FRIDAY REWIND Wk 9: "The Body" by Osker

On February 2, 2018, I launched a new series called, "Friday Rewind," where I performed a cover of a song I either recorded and/or played live at some point in my drumming career. Every week for 25 weeks straight, I released a blast from the past. From totally obscure musical acts, to some a few of you might've actually heard.

The playlist predates this current website, so I thought I would repost these here so there's an easy way for viewers to check it out. I tried to release the videos in chronological order but some bands overlapped others, and when I started I wasn't exactly sure how I was going to execute the whole thing, so some of the videos have no particular order to them.

Welcome again to a review of my Friday Rewind series where I released a video each week chronicling my playing days as a working drummer. This week features, "The Body," a song from the Epitaph Records 2001 release, Idle Will Kill by the band Osker. As I explain in the opening, I was originally the drum tech for the album but ended up recording 5 songs and touring with them before they ended up disbanding. I hope you like it:
