Beating a rhythm out on found objects is as old as the caveman hitting stumps and stones with a stick.
The modern equivalent is prominent in industrial music, although not exclusive to that.
I kinda prefer the clunky sound of hitting a piece of scrap metal over commercially sold cymbals.
Well, except the high-hat.
High-hats are kinda cool.
There seemed to be more groups that did stuff like this, twenty or thirty years ago; Cop Shoot Cop, Pussy Galore, Skeleton Key, Doo Rag, Tchkung!, etc..
I haven’t seen as many like that in a long time.
I would like to include it in my little bag of magic tricks, too.
So far, few people seem to enjoy doing it… except me.
I am slowly rebuilding a new and IMPROVED ShitKit, incorporating found junk as well as electronics and contemporary drums.
It may take me awhile.
