‘Now for a Benny Goodman number!’



I don’t know what it is with the Germans and their desire to make music out of banging on things that originally were not designed as musical instruments. When I discovered AutoAuto!, of course, I had to think of everybody’s favourite unpronouncable Einstürzende Neubauten (which one of the AutoAuto! people claims to have played with in the past). No offense to the AutoAuto! crowd, but I think I personally prefer the real thing (here even with 100 members of the audience contributing), even though the bass player (who also bangs on the big blue can on the ground) reminds me of another one of my favourite pop culture characters (no, it’s not Buddy Rich).
