One way to get warm


Despite the temperatures being barely above freezing on Saturday, the amazing Drum Machine were playing around Hebden Bridge as part of the floods fundraiser. I find the effect of the massed percussion really thrilling; you can feel it viscerally as well as hearing it. Quite extraordinary. For a video with sound, see the post I uploaded the first time I ever saw them - here. It's impossible to listen without picking up the beat - and jigging about is one way to keep warm!

  4. The sound reminds me of the odd steel drums band I've seen perform here.

  9. This looks great! So, with their deep reverberation, you were able to hear them? (That "Shoulder of Mutton" sign is so English!)
