I recently listened to a Radioplay from Germany of "Die Korperfresser." This was a radio remake of Jack Finney's 1954 classic: "The Body Snatchers". The music was composed by Georg Zeitblom with Achim Faerber on drums. The drum he used is his main snare for virtually almost all of his work: The Beier 1.5 Steel--5.5 x 14. Georg & Achim are also two of the three members of one of Germany's most heralded electronic music projects: Automat.

I really enjoy Radioplay's, and I wish there were more in North America. They seem to be a thing of the past....At least for now. From a production & musical standpoint, they can be very intense, dark, and/or dramatic. If you love music & a particular instrument....These are great to tune into.

Achim can be found on the music scene in Germany, & almost anywhere in the world actually! He is the drummer for Eisbrecher, one of the three simultaneous drummers for Project Pitchfork, is the touring and recording drummer for Prag, Peter Heppner, Automat, Danny Dziuk, and others. He is widely regarded as one of the premier talents in Europe, and is also a great friend. He also will be starting with #1 of a new drum I am just finishing here. That will be in the Latest News here very soon.

Thank You Achim!
