Jonathan Pierce and Jacob Graham met at summer camp. It wasn't until 2006 that they started THE DRUMS. There were other band names, but this is the one, so simple and true, like modern and edgy beach boys. THE DRUMS is an experimental band from San Francisco featuring John Dwyer (of Coachwhips, Pink & Brown, Thee Oh Sees) on drums and Anthony Petrovic (Ezee Tiger, Gay Barbarians) on drums. But they are more than just drums.
