LIVE: Sly & The Family Done - www.myspace.com/slythefamilydrone
This was one of the most unique performances we've seen in a while. Utilising a three person drum kit and speaker stack, Sly & The Family Drone reduce music to it's bare essentials, a primal orchestra of drum rhythms and drone noise. Their reductionist take on music is literal, they split their drum kit to it's singular base units, passing individual drums and snares to the audience who maintain the beat while they free themselves for more noise and freestyle mayhem. Their show unfolds like a temporal art narrative on entropy. In the beginning they start physically in space as a tight musical unit of drums and speakers, a high pitched whine fills the air, layers of noise and distorted vocals slowly fill the room and the percussion starts to find it's beat. Then they beat the rhythms structured and regular seemingly into forever, until, eventually everything starts to breakdown into chaos and noise. By the end of their set their drums and equipment are scattered, the remains of their music lying bare across the floor - pixadelica 2009

They're young, they're mighty, they're a fuzzed out scattering of seeds in the wilderness, mere saplings but they'll take your heart, your tears and your eardrums away with them.
