Paul Patko - Nintendo DS, GHAZM
As an active figure in the Vancouver music scene since his punk beginnings in high school, Paul has participated in a wide range of projects.
As a drummer he successfully supports singer-songwriters (Eden Fineday), post-folk acts (No Mothers), large metal orchestras (Opus Arise) and a list of projects that would make an impressive résumé should he choose to put one together. He won't. Mr. Patko favours stealth over spectacle.
It was Paul's unassuming explorations of the musical capabilities of the Nintendo DS that blipped GHAZM's radar. It is his poise in facing the challenge of integrating this instrument in a live band context that earns him respect.
He won't add this bio to a résumé.
