About

The Noirchestra’s second LP, 2015’s From the Bestiary to the Leathering Room (on Germany’s Rookie Records), was mixed by David Carswell (The Smugglers) in a dark, Americana style and its thick white vinyl is covered with the intoxicating art of Santiago Caruso (Pan’s Labyrinth). Big John’s “other-worldly” guitars lead the band’s “unorthodox, intriguing style” while Brandy Bones’ vocals invoke “an infernal fusion of Patti Smith & Siouxsie Sioux”.

“A blend of Jack White blues, Calliope-style cello, thumping drums and banshee wails”
– Americana UK

“Headless Fowl is extremely cool”
– Jello Biafra

Songwriters JD Bates (guitar and vocals) and Montana’s Brandy Bones (upright bass and vocals) are joined by Ty-Ty The Savior on percussion and RequiEmily on electric violin. Bates began professionally as songwriter and frontman for thrash metal icons Annihilator before joining the Americana/Garage scene with the Voodoo Dollz. In March 2017 they began the recording process for the next LP in Kyoto, recording two songs with the ultra-hip Ultra Bide (Alternative Tentacles).
