Artist INTERVIEW: IOISH

1. Cru Cru Shantanu, super nice to have the chance to chat with you! What first got you into drums/ music?

2. What’s your favorite drummer of all time? What's the BEST drummer of all time?

3. Have you seen that old lady on tik tok playing double drums and explaining the tempos???

4. I absolutely adore adore Green's drum style on Modest Mouse early albums and Patrick Wilson's harshness on "Pinkerton"! Do you also have some picks where the drums give a special identity to the record?

5. Have you seen the movies: "Whiplash" or "The Sound of Metal"?

6. I'm a goalkeeper. It's a really underapreciated position! Do you feel the same about the drums? I mean, usually people have the name of the singer and / or the guitarist in the tip of their tongue, but never the drummer...

8. Is it true that drummers are always hitting on soemthing with their fingers on their day to day?

9. Enough about drums, will you tell us something embarassing about you?

10. Do You agree with the Pigeon?


1. Cru Cru Shantanu, super nice to have the chance to chat with you! What first got you into drums/ music?

Hello! Thanks, likewise! I got into music and drums as a hobby over the summer holidays while I was in school.

Becoming a musician wasn't the plan!


2. What’s your favorite drummer of all time? What's the BEST drummer of all time?

Aah, that's tough. Can't pick one but here's a few that inspire me - Tony Williams, Elvin Jones, Bill Stewart, Marcus Gilmore, Ari Hoening, Tomas Haake, Steve Gadd, Jeff Porcaro, Ash Soan, Vinnie Colaiuta, Dave Weckl, Mark Guiliana, Jojo Mayer, Zach Danziger, Dafnis Prieto, Dave King, Magnus Ostrom, Bernard Purdie, John Bonham, Danny Carey, Steve Judd, Rafael Barata, Jim Keltner, John JR Robinson, Questlove, Karriem Riggins, David Garibaldi, anybody whole played with James Brown. Many many more, any good musician is a source of inspiration!


3. Have you seen that old lady on tik tok playing double drums and explaining the tempos???

I have not, I am not on the TikTok😅. New to social media!


4. I absolutely adore adore Green's drum style on Modest Mouse early albums and Patrick Wilson's harshness on "Pinkerton"! Do you also have some picks where the drums give a special identity to the record?

Tool - Lateralus (Danny Carey changed the game on this one!)

Allan Holdsworth - Secrets (Vinnie Colaiuta took no prisoners on this)

Led Zeppelin - II and IV

The Police - Regatta de Blanc and Zenyatta Mondatta


5. Have you seen the movies: "Whiplash" or "The Sound of Metal"?

I've seen Whiplash. 😖. Did not like it haha. Too scared to watch The Sound of Metal!


6. I'm a goalkeeper. It's a really underapreciated position! Do you feel the same about the drums?

I mean, usually people have the name of the singer and / or the guitarist in the tip of their tongue, but never the drummer...

All good musicians know and agree with that nice quote Dave Grohl had about drummers!


8. Is it true that drummers are always hitting on soemthing with their fingers on their day to day?

Haha I don't know, but it sounds about right!


9. Enough about drums, will you tell us something embarassing about you?

I accidentally hit myself in the eye with drumsticks while playing. Twice. Same eye. Same show. Everybody noticed. Both times. Even the bartender.


"What You Need It For" is a post rock and math rock piece with boldly impressive avant - garde textures and many other elements from different genres that are constantly testing my limits and overcoming my brain barriers, just like "Ants From Up There". It is a piece that gets progressively more intense, even reaching the status of sounding bigger than life itself! The drums establish an extraordinary alternative symbiosis in every way (especially when it comes to building up and releasing tension) with the distorted guitars in this absolutely epic cinematic musical journey!


The Pigeon added the new single to his Weekly Gems playlist on Spotify.
