Taipei Houston drummer Myles Ulrich explained why his father Lars (drummer of Metalliclisten)) avoided getting involved in his musical education.

The Taipei Houston line-up also includes Layne Ulrich, Myles’ brother, and the two recently gave an interview to guitar world.

In this interview, Myles says: “Honestly, when I started [à jouer de la batterie]he walked away completely. He said to me: ‘Go and do it with your friends or get a drum teacher’. Not because he didn’t want to do it himself, but because he wanted us to find our own paths musically, which is really cool and that’s what we tried to do.”

“I don’t even know if he gave us a little advice at some point. We both started getting into music in our own ways, listening to bands like Arctic Monkeysstuff like that…”

Later, Layne adds: “I really started around 12 or 13 years old. I was taking lessons when I was much younger, but it didn’t really work out. It was in my early teens that I started to really get interested in it and the bass was my first instrument, or at least the first that I took seriously. It was a good way for me to get interested in music.”

“I started out playing the Arctic Monkeys and Rage against the machinebut also music like funk and soul. The bass was a great instrument for me, through which I was able to get into music and learn to be creative on my own.”

In a previous interview for the radio station Rock 95.5, Lars gave his opinion on the musical project of his sons.

He stated : “Well, obviously, I’m proud. I’m glad they’re doing well. What they create is cool.”

He continued: “At the same time, we have a very open and transparent relationship, and definitely a few times along the way I’ve said things could be better. So I don’t just say, ‘Oh my God! You are awesome’. I may even have offered too much constructive criticism – sometimes. I’m not sure of it.”

Lars said his sons’ project was formed during the second half of the pandemic and took about a year to come to fruition: “They spent a lot of time working hard, but eventually found their own sound. And I think it’s very original.”

Taipei Houston’s debut album, Once Bit Never Bored, is available now via C3 Records.
