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.
