Max Feshback Straightahead

Max Feshbach Straightahead

By Leslie Hampton Published September 7, 2009

Band: Pteradon

Venue: Aug. 29th Nickel City, San Jose, CA

Either there is a shortage of good drummers in the Bay Area or Max Fesbach is in high demand. Besides Pteradon, Max's primary projects are Hard Girls and Classics of Love (featuring punk legend Jesse Michaels from Operation Ivy). He plays straight-up punk beats that can suddenly veer into complex rhythms. Max is high energy, even when his fingers are bleeding on the drum kit (see photo).


When not designing web pages, plonking her rare guitars or banging on her eBay drums, Leslie Hampton haunts northern California clubs and house concerts photographing musicians.
