The drums were heavily padded with toilet paper... HEAVILY! we tried gels, wallets, tape. The toilet paper was the winner. the sound is awesome. a real throwback to a beatlesesque type of drum sound that is just pumping and gritty.

Although the Beatles were part of the English "Rocker" movement, they were by no means a proper rockabilly band.
