It's a tough set for us drummers, I wouldn't want to be in a car with me tonight with all the sweat and smells, but it's a very high energy and fun set too.

What do you reckon?

Can you name all the original artistes?

Good stuff! was 'Molly's Chamber' re-done by metallica and called 'Whiskey in the Jar'? or is it a completely different song?

Rhythmic Diaspora said...

Whackster - No, Molly's Chambers is a Kings Of Leon song, an early one. Whiskey in the Jar was originally a Thin Lizzy song that Metallica covered a few years back. Thin Lizzy's was in fact a new arrangement of a traditional Irish folk song.

I know this as Thin Lizzy are one of my all time favourite bands and their former drummer, Brian Downey is one of the chaps who inspired me to start playing. Sorry for the long answer

TheWhacksteR said...

Cool. thanks. remember me when you play 'rebel yell' man, i love that song! cheers

ViceUnVersa said...

Oh dearie me. The only song I identify is 'I predict a riot'.
Similar song list for Saturday? Should I make a quick stop on the way at Camden Town and get me a baggie first I wonder?
Lollipop!

Rhythmic Diaspora said...

DD - Yes, similar, but I'm sure you'll enjoy it. You'll recognise most of them, even at your age!

By title alone, I think I can identify the artistes of 17 out of the 28 songs...I suppose that's not too bad no? I'd probably recognise a few of the others if I heard them.

And omg you're playing Take Back the City, Molly's Chambers and Starlight...I ♥ you.

is that creep by radiohead?

Rhythmic Diaspora said...

Pseudo - you should come and see us if you're in London.

T - Very definitely yes!

T said...

sach said...

Hmmm..i can see snow patrol (i'm surprised N didn't beat me to it), bowie, u2, greenday? - are you playing at a high school prom?!, the killers, Muse, Stereophonics (yay), Kravitz

Rhythmic Diaspora said...

T - That may be coming soon, watch this space.

Sach - Not a prom, it was a charity fundraiser thing, was a good night all round.

PseudoRandom said...

Damn I can't believe I didn't register Creep as being Radiohead. That's disgraceful.

Coming to see you guys sounds like an awesome idea, RD! I do visit London quite regularly (once a month-ish). Do you have a regular venue?

Have a good Friday! :-)

Rhythmic Diaspora said...

Pseudo - We have a couple of places we play regularly and I'll let you know when the next one is coming up for sure. Have a nice Friday too
