PUTTING THE CULT BACK IN CULTURE

The Noirchestra was created in 2010 when Brandy Bones started touring with Big John Bates in his previous band. The plan took shape over hundreds of road dates until the first songs of this subterranean-rock-chamber-punk band were thrashed out in 2011. And after touring with many willing helpers, the Noirchestra found full-time cult members in Ty-Ty the Saviour and RequiEmily.

ALBUMS: Skinners Cage (2019), From the Bestiary (2015), Battered Bones (2012), Headless Fowl EP (2012)

3 Things to know about Skinners Cage - Stuart Derdeyn (The Province):

1: All the Devils. The opening track is a ragged rocker in line with what fans would associate with a BJB album. But rather than hyper-amped guitar, it’s the violin bowing like crazy that drives the track and also gives it a solidly B-movie spookiness. There is a Theremin lick that is totally addictive. 2: Brandy Bones singing. It’s hard to bring something new to a song as signature as Broken English, but Bones does just that as she seems to cross between Siouxsie Sioux and Courtney Love, giving the moody lyrics new-found heaviness. She can also be downright old-timey as on Thread by Thread. 3: Skinners Cage. The title track begins as a near-folk acoustic number before it builds into a power rocker featuring some parts that wouldn’t sound out of place on a classic psychedelic garage recording from the ’60s. Bates drops a killer solo in this song.
