Morning Music Notes – One Drunk Driver Supporting Another
Back in September, I jetted down to Brooklyn to see the Thom Yorke-led Atoms for Peace. The band blew me away, with their thumping rhythms and Flea working his magic on bass. MTV filmed a performance of the band in Tokyo, Japan, so you can hear and see some of the awesomeness below.
The band tackle the UNKLE song Rabbit in Your Headlights, which originally featured Thom Yorke. The sombre song has a catchy piano part, with some excellent percussion in the live setting. Check out what you missed when the band didn’t come to Canada.
