions was Ben Vehorn, whose credits include Love as Laughter, Licorice Roots, Houseguest, and Other Girls. What emerged were eleven songs of classic, feel-good rock, suitable for listening to while doing donuts with an 86 IROC in the Dairy Queen parking lot, or polishing off a six-pack on the local Par 3. The five members of Drummer are your kind of people, and their debut album, Feel Good Together, is your kind of music. It encapsulates the soul of Northeastern Ohio, where, whether in reference to local sports, the local economy, or just trying to find ones place in the world, the phrases almost, but not quite and better luck next time are applicable in perpetuity. But who cares? Not Drummer. If nothing else pans out, hopefully we can, at least, say we had a good time. Whatever you need to do, it can probably wait ‚til tomorrow. For now, put the record on, sit down, and lets just feel good. Together. Drummers debut album, Feel Good Together, will be available September 29th from Audio Eagle Records.
