Whiplash main pic

“Were you rushing or were you dragging…?”

In our first ever episode we explore Damien Chazelle’s 2014 drama Whiplash. The film stars Miles Teller as Andrew Neiman, an ambitious young jazz drummer, and JK Simmons as Fletcher, his passionate but abusive instructor.

As well as discussing the film, we also talk to an actual real-life jazz drummer about his feelings towards the movie, and Paul demonstrates his drumming prowess on his 6 year old daughter’s drum kit. After all, anyone can play the drums – right?

Meanwhile, Andy highlights a favourite but often forgotten drumming scene from the 1941 movie Ball of Fire featuring the legendary “Gene” Krupa.
