Drums do sound different depending on what type of room they are recorded in. Think of those huge cavernous car garage drums on Flaming Lips records or the tightly tuned drums on a Joy Division record. I heard a rumor that Martin Hannett recorded Stephen Morris’s drums on the roof of the studio. But who knows. It could just be a myth! Either way, it’s all about the walls or lack thereof that can contain or let go of the sounds. And this video is nothing short of amazing.
