Oh Holy Night
Happy Hollandaise! (1995)
brake drum played with short copper pipes, bass, 12 stg guitar, guitar, Civil Defense water storage barrel, samba whistle
I found a nice brake drum on Milam St. under the I-45 overpass in downtown Houston. For this recording, I suspended the brake drum and beat on it with foot-long pieces of 1/2" hard copper pipe. I also used a steel water storage drum taken from a fallout shelter in Dallas. I wrote the arrangement in a Mayonaisian Island groove to feature the percussion.
