Forbidden Beat: Perspectives on Punk Drumming | S W Lauden
In Forbidden Beat, some of of today's most respected writers and musicians explore the history of punk percussion with personal essays, interviews, and lists featuring their favourite players and biggest influences. From sixties garage rock and proto-punk to seventies New York and London, eighties hardcore and D-beat to nineties pop punk and beyond, Forbidden Beat is an uptempo ode to six decades of punk rock drumming.
Inside Lauden talks to, among others, Lori Barbero (Babes in Toyland), Tré Cool (Green Day), Mike Watt (Minutemen), and Rat Scabies (The Damned). Elsewhere John Robb talks about British punk, Eric Beetner discusses DC Hardcore and Post-Punk, and Mindy Abovitz drums up love for Riot Grrrl.
