The concept was pretty simple. Take a bike and turn it into a drum kit. It sounds simple enough. But who would actually think of doing such a thing? David Osborne’s traveling drum kit takes about 20 minutes to transform from a bicycle into a… drum kit bicycle. The kit contains 5 cymbals, 3 snare drums and a foot pedal.
Arriving in London from Australia, with no car and no drums, Osborne’s funky white boy beats couldn’t be held back by such diversions. His drum kit is made of bowls found in a cheap charity shop, children’s toys and vintage drums. The whole set fits in two bags and a back pack. The beat is now mobile!
