Re: andy ramsay appreciation thread!

Underrated player.

Live is always the best indicator of a good drummer's worth... the first thing that grabs you at a Slab gig is the drums and it doesn't let up. Rather inhibited on some of the mid-period latter albums by studio tomfoolery and the Chicago effect. Is that John McEntire playing all the drum parts on SoundDust? I really like the crisp, loud drum mix on First of the Microbehunters and Andy's tight but loose playing.

The inside-out "double-time" shuffle on Good is Me.

Tasteful accompaniment on Margerine Melodie.

Jazz-rock flourishes on the elongated fade out to Widow Weirdo.
