Newcastle’s Kye Smith needs a rooftop in Merewether to shoot his next Drum Chronology

The guy behind those amazing Drum Chronology videos is Newcastle’s Kye Smith. You may also remember Kye from his stint behind the drum kit for Aussie legends, Frenzal Rhomb. Well anyway, Kye is looking for a rooftop in Merewether to shoot his next Drum Chronology, and we think someone out there can help.

“I want to shoot somewhere iconically Newcastle” Kye told Newcastle Live.

“I’m thinking maybe something like up the top of Scenic Drive or Hickson Street in Merewether, looking out over the city. Would be unreal if someone up the top of the hill would let us setup on their roof”.

If you think you’ve got a rooftop to suit, email Kye at

Kye’s 5 Minute Chronology series aims to cover a band’s entire career in 5 minutes using snippets of their work from their inception until now. One of Kye’s latest videos, AC/DC: A 5 Minute Drum & Guitar Chronology, features Lindsay McDougall on guitar and was shot in a sub station. So we can’t wait to see what this new shoot will produce.
