AFAIK it's international to clap on one, two, three and four today. It
seems to be very common to have a Kick on one, two, three and four.
Perhaps it's to enable so called musicians, to play the Bass in unsion
with the Kick. The Snare still is needed for dramaturgy, no modern so
called music without a drum roll.
I'm unable to listen to so called music played by the radio or
television. Even if they would play music, repeating the same 15 songs
over and over would make it boring.
This kind of business isn't for chart bullshit only. "Germans need ...",
resp. if you e.g. are a gifted Jazz musician booking is easier, if your
skin is black. The reason isn't less or more talent. Selling music does
mean to sell a lifestyle, sexuality etc..
It's not the snare that is annoying, it's that today music can't be sold
anymore and that instead just hype is sold.
Not only the playing of the snares today is "Ausdruck vom Sinn
befreit" (Schlingensief) "expression ridded of meaning".
