Japanese drummer Shoji Hano completely blew me away last night at a Now Now gig in the Big Room, Newtown. Playing a blistering solo set, his intensity, passion, power and technique left me a little deaf but happy. Check out his website www.shojihano.com. Two laptop acts followed him – one a duo comprising Ben Byrne and Ivan Lysiak playing choppy crunchy sounds, the other Gilles Aubry from Berlin playing field recordings overlaid with some pretty harsh and torturous drones.
