Drums and Tuba Battles Olé

Drums and Tuba have made a leap from being an instrumental sonic assault to rock song art headbanging. Not your three-minute whine, however, but a full on series of blasts combining vocals that are weirdly reminiscent of John Lydon at his most Rotten, heavy rock riffage and interludes of experimental noise. The average song length is about eight minutes, which gives plenty of leeway for the band to stretch out. There’s definitely a prog influence here but it doesn’t wander too far into the cheese zone. More like Sabbath on a bad run in with Funkadelic via Flanger. All over the map? You bet. Does it work? Yes. (Righteous Babe)
