To mark the release of slightly melancholy but still damn poppy New York via Florida quartet The Drums’ debut album The Drums (OUT NOW), we thought we might introduce you to them, AND, four other bands that share their name with an inanimate object. We know we know, amazing idea. Like putting a little bit of chocolate in a chilli con carne. Hey ho, let’s go:

1/ The Drums

2/ Television

3/ Pavement

4/ Spoon

5/ Wire

Great scenes.
