As all Knights know..it pays to think left field... If say, heavy Metal Guitars are old hat...like everyone does it and no one is taking any notice... then, hey, just substitute them for Cellos. Same thing, Just go back to the beginning...Those old time dudes were Rock Stars of their day right??? Just Subvert the whole Guitar = phallus, Cellos = Nerds thing and Bingo!!
My reviewing brief last night was to cover the first night of Finnish Band Apocalpytica's World Tour, that opened in Oxford in front of a few thousand raving Rock fans. Four Cellists and a Drummer you wouldn't have thought would have taken the roof off the auditorium...but, boom! there goes the new roof.
My picture above just caught them when they'd slowed from a Blur of Mayhem and noise...and showing they can make like an Chamber quartet if they want to... They were stunning musicians... who just knew that Rock, Spinal Tap style is still some of the best fun you can have with your clothes on.
There is plenty of You Tube action if you want to check them out...
but I suppose, the reason I thought I'd squirt this onto the KMSA Blog is that ; if you have an idea, however much you'd think it had been invented by Monty Python, just give it a try.
No one ever went broke underestimating the taste of the Public.
