I've been teaching myself drums for a few years so I've spent a lot of time listening very closely to Jimmy and picking apart what he's playing. Its really rewarding to be able to notice new details with each listen and understand how he creates his slick, mercurial style. What are some of your favourite Jimmy drum parts?

When I'm getting warmed up on the kit I really love playing the intros to Doomsday Clock and That's the Way. At first I disliked the disjointed feel of the DC intro and I couldn't really get the rhythm of it but once you learn a part you sometimes realize that it can feel more satisfying to play than to hear it on a record. Its the unexpectedness of every other hit that gives it its power. For example, you expect it to end with 8 snare hits but there are only six, so it catches you off guard when the beat comes in. And the TTW intro is just smooth and classy. For the longest time I didn't hear that the snare hits were actually rolls, but when you start noticing that last roll and how it pairs with the kick buildup, your realize how subtly it lifts into the beginning of the song. Coming up with a good beat is one thing, but its the hidden layer of detail that sets Jimmy apart from other drummers.

^yeah man. that fuck you was straight-up satanic. love jimmy's little lol towards the camera.


i'm also pretty into the Solo HD video on youtube (i have the highest rated comment, heh) that one's interesting to me for the fact that its pretty much all tom work, but there's that one dirty hi hat slurp at 00:15 which i can't scrub out of my mind. its absolutely disgusting in the best possible way.

also, what is jimmy's most underrated drum track overall? in my opinion, it has to be Owed to Darryl, off the Complex album. the main beat is just genius and i've jammed that fucker for hours on my kit.

i know this has already been said and done and then again, but

a) that fuck you is getting me riled every single time, i finish watching that and i feel like im ready to fucking cut somebody's throat! best performance ever, of any song, by any artist that i've seen. and i think sp were a shit live band in their day (for the most part).

b) jimmy is right up there with this generation's most brilliant drummers. his drumming is so technical and musically oriented, without him sp could never exist

c) its too weird to watch those videos and be reminded all the sudden how much i loved this band, and how my monumental respect for them crumbled in the last 10 years

and lastly, isle - check out Gavin Harrison from porcupine tree. for sure one of the top 5 drummers in rock. the music is awful, but check out how he takes an awful song and drums so tastefully to it:

^watching that made me realize something. maybe a drummer is only as good as the song he's playing on allows him to be. porcupine tree is a band i have yet to check out properly, but that was a world-class performance, to be sure. the man can obviously play anything and pays just as much attention to the song's requirements as jimmy does. but ultimately, you can't polish a turd. the tune he was drumming to was uninteresting, rhythmically and melodically, so there's only so much he could do to improve it. sp's music is 100% emotional and captivating, and jimmy's style was created largely out of necessity, to suit the songs. maybe he's only as good as we think he is because he was working with the best songwriters?

completely agree on the polish a turd thing.
you should check out porcupine tree's in absentia album. they're not one of those bands whose each album is perfect but that album is a colossal masterpiece.

i think jimmy's greatness is that he knew how to compliment the already great songs bill used to write, and you never ever got the impression he was looking for those small spots to wank... he's always 100% in context of the song. if the song requires a groove that's virtually solid throughout the entire song (sacred+profane), if it requires going full balls out to give it some power (geek, etc), or even those songs where he comes up with a part that's absolutely irreplaceable and perfect for the song - tonight tonight.
for fuck's sake isle, you're getting me to go all patrick bateman on your ass.
jimmy's the bomb, b0lly out :)

also I feel like the drumming in Everlasting Gaze never gets enough love. The groove with the open-closed hi-hats during the verses is excellent fun to play and gives the tune a bit of swagger. Then everything over the last riff where he switches over to the ride bell is great.

Geek USA is prolly my favourite tune of his to play, but I also have great fun with Porcelina, SIYL, I Am One, some of the live version of By Starlight etc.

^i need to learn how to play like that. the man can do so much with so little.

it was actually interesting to see him play with such a minimal kit for once, it reminded me of my other favourite contemporary drummer, greg saunier of deerhoof. he usually uses just a beat-up snare, kick and crash hat (and half-broken sticks). but his playing is on another level, yet totally different to jimmy's. in fact i'd say greg has the most unique and eccentric style of any drummer i've ever heard. very jerky and spasmodic, yet somehow it keeps everything in time and he also breaks up time in a way you've never heard before.

Man....I've never seen such a spasmodic drummer before....not my cup of tea (his playing & everything else).
And by the way...he is not "keeping everything in time"...he's playing free.

aside from the sheer impressiveness of his musicianship, the best thing about that is the clear technical nous the guy has. how many drummers can speak to the particular frequency ranges of individual instruments, and what tweaking is necessary prior to performance for a drum to sit well in a mix? presumably bill doesn't have that deep appreciation for what makes a set of drum tracks work on record, or the teargarden material would sound a lot better

i actually seem to remember that on one of his 'confessions' he said that during the recording sessions for SD jimmy and butch vig would continuously argue about 'all sorts of drum nuances that fail to reach me as im a guitar player' or something to that extent. bill was a fine songwriter but he definitely had the sheer luck to land one of the best drummers ever to really lift his songs to the next level...

New themachinesomehow blog entry >>>

...The Pumpkins had just reunited with drummer Jimmy Chamberlin, and while there were rumors he was back with the band, the audience wasn't sure until Chamberlin sat down behind his kit and pounded out his signature intro to "I Am One."

"I'll tell you what, I've played a couple thousand shows in my life, and the sound that came out of that audience when they realized it was Jimmy on the drums was probably one of the top five moments that I've ever had on stage," says Corgan. "It was a complete joy, it was so beautiful."...

^yeah. i wonder if sp would have even been a success without jimmy.

as for butch vig, as a garbage fan i always wondered why he never really lets rip on the drums. he's been playing for probably about as long as jimmy, he's a very musical player but he's always kept his playing strictly pop oriented, i've never heard him playing anything showy or technical. i guess its not important but it would be cool to see what he can do.

Since this has morphed into a general drumming thread, I thought I'd put this out there... remember the Marked drummer, Ron Roesing? (self-proclaimed "original" drummer of SP) his projects over the years have been numerous but I always quite liked his playing on this song, Lapiz Lazuli by Suns of Neptune. It sounds like he was trying to emulate Jimmy's style somewhat, playing lots of subtle, nuanced fills around a minimalist guitar line. What do you think?

Meade wanted to help open the doors to a formal musical education and much-deserved recognition for Haffijy, and some of his musically gifted classmates as well. But the education part takes money. That’s when Meade hit upon the idea for an album. He started reaching out to his musical friends in the U.S. He’s hoping the guys he worked with on the recent Winter Boys 7-inch single — Jesse Tabish of Other Lives and Derek Brown of the Flaming Lips — will join in. He said his old friend, ex-Smashing Pumpkin Jimmy Chamberlin, has agreed to play drums on the album, and he’s invited former ex-Lone Justice lead singer Maria McKee to add her distinctive voice to the mix.

It goes without saying that Jimmy's drumming is a huge, huge part about why I enjoy listening to the pumpkins. It's just irritating when folks don't understand why I can't really get into a new drummer who can't even fill a quarter of the void in the sound that was left with jimmy. Then again, everyone else has their favorite aspects about sp, which I still can't seem to grasp. Trying to enjoy Oceania, but it just doesn't have that strong ingredient that really gives the music it's full power, and yes jimmy is a huge part of that. Too bad corgan had to write shitty songs when jimmy came back, and too bad he's writing some de net material now while jimmy isn't there to make those songs pure gold.

Btw machina era jimmy is monstrous.

$5,021 pledged of $17,000 goal
25 days to go >>>

Tyson Meade, frontman for Norman, Oklahoma glam-punk rock bands the Chainsaw Kittens and Defenestration, has announced plans to collaborate on a new album with high school and college students in Shanghai, China. This will be the first album in nearly 10 years for Meade, who has been living and teaching in Shanghai for the past 5 years.

Meade walked away from a fulltime career in the music business in 1996 (just briefly popping up here and there since that time) after feeling like his creative well had run dry. "I had lost my inspiration to write songs," he explains. "Maybe the fire was gone. Maybe I no longer thought of the process as being inventive or mysterious. Maybe I thought I was no longer doing this for the purity of music. For whatever reason, I stopped writing music."

For a complete change of focus and pace, Meade began teaching grammar to international students at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City. Shortly thereafter, Meade relocated to China, a country whose culture had always fascinated him. He settled in to a college prep position teaching at a boarding school and was eventually appointed Dean of Students there. He was incredibly moved by his experience as a teacher and slowly the desire to play and write music returned. One of his students in particular, a boy called Haffijy who played violin, was especially impressed with his teacher's musical past. "I played Haffijy some of my songs from my music days and he quickly wrote parts for them," Meade recalls. "Not only did he write parts, he played with such love and honesty that I was touched immeasurably. Birds chirped in some sort of Far East Disney way."

Meade was eager to explore a further musical collaboration with Haffijy. "I became very curious as to how he might score a song still in development, one that I had no preconceived notions about, one that I had just written -- though I had not written any songs in some years at that point," Meade says. "I was now driven to write a song."

The result was "Stay Alone" (listen here: http://tysonmeade.bandcamp.com/), which became the catalyst for the entire China project. Meade played the song for some of his Western music friends, including fellow Norman-based, alt-rockers the Flaming Lips (who covered the Chainsaw Kittens' "She's Gone Mad"), Jimmy Chamberlin of Smashing Pumpkins, Maria McKee, and Other Lives (Meade has previously collaborated with Other Lives’ Jesse Tabish and the Flaming Lips’ Derek Brown on a project called Winter Boys). After hearing “Stay Alone,” these friends became interested in being a part of this unique, cross-cultural project and have agreed to contribute to this record as well.

Meade will return to Shanghai this July and begin work with various high schools and universities both there and in the United States for the project. His goal is to write and record at least a dozen tracks, which he will release as an album next year. A series of live performances is also in the works.

"I lived in China for five years and every Chinese person that I ever encountered is wonderful," says Meade. "They love America and Americans and I would love for America to love them back. I want the people who hear this project to hear their jubilation for living and for mankind in general."

Tyson Meade is an American musician, painter, writer, and teacher from Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Meade has recorded more than a dozen critically acclaimed records for major and indie labels since 1984 with his bands Defenestration and the Chainsaw Kittens, whose 1991 debut SPIN magazine described as "The Smiths meets the New York Dolls meets the devil." He's also released records as a solo artist and has contributed songs to the soundtracks for “Hellraiser III,” “Clerks” and “Bug.”

SO: When the Smashing Pumpkins were at their peak, they did an interview and mentioned Chainsaw Kittens as one of their “three favorite bands”, and I remember thinking how rad that was. On the album you’re working on now, ex-pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin will contributing. Did you have a collaborative or close relationship throughout your time with the Kittens? How did he get involved with the new album?

Tyson: Over the years, Jimmy and I have stayed in contact. When I came upon this idea to do this record in China with students I immediately thought it would be the perfect chance to work with Jimmy because I have always loved his crazy awesome drumming.

Jimmy Chamberlin told attendees of a drum clinic in Chicago on Thursday night that he has left Skysaw, this the rock band he formed in 2009 with singer Mike Reina.

During the clinic, hosted by instrument retailer Chicago Music Exchange, Chamberlin demonstrated several drum parts from his repertoire, including the Smashing Pumpkins classics “Tonight, Tonight” and “Geek U.S.A.” along with a few Jimmy Chamberlin Complex numbers. Chamberlin also explained why the clinic had been rescheduled from a week earlier: He’d sliced his thumb while putting a mailbox together, badly enough to require treatment at a local emergency room.

Skysaw released one album, Great Civilizations, which in its final form went on sale during June 2011. A supporting tour comprised about 15 concerts.

>>>

YouTube description:

Jimmy explained that his drum part was inspired, in part, by Alex Acuña's drum beat on the Weather Report song "Birdland".

Immediately after playing this song Jimmy joked that it was, "a young man's game", stating that "Tonight, Tonight" was a really difficult drum part to play. He said Billy wrote the song in the morning and came in, and the drum beat just came together immediately that night.

Jimmy talked a lot about the "why" of drumming- how/why he came up with certain parts for songs. He talked a lot about the Pumpkins. In particular he played "Streetcrawler", "Tonight, Tonight", "Geek USA", and "Newerwaves".

Jimmy revealed that he was not meant to stay with the Smashing Pumpkins. He was supposed to only play their first Metro show with them and then go his own way and the band would find another drummer that "fit" better. Obviously it didn't work out that way though.

One anecdote I particularly enjoyed he told a guy ahead of me during the meet & greet afterwards. He stated that "Thru The Eyes of Ruby" was one of his favorite Mellon Collie songs, but Billy didn't initially want to put it on the album. Jimmy begged him to put it on but Billy said he didn't have any lyrics for it so he was just gonna leave it off. Jimmy urged him to go write the lyrics immediately, which he did, and it was on the album.

The only other thing of note I can really remember was Jimmy revealing that he mentors a few kids at his house and teaches them how to drum. He also stated that he was asked recently to go on tour for a big name (he didn't reveal who) but he turned it down because he likes to keep what he does pure and not just give it away. He'll play for friends if the stars align, but for the most part he doesn't guest a lot on people's tracks or join bands for that reason.

Chamberlin has been spotted at the Reelsounds Recording Studio in Chicago alongside Jazz Fusion Bass Master Percy Jones . Apparently laying down tracks for Saxophonist and 'modal rocker' Frank Catalano's latest album. According to Catalano's Yamaha Artist's page, this is a full album project with Jimmy Chamberlin.

In the next couple of months, Catalano will release the first of three recordings he made last year.

"Old Skool" pairs him with pianist Scott Williams in duo settings of jazz standards, such as "Bye Bye Blackbird" and "Our Love is Here to Stay," plus an original homage to one of Catalano's heroes, Von Freeman: "Blues for Vonski."

After that will come a duo CD with the inimitable Chicago drummer Paul Wertico and a trio album with former Smashing Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin and Brand X bassist Percy Jones, which promises to be a high-powered, high-energy affair.

"It's definitely a jazz album," says Catalano of his partnership with Chamberlin and Jones. "Yeah, Percy has played on Brian Eno records, and Chamberlin with the Smashing Pumpkins, obviously, but they're such good players in a jazz setting too.

"I knew it would be a powerful trio, but it has ballads also."

I'm sure it doesn't sound as weird from where Jimmy's sitting, although he probably only had Billy's voice and guitar piped through his monitor. There aren't any monitors pointing at where the camera guy is.

Well not only that but the majority of the amplification from the stage is directed straight out into the crowd. Obviously the mic, being where it was, is going to exaggerate that effect.

- 8/31/2013 9:30 PM


Platinum-selling saxman and long time friend of Andy's Jazz Club, Frank Catalano has assembled an amazing super group for the Chicago Jazz Festival Weekend.

Catalano joins forces with drum virtuoso Jimmy Chamberlin of Smashing Pumpkins fame, and legendary Brand X bassist, Percy Jones. Their performance at Andy's Jazz Club will feature jazz standards, powerhouse originals, as well as some Coltrane and Tupac. Several Jazz Fest performers have asked to sit in as well so this will truly be a must see show full of surprises.

Catalano, Chamberlin and Jones recorded together earlier this year with special guest guitarists Chris Poland and Bill Frisell, an album that should be out in spring 2014. They will be debuting some of their recently recorded material this weekend throughout their gigs at Andy's Jazz Club.

Showtimes: 9:30pm-10:45pm & 11:15pm-12:30am
Admission: $15
