Anton Fig, drummer on the "Late Show with David Letterman," shares his own tips and ideas on making music and for surviving in the professional world. He talks about time, communicating through music, nuances of different styles, constructing a beat for a song and what it takes to play on the Late Show. (75 min.)
Most importantly though, this tape is a rare video record of the South African trio Skollie (Blondie Chaplin, keith Lentin and Anton Fig) performing live. The tape includes three songs throughout - One song (Law and Order) from the 1992 Ostrich Man album and two other songs which remain unreleased (Cool Cool Day & 1-2-3). All three songs are great straight forward hard rock songs, no ballads here!!
The performances were filmed professionally with multiple cameras and are of excellent sound quality. Blondie Chaplin contributes his usual outstanding vocal talent and some crankin' guitar solos. Ketih lays a thick bass line and smooth backing vocals and Anton Fig pounds away with his usual great 'feel' and shines on the extended drum solos.
For the Skollie or Blondie Chaplin fan, let me say your collection is far from complete without these rare live performances. The trio Skollie was a class act with great energy, astute professionalism and powerful riffs. These guys are all three master musicians.
