I’ve never seen a small band with three drummers before…

Yes, it was good. Very intense and tribal feeling to it, with the three drummers pulsing along. The non-drummer (Eye) had some new tech I’ve never seen before. At the beginning and the end of the show he used these two handheld lights that acted as a user interface to make sound – something about their position and speed – each one triggering different effects – great to watch him swing these lights around in the dark. Mostly he was doing things with keyboards or this ‘scratching’ box that he had (not sure if it was manipulating an actual CD or more likely just a file), like a small turntable. Made me think that perhaps a Can show in the early seventies would have had a similar feeling.
