Kiri Schroeter Tears Through the Drums to a Structure Song with No Hands or Feet

Playthrough Monday, an unofficial holiday I’ve just now created because not much other gear news happens on President’s Day, is topped off by this awe-inspiring video that I just stumbled upon. Structures songs usually aren’t the easiest to play anyway, but Aussie youngster Kiri Schroeter pounds through the drum parts to “Hydroplaning” without hands or feet. He was born without them, but fuck if this kid was going to let that stop him.


Take a look at the video below, and if you’re so inclined you may also want to give a listen to his band Briarcliff, or maybe head to Kiri’s YouTube channel where he also covers a Black Dahlia Murder tune.
