Just got back from SIL2K and the boys ROCKED! They played about six 'songs', all of them instrumental. Rob played some cool texural parts and big, chiming notes, constrasted with short blasts of noise. Some parts had surf-guitar twang to them. Stu and Kevin pretty much drove the thing but there were times one or the other would fall out, almost like a dub. Stu's minimal drumming was really impressive. I played with the guy for years and he was definitely into some new territory. Mogwai, Sigur Ros & Kinski all got mentioned, but this was way cooler. Much less forced and jazzy.
The fellas got something like 2 minutes of applause after the set. James recorded it, so hopefully he'll burn a copy for me!
