about

In Spring 2011 we were invited to perform a live soundtrack to a film at a temporary cinema in Hackney, East London. The film was Kenneth Anger's 1960's cult classic Scorpio Rising and perform a live soundtrack we did. On July 1st, after many long hours perfecting the art of playing along to the film without getting distracted by the leather and the mustard, we played 12 new arrangements of the massive pop hits that appear on Anger's original soundtrack. It was without a doubt one of the most fun and nerve racking 30 minutes we have ever spent so we stole away to the studio for a few days here and there over the next 6 months and recorded our versions of the songs. This here is that.
