Rock'n'roll drums

Now listen to Steve Shelley's drums on this song by early 90's alterna-rockers Dim Stars, recorded a year before yesterday's track. Compare/contrast these straight-ahead driving rock'n'roll drums with Steve's minimalist drums on yesterday's track. Can you name any other drummer currently active who can switch styles so quickly and thoroughly within such a short amount of time?
