Yoko Ono/IMA (w/ Russell Simins) – Knitting Factory, New York City, NY, US (6 March 1996)

Yoko Ono/IMA (w/ Russell Simins) show at Knitting Factory, New York City, NY, US on 6 March 1996,

“Her band, IMA, was just a notch above a neighborhood group jamming in a tenement basement, vamping along on rudimentary patterns of reggae, funk or rock. For one song, it set out a quasi-Indian drone while Russell Simins, the drummer, played a resonant metal bowl, and Sean Ono Lennon, who usually played guitar or keyboard, bowed a musical saw. But the band, which also included Timo Ellis on bass, was needed merely to furnish a musical pulse as a backdrop to Ms. Ono’s voice.” – NYTimes.com
