punk rock insiders, Mike Ciprari is best known for his Massachusetts-based
boutique company SPJ Custom Drums, whose sick, blinged-out kits appear onstage
with bands ranging from Gym Class Heroes and Every Time I Die to Miley Cyrus and
Lady Gaga. Now Ciprari’s moving from hardware into what the suits refer to as
the content business: he’s playing drums in THRASH UNREAL, a pop-punk band whose
hooks are as brazen and glammy as the infamous light-up kit Ciprari created for
Panic! at the Disco.
