Punctuality: A very important quality of the band, especially during the late 1960s, and one of the characteristics that most impressed director Marty DiBergi. The exception has been the bands drummers, especially the Shrimptons. By 1992, Derek had even taken to making jokes about the situation: "How do you know a drummers knocking on the door? The knock slows down." "Do you know why God made drummers smarter than horses? So they wouldnt shit on the parade route." (ME) See Electric Banana.
