As a child Andy Powder would find himself captured by the presence of sound. His first music lessons came from a crazed neighbor, Ed, who was infamous around town for having a screw loose. As he listened to his schizophrenic neighbor rant through music theory and history lessons, Andy soon learned guitar from Ed. He watched this madman eccentric become something otherworldly as he played any number of his instruments. Powder was not far behind; mimicking the noises by mouth, and pantomiming the art of playing. Not long after Ed had noticed Andy’s interest in music, Powder saved up enough money to by his first guitar. With the help of his neighbor and friends he would soon learn the beginning steps of what would be become his life’s focus.
The Drips are Taylor Harrington on Bass and James Rogers on drums, and when they get behind Powder it sounds something like 50's Rock & Roll dressed up with noise and gimmickry. However; to really understand Andy Powder & The Drips, you need to see a show!!!
