In Spring 2011 we were invited to perform a live soundtrack to a film at a temporary cinema in Hackney, East London. The film was Kenneth Anger‘s 1960′s cult classic Scorpio Rising and perform a live soundtrack we did. On July 1st, after many long hours perfecting the art of playing along to the film without getting distracted by the leather and the mustard, we played 12 new arrangements of the massive pop hits that appear on Anger’s original soundtrack.  –Peggy Sue

Their 2011 second full-length “Acrobats,” produced by John Parish (PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse, Giant Sand, Eels etc), is available via Wichita Recordings (UK) / Yep Roc (US). “Scorpio Rising” is available on their bandcamp and via Yep Roc, HERE.
