Conformity Contortion (Thollem Electric on keyboards, and Sara Lund on drums), create a monolithic, rollicking and forceful sound – the sum of Thollem’s coiling, fluid lines and Sara’s thunderous backbeats. The duo has been working/playing together for several years now, always exploring new terrains between the seemingly endless array of possibilities their instruments and their experiences provide.
Sara Lund has been providing beats and exploring rhythm since age 11. She is best known for her work as the drummer for Unwound (1992-2002). Sara’s recent projects include Hungry Ghost, and The Corin Tucker Band, as well as both 77Boadrum & 88Boadrum orchestras with the Boredoms (and 76 & 87 other drummers).
