Brian St. Clair

Zoo Drumming

Local H guitarist Scott Lucas and new drummer Brian St. Clair are not about trend following. In fact, the Chicago-based duo are bringing back some good ol’ raw-energy rock on their new record, Here Comes The Zoo, produced by the legendary Jack Douglas. “I think the kids will appreciate it,” Brian quips. “We didn’t want the record to sound like any of the current rap/rock. We recorded live in a big open room. The whole idea for the drum sound was to be like Back In Black—you know, how on the whole album, the drums have one basic sound, not different kits or drums. I think it will be refreshing for people who want to hear a rock record.”
