Ryan McHale - Night Birds (drummer)

Night Birds Sick shit in 2k11

  1. Getting shitfaced in Finsbury park, London.- The Sex Pistols played their last show there, and it was filled with sketchy Turkish junkies. One of them saw my wiener when I was pissing. Daniel from Red Dons was our guide, he lives on the same street that The Equals are from, and the same area that The Kinks grew up in. We hopped a fence to get in.
  2. Last Days Here- The Bobby Liebling documentary. He is the main dude from Pentagram. See it, it's insane.
  3. Playing with Ex Humans and King Louie's missing monuments, and using John Bonham's old snare drum.-Tony from the great band Pretty Quick lent me out his snare drum for this show, he got it from John Bonham's old tour manager. It was a Ludwig Supraphonic, and the best snare I've ever played. Tony was on a couple GG Allin recordings, and one of my favorite drummers to date. I came out of a blackout that night, jacked as fuck, at some crazy night club on top of a water bed. Weird.
  4. Heavy Cream- One of my favorite new bands. They are from Nashville, and play awesome catchy punk shit. I'm always working whenever they play NYC, damn!
  5. Big Eyes-Hard Life- Great record, our homies. I love CJ.
  6. The fact that the world might end soon.
  7. NATUR getting signed to Earache.- Seriously some of the best people, one of the best bands. I have never been more stoked to hear a bands songs on wax before in my life.
  8. The Best Show On Earth- The power pop episode. The bible sized book written entirely about the song Shake Some Action by Flamin' Groovies. Power pop mountain.LOL!
  9. Smoking weed with Mike Hunchback in Amsterdam. A few hours after we landed in Amsterdam, me and Mike found weed. It was really cool watching all these huge blonde people zoom by on weird dutch bikes when you are stoned as hell. We were so jet lagged, it was glorious.
  10. New Beavis and Butthead- The new episodes have me peeing myself every time. Actually if I didn't already start writing this list, I would put this as number one.
