Just saw an amazing band

  1. They're called Particle, and they're gonna be huge. They play a mixture of jam-band funk and Euro-disco, and they go long. I think I was dancing with this one girl for at least 45 minutes, maybe an hour--and that was only two songs.

    The bassist plays a Thumb BO 5 through an SWR Bass 750 pushing a Goliath III and an SOB, and uses a ton of effects. His tone wasn't really that great, but his groove was killer.

    Watch out for Particle when they come to your town. They're playing the Knitting Factory in NYC tomorrow and Thursday night, IIRC.
  2. I'm checking out some of their stuff now -- quite good indeed!
