Published November 06, 2003.The CreaturesHai! (Instinct)In the fall of 2002, Budgie, drummer for Siouxie and the Banshees, met up with Taiko drum phenom Leonard Eto to record some spontaneous drum improvs. The session—appropriately referred to as “a full blown drum frenzy” in the liner notes—later formed the basis of this new Creatures album. And what an album it is. The drum tracks were mixed a year later (with extra percussion, vibraphone and marimba dubbed in), but the whole session feels immediate. Hai is a stunning listen.—Dave Hayden
