FANTASY ORCHESTRA - THE BEAR & OTHER STORIES Vinyl LP
The Fantasy Orchestra is a community project led by This Is The Kit's Jesse D Vernon, featuring guest vocals by Kate Stables (also TITK). Based in Bristol and also in Paris. The Orchestra (motto: 'more is more') brings together 40+ musicians, professional and amateur, to create a kaleidoscopic symphonic brigade. Live shows can include more than 80 performers.They began life as an Ennio Morricone covers band and have since developed full sets of David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Jimi Hendrix, and most recently, Radiohead. There's more than two hundred songs in their repertoire and their mission is World Peace One Note At A Time. Their eclectic repertoire covers film soundtracks (Morricone, Barry, RD Burman), rock and pop favourites (Hendrix, Beatles, Bowie), and some more obscure treasures. Think psychedelic loveliness, rousing choral noise, and some choice costumes.
