I'm a huge fan of both but think the ABB did it best with Butch, Jaimo, and later Mark Q on percussion. Mickey and Bill are fantastic as well, if a bit more "traditional" most of the time. Some of the spacier, stretched-out tunes were probably better for the 2-drummer approach (Other One, Playing in the Band, Dark Star) whereas there was really no room for 2 in the shorter tunes like Bertha and Mexicali Blues.
Except the best other ones and playings are often from the (second) one drummer era (71-74)

Adam & the Ants, if anyone remembers them from the early 80's.
Adam Ant, before he went solo.
Mostly a tribal beat, and it worked well for them.
Lot's of tom patterns, and drums were the focus of that band.
They only had one guitar and a bass, no keyboards.
I think the one drummer was a lefty, so they kind of turned towards each other.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned Thee Oh Sees. Some great double drums.

Not sure if it's only on stage, could be double drums in some of the albums but I'm not 100% sure

Saw them live in 2011 with Lars from The Intelligence on the 2nd drum kit and it was an amazing show
