Title: Drumb
Post by: PorcoRosso on January 10, 2014, 07:36:34 PM
I half assededly looked for a topic about  it but only found snippets.

I keep meaning to get one of these to check it out.
Is it worth it?
I imagine it would be.
But there is just so much coming out all the time , it seems to get bumped down the to buy list all the time.
What says you ?

Two tracks

Forwards
Backwards

Both are drums and noise tracks.  The vinyl is a awesome looking purple.  I got mine at Amoeba in San Francisco back in 96 or so I think.  Definitely worth picking up.

A similar version is on the album Flyin' Traps, which is a compilation album of songs by drummers from various alt rock bands which is pretty great actually. The song is called Vomit and Orange Juice and listening to them both now they're in a similar vein but are a little different from one another, maybe its an outtake from the same session?

Score extra points for getting the single AND the fanzine.

that is pretty much my sentiment as well.
though that dumb numbers thing wasn't my cup of tea,
so thought I would hear y'all's opinion.

Again, one of the many Sevens I left behind with the Ex...I Was going to Cry, but I Drink instead and bottle up my emotions and let them out at an in-opportune time.

This wasn't released with a fanzine.   Dales zine, and this, two different things.

It's really just one track, the other track is just the song backwards.

Still sounds just as cool backwards.

Plus there is another Version of DRUMB that Ive heard besides forwards and backwards, Wish I could get my man-hands on that one, it was HUGE. I believe we discussed it back a page...

Are you referring to the Flyin' Traps compilation?   Came out in '97, theres a Dale Crover track called Vomit & Orange Juice, which is a slightly faster & longer version of "Forwards"

I am guessing this must have been recorded during the Stoner Witch sessions?

Hm, It's a mans Ruin release so...hmm.

It could have been, but you'd think they'd breach with Atlantic to put it out through a different label like with Prick.
