Anyone who has seen Drum Machine will know our sound, look and vibe are quite unmistakable.
For me, seeing Drum Machine for the first time, it felt like a soundtrack to a new beginning after the end of the world.
Primal, crazy, but joyous
I had never heard a sound like it
Live drummers all moving together
Like something out of a mad max rave scene
Some smiley, some mean.
Formation like a samba band but not samba
Their own genre
So funky and so tight
I couldn't work out where the sound was coming from
Or who was playing what.
Or whether they had real jobs.
Or whether this was their job
Were they even human?
They were so very cool.
I hadn't danced that hard for a long time
