Thank God It’s Monday #1

Put away that blade, unsharpen your noose and toss aside A Beginner’s Guide To Topping Yourself – Best For Film are here to make sure it never comes to that. Until Tuesday, anyway. From tonight (Monday 9th) until Wednesday 11th the Spaghetti Western Orchestra are playing London Southbank’s Queen Elizabeth Hall, bringing comedy, music and coathangers to classic Clint Eastwood themes. Confused? READ ON.

Armed with over 100 instruments, five brilliantly comedic musicians perform a fistful of Ennio Morricone classics from the movies that made Clint Eastwood a star, including soundtracks from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, For A Few Dollars More and Once Upon a Time in The West. Take a look, it’s unlikely you’ll see anything else like it:

These Aussie maestros have made a name for themselves combining startling musicality, a love of Ennio Morricone and a healthy passion for shouting; creating the ultimate experience for Western lovers everywhere. They’re also known for their use of alternative instruments: blowing on bottles, crushing cornflakes, playing coathangers, apples, squeaky toys, rubbergloves, bicycle pumps, nailclippers and many more – recreating every punch up, gunshot, and jangling spur that define the gun slinging west.

Got any Eastwood fans that could do with cheering up? Of course you do, the last film he made was Hereafter for goodness’ sake. Make your Monday and their life – check out the ridiculous and unique Spaghetti Western Orchestra and pretend it was all your idea.
