We love drummers, well, we did till we met a few flakey ones who went off mountain biking and skating at the last minute when they were supposed to come rehearsing with us...
It's in the honnour of these nature-cycling-drum lovers that the name "green drummers" was born, having met Tony who liked mountain biking too much. But oh, was he sexy. And he had a nice car. And a nice van. Ah, who needs drummers?
as they do Green Drummers propaganda

Green Drummers is :
--Claude Pechabadens, singer, keyboard player and song writer, 
--Casio PT30, faithful and forever a companion and
--Korg Triton, a bit bad tempered studio ingeneer
-- Sony DSP Minidisc player, replacing Sanyo
--Electric Guitar Aria
--Distortion Pedal Boss
--new Violin (damn I need to make a song with it)

--Neil, sound ingeneer and roadie.

The mixing is done by Neil Anderson and Green Drummers.

The music can be classified as "ironic pop" but Green Drummers can also makes sad depressing music.

 

Life stories: Claude was born in Cahors, South-West France, and raised on a farm (from here comes her love for chickens). She left for England when she was 18, and was part of a rock band for a couple of years, as a keyboard player. She then left the band to express her creativity and made her first song, "Only you" as a send up of today's pop music.
