Dale Crover - Drumb 7"

I know some dude requested this here about a year ago...pretty much no one has a rip of this, so this is my christmas present to him and all of you.

This is Dale Crover's only legit solo release. It was released back in '96 with somewhere around 200-500 copies I'm pretty sure. Side A is Drums and Noise (Four Words), while Side B is Side A backwards (Sdraw Kcab). I ripped the record at both 45RPM and 33RPM, as I wasn't sure which was the right speed...but it sounds a hell of a lot more evil at 33. Included with the download are complete scans of the front, back, and inlay of the sleeve, as well as a scan of Dale's short-lived minizine "Drumb" (props to themelvins.net).

Dale Crover - Drumb 7"

Excerpt from Dale's Drumbzine:

Q: What has three legs and an a**h%!$ on top?
A: A drum throne.

Q: How do you know when a drummer is at the door?
A: The knock speeds up.
A: When you say come in, he comes in late.
A: By the domino's uniform.

Q: A drummer who can keep time, A drummer who can't keep time, and Santa Claus are walking down the street. A $50 bill blows by. Who gets it?
A: The drummer who can't keep time. The other 2 do not exist.


Enjoy and have a good christmas/break/whatever the fuck
