The 'Spaghetti Western Orchestra' on BBC2


(Toscano) #1

I thought a few of you might like to know that a band called the ‘Spaghetti Western Orchestra’ will be performing on the BBC2 music programme, ‘Later Live…with Jools Holland’, on Tuesday evening, 6th October, starting at 10pm - 10.30pm.
An extended repeat of the show will also be broadcast on BBC2, on Friday, 9th October, at 11.35pm - 12.40am.
I’d never before heard of the band, but they are a group of guys who are committed to playing the various Spaghetti Western themes of Ennio Morricone. Unlike a traditional group of musicians, they are entirely original in their approach to the performances - and amongst the ‘instruments’ that they use are crisp bags, bin lids, the human voice etc. A very entertaining band, judging by a few of their performances that I have located on Youtube - one of their best being ‘The Good, The Bad & The Ugly’. Hope you all enjoy. If any of you tune in to watch it, please let us all know what you think of it.
Toscano.
