Back when I was a freshman in high school while living in Simsbury, Connecticut some friends of mine and I formed a "basement band" called "The Cloudmen".

Rick O'Brien and Greg Kunicki played guitar, I played the drums, and Bill DeMallie played the tomato cans. Bill didn't really have any musical training but we wanted him to be part of our group so he used a spare pair of my drum sticks to belt out some rhythms on the cans.

So, we had a unique percussion section.
