If It Ain't Baroque Don't Fix It
- (The Combovers)
- Format: CD
Hi, We're The Combovers. We'd like to invite you to listen to our latest EP 'If It Ain't Baroque, Don't Fix It'. This EP is a concept-based side project (seperate from our releases of original songs) which explores the idea of performing well known Classical music pieces from a range of traditional music periods in an 'un-traditional' way........ Through the means of punk inspired rock. Our band consist of ourselves, the founding members Luke Reichelt and Michael Simms. However, on these recordings we have implored the help of 2 very skilled session musicians (Ian Peres on keyboard and Jeff Paton on Drums) to ensure the up-most coherent transition when taking these classical pieces to such unknown territory for this experimental recording project. The pieces were intended to be performed and produced in such away where the intesity of the original pieces was maintained, but with that 'Snotty Rock 'n' Roll' kind of attitude found in the likes of NOFX, Bad Religion and Metallica (to name a few well known examples) Pieces we have recorded for this EP are as follows: 1. In The Hall Of The Mountain King (Grieg) 2. Rondo Alla Turca (Mozart) 3. Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy (Tchaikovsky) 4. The Four Seasons - Spring (Vivaldi) 5. Symphony No.5 (Beethoven) We kindly ask you to please turn up your speakers and acknowledge classical music in a way that we feel the youth of today's generation may possibly appreciate it. We hope you enjoy 'If It Ain't Baroque, Don't Fix It' Have a nice day and thank you for reading Kind Regards, Luke Reichelt and Michael Simms The Combovers.
