A to Z of Great British Rock: B is for Bronto Skylift

B is for Bronto Skylift

There are only 2 things that I really demand from a live rock band. One of these is good drumming. A mediocre band can be made fantastic purely by having a drummer who is expansive without being overbearing, ordinary songs can be made wonderful by a top drummer (hello Dresden Dolls). The other thing I demand, is a good quality understanding of half time. I’m not going to explain the intricacies of half time here, maybe I’ll do a whole post on it in the future, we’ll see. Bronto Skylift possess both of these attributes in healthy abundance. The drumming is fantastic, the half time is well placed. Live, thats enough to roast my lamb. So I’ll be seeing you chaps on the 21st in London. Wonderful.
