One is good? Two is better.

I actually had a completely different song picked out for this month, but the new White Rabbits song, "Percussion Gun" is just so completely freakin' awesome that I couldn't wait until February to post it. What gives it that feeling of extreme awesomeness, you ask? It's right there in the name of the song!

Percussion. Or in this case two percussions. That's right, dueling drummers! As you'll see by just my few examples below, the two drummer idea is hardly new...and yet, it almost always works.

Get this one on the iPod fast - it's fantastic to run to.

A great live version of Percussion Gun from Letterman.

And the official video of Percussion Gun.

Sound sort of familiar? Well, Adam and the Ants were rocking it with two drummers about 30 years ago.

And of course, Washington homeboys Modest Mouse kicks it with two drummers as well. Hey, it just never goes out of style.
