Tom Tom #15: Drummers Who Sing

by Mindy Abovitz

The magazine that solely focuses on women drummers brings the world drummers who sing! Always refreshing and exciting, this issue features Fred Armisen (another drummer!) charmingly interviewing Janet Weiss of Wild Flag / Quasi / Sleater-Kinney, plus Samantha Maloney of Hole / Motley Crue, Kate Schellenbach of Luscious Jackson / Beastie Boys, Scarlett Fever of Sam Cisco, Tina Sugandh of Tabla Girl, Morgan Doctor of The Clik, world news in drumming, a guide to drumming in Nashville, some new techniques, album, book, film, and gear reviews, and so much more! This issue has a particularly international flair, even for Tom Tom, who generally does a good job of leaving the U.S. Punk has taught us: You can do that too and have fun in the process, especially if you're queer or a woman or have a powerful message or example to display in another way! Because, as each of our experiences could probably dictate, the kinds of people you see on the metaphorical stage of life seem to either open or close doors respectively. And Fred interviewing Janet is hilarious, of course.
