PUTTING THE CULT BACK IN CULTURE

Imagine growing up across the road from a hillside cemetery ... a daily reality that creeps into dreams and nightmares. Or coming of age in a small prairie town, where the sounds of emptiness are the only constant theme. The Noirchestra is a combination of our life experiences, insights and atmospheric reflections. Our latest collection is 2019's Skinners Cage; a pink marbled vinyl LP we filled with surprises. 

Big John Bates has performed hundreds of shows across Europe, North America and Japan - a musical contraption involving rock, psyche, punk and Americana. Once you play your part in the live show you will understand what people mean when they call it unforgettable.
