Kim Dae Hwan could be be the first drummer in Korea who insisted on forging his own path.

Kim was a member of Korean rock legend Shin Jung Hyun"s original rock combo, Add4. He also contributed to a 1970 live album entitled "In-A-Kadda-Da-Vida" as a member of Shin Jung Hyun and Questions.

By 1972, he"d formed his own band, The Kim Trio and released "Drum! Drum! Drum!," an album of rhythmically agile and stylistically broad psych-pop.

"Drum! Drum! Drum!" shares many qualities with many albums released in this sweet era of psychedelic exploitation, a smattering of opportunistic covers, fuzzed-out guitar and a recurring, ever-so-sensual flute solo. But Kim"s personality as a drummer shines through the clichés.

The record"s first side opens with a laudable attempt at The Zombies" "Time of the Season," but an even better gauge of Kim"s taste comes at the close of the second side
