Haven’t had a chance to catch local band The Animators live yet? Well, here’s what you’ve missed.
Led by Drouin man David Cuthbertson, The Animators has had success with commercial radio plays and gigs across the country. The band has a reputation for its excellent studio albums and live acts.
The Animators recently played at The O&H and Tonicfest in Warragul. At the latter the band ended its set with a cover of Radiohead’s Everything In Its Right Place – a regular feature of its sets in its early years.
Using a loop pedal, Cuthbertson starts the song by punching his microphone to provide a beat which he then sings and plays keyboard over.
It’s only in the last minute the other band members join in. Then things get crazy. This last minute of energetic, discordant excellence was recorded at the band’s recent Workers Club gig in
Melbourne, and can be heard on their SoundCloud page.
EVERYTHING IN ITS RIGHT PLACE, LIVE @ THE WORKERS CLUB
