I remember when Mtv went through the stage of having every band perform unplugged. Tesla, Eric Clapton, Bon Jovi, Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots and 10,000 maniacs were the good ones, from what I remembered. LL Cool J, not sure if that worked out. Though Mamma’s Gonna Knock You Out did have a catchy 12 string beat. Here we are a handful of decades later, and a new stripped down, raw sound has emerged – The iPhone Band. This summer the Feel AbouT band performed live, playing only with iPhones as instruments. They had hooked 'em up to amps for volume. The i-concert took place at the MotoRock bar in Tel-Aviv, Israel. What amazed me the most was not the incredible sound, or the proficiency of the e-maestros. It was the fact that half the phones were 2G (edge network). Here’s the official band/app roster.

Guitar - Guy Fisher - Frontier iShred - iPhone 3G

Bass - Aviran Rotem - MooCow Band - iPod 2G

Drums - Dror Rostami MooCow Band - iPhone 2G

Piano - Tal Aviram - Mini Piano - iPhone 2G

Vocal - Roni Weinstock

Follow Me Down is the song performed. I’d say there sound is reminiscent of the 90s Cranberries. At least for that cut. There fan site has other (non-iPhone) songs which definitely have a harder edge. You can also check ‘em out on iTunes and Amazon.
