... we realised their drum kits were big plastic paint buckets lodged between their knees, they were really incredible, would love to have heard them playing on a real drum kit they would have been amazing, by the look of the third paint bucket standing on the road next to them they probably had enough money in it to buy a drum kit each and have money left over.
