Kwon Soon Keun steals the showSep 17 2012

Normally, I'm fairly conversant on crazy Korean drummers, so I have no idea how I missed the boat on Kwon Soon Keun. Keun is the subject of A Drummer's Passion, a movie about his life and wild playing style. This was the first video of Keun's playing to get a lot of attention, and it is amazing, amazing, amazing, but the video below is sublime. Maybe it's the stone-faced bass player, maybe it's the environment, but at 1:10, magic happens.
