Shobaleader One prove that even one of the most intricate Squarepusher songs can be pulled off live to amazing results! (video)
One of the burning questions I’ve always had about Squarepusher’s music since the early days has been: could it be played live? Thanks to the power of the internet, about a thousand (slight exaggeration) or so cover bands have proven; yes, it can be done. What I never expected was for Squarepusher to form his own band, Shobaleader One, and manage to do it better than everyone else. And the fact that they chose one of my favorite tracks from his Hard Normal Daddy album, “Coopers World”, for this live performance just makes me even happier. Check this out!
And for those of you have never heard the original “studio” version, check this out for comparison and listen to how close they are.
