This One Time At Band Camp

In quite possibly the coolest high school band footage ever recorded, a percussion group out of Minnetonka High School in Minneapolis has done live versions "Building Steam with a Grain of Salt" and "Changeling" originally found on DJ Shadow's influential sample driven "Entroducing" album. It's fantastically professional and remarkably close to the originals. A good write-up that I found by way of the download.com newsletter explains all the details at Music Thing.

I was quite taken with this, being a big fan of DJ Shadow, so I tracked down the guy responsible (a 25-year-old Geographic Information Sciences technician, who teaches music on the side) and interviewed him.
