    German edition pressed on pink marbled 180g vinyl - All the Devils is the opening track and first video from the new Big John Bates LP “Skinners Cage”. The song is a ragged rocker but instead of a hyper-amped guitar, an insane violin drives the track. The video was shot in a mad grindshow-style that compliments the B-movie spookiness of the track and sets the mood for the entire album. This is a band built for the live experience.

about

The third album to come from the tireless touring machine that is Big John Bates, Big John Bates: Noirchestra now finds the musician stepping out into slightly different terrain. The songs are less full-on rock attack and more exploring of textures and variations while still working firmly in the Americana Noir genre the band is known for.

It’s a very good fit having the trio of guitarist Bates, bassist Brandy Bones and drummer Ty-Ty expanded to include violinist RequiEmily, who greatly expands the sonic capacities of the group.

The 11 tracks include both originals and covers of Marianne Faithfull’s Broken English, Kurt Weil’s Moon of Alabama and Dead Moon Night by Dead Moon.

Big John Bates: Noirchestra Vancouver, British Columbia

A chamber-punk soundtrack of tough, smoky rock with an edge sharp enough to draw blood. The dark twang of guitarist Big John Bates and bowed bass of Brandy Bones with drummer Ty-Ty the Saviour and psyche violinist RequiEmily. They craft haunting tales that span northern-gothic Americana to a mutant hybrid of postpunk and Weimar Republic cabaret. ... more
