The Vines @ Bearsville Studios June 2003

I had the pleasure of being the drum tech on The Vines 2003 release "Winning Days" which was one of the last albums recorded at the legendary Bearsville Studios in Woodstock, NY. Producer Rob Schnapf (Elliot Smith, Beck) helmed the project and Hamish Rosser played the many kit permutations we assembled (We used my 1930's 26" WFL kick drum {above} on a couple of tunes as well as a 1970's Gretsch kick) . A great time was had by all in the bucolic Catskill setting and the song "Ride" has shown up everywhere from an iPod commercial to a national ad campaign for Toyota.
That's singer Craig Nicholls on the bike.
