GRIND ORCHESTRA played the best show I've seen them play yet at Fandango. If all goes well, the recording from this show will be live album. This makes me happy because although I like the Jolly Throats EP, and the SoWap CD, they just don't compare to seeing Grind Orchestra live. The show began a bit sedate as the band was being careful to do everything right, but they couldn't contain for long the energy and relaxed chaos that make their shows so great. At least 4 drummers, lots of vocalists, lots of percussion instruments, sequencing, noise, theremin, moments of heavy electric guitar and plenty of other instruments all made appearances. Old black and white movies and strange patterns were projected on the band as they played.
