The jam band phenomenon, while a mammoth deal in the US, has failed to truly ignite here – the reason being more about logistics than the actual music. Borne out of the Grateful Dead and their kin’s fondness for long, often improvised live shows, there developed an entire subculture of musicians intent on walking a more spontaneous musical path. Disco Biscuits are one such group who traverse the line between rock and dub. They play here with their UK brethren, The Bays, who do similar things only with live electronica. A mighty double bill.
