Subway jammin’

You may already be familiar with the above – but if not, here’s the story in brief.

Recently, the Brooklyn-based buzz band Atomic Tom suffered the theft of all their musical instruments. Despite that shitty setback, however, they’ve been highly creative and innovative by turning their iPhones into replacement instruments and displaying their skills live on the subway – and this has also given a boost to their career.

Seeing the above video for the first time early this afternoon made me smile for two reasons.

Firstly, the video is simply great fun, It’s showing four musicians playing together in a unique way to an audience that appreciates them.

Secondly, like local sensation Guitar Samurai, I greatly admire Atomic Tom for what they’ve done. Although their tools of trade have been stolen – and I hope that in some way, justice will be done – they’ve bounced back by not only crafting an interesting new way to play music, but also playing publicly in an environment where you normally wouldn’t think of a band jamming together.

And best of all, as mentioned above, it’s not only helped them to survive but also thrive.

Until next time, stay well and take care 🙂
