I remember this too. I think Soul Train did the same thing. I remember a band on AB where the drummer just had his drums lying around on the stage and no cymbals. I believe he was sitting on the bass drum just hitting around on stuff during the song, maybe it was Adam Ant or someone like that..funny stuff.
