White Rabbits

“Hi. You’re looking for White Rabbits? Let’s see, if we can find them,” said the tall blond guy and walked us through the Glasgow venue King Tut’s, where the Brooklyn-based White Rabbits were going to perform that night. In search of the upcoming 6-piece band we lost track of the headlining band, who were no longer youngsters, but classics: Spoon. So the friendly guy showing us around was actually Britt Daniel himself, what we only get to comprehend when we saw Spoon on stage later that night. The show was overwhelming, not just because everyone was crazy about Spoon, but also because White Rabbits impressively put their backs into it. The fact that White Rabbits have two forceful drummers punctuates their rather physical play. It is all the more fascinating, when Stephen, Alex and Greg showed up in the backyard of the venue to do this filming with no drummer at all, but as a guitar-playing trio. Dimly lit by their van with some constant buzzing noise in the air, they set for the powerful “Rudie Fails” and “Percussion Gun”. Even in this reduced and improvised setting, their musical wave set the teeth on edge. Considering the fact that White Rabbits were told to hold a little back with their massive sound when playing in the backyard, so that there was no immediate complain about disturbance of the peace by night, it is somewhat good that the session was “only” guitars and vocals. It was super intense already.
