Well, don’t take it for granted, but it really seems that in a few months the first Parafulmini‘s (Lightning Rods) recording will be released. Featuring: Marco Bigliazzi (me) on drums, Stefano Masoni on electric guitar (and trumpet) & Luca Rossi on electric bass. The title is still unknown – it could be Tenere Fuori Dalla Portata Dei Bambini (Keep Out Of Reach Of Children). Release date, around Fall 2015. Stay tuned for more.
Okay, here is another little post about drums, with a shot of me playing my drumset live recently (december 19) with my ban Parafulmini (Lightnin’ Rods).
As I have already written on some older posts, today I play drums with the band Parafulmini. While I use the computer to compose and write music, when it comes to play drums are definitely my favorite instrument. In this little picture above, there’s me in the background and a small drum in the foreground. It may seem a big drum, because of the shot, but it’s actually a 6″ (15 cm) diameter Ludwing tom tom (informations for drummers) and I really love the sound of this hi-pitched one. I have two of them, one 5″ and a half and the other 9″ deep, and you can see them on the left of the set in the shot below.
This is short movie I concocted in a few spare time fragments at the animation studio. It is made up on a little composition of mine, Fools In Boots, here played by a cheesy MIDI sequencer.

Well, on the blog of Parafulmini (Lightnin’ Rods) toon-rock band (where I proudly play drums and write music) I eventually translated in english an old post of mine, titled as this one you are reading right now: NO More Cover bands Anymore.
Or maybe you actually like cover bands?
