"What lions live for"
Jon Theodore wins my 2011 ‘stop you in your tracks award’ for live sound after seeing him with One Day As a Lion at Soundwave. Almost fell to my knees. Never had I heard drums sound so good live. I could have listened to those stainless steel Ludwigs all week.
One Day As a Lion have no guitarists and no bassman (at least not since they made comments like “Hey Zack I think I read somewhere that Che Guevara was dead or something?”). The stripped back format won’t be to everyone’s taste but I loved it. Don’t think that live sound was properly captured in the recording though.
Decide for yourself - ‘Ocean view’ by One Day As A Lion.
