Street Drum Corps

No…we don’t have any pictures.  Yes, we want them to visit New Orleans.    When I listen to their albums, and when I can stop make my head stop bouncing around long enough to think and break their spell, Street Drum Corps conjures up a strange mixture of images, all positive:  the guys sitting in back of public high school in New Orleans, beating Mardi Gras marching band rhythms on their desks before the teacher arrived.  Japanese drum corps, with perfect timing, but frankly not as much soul (and lacking a dumpster and propane tank).  St. Aug’s drums rolling down St. Charles Avenue.  And all of this on a hip hop binge.  The album is short but a must buy:

And you’ll completely understand why they included a DVD when you watch it.
