Major Parkinson / The Nature Centre on Wednesday 26th September 2018
Major Parkinson write tunes. But with influences from across the rock and classical genres (from The Beatles to Cardiacs) and a warped vision of the musical world, their tunes are like no other. You may hear a snippet of an East European folk song, a nursery rhyme, a stage musical, even a rock anthem, all played out on a range of instruments that a symphony orchestra couldn’t muster - synths, strings, old typewriters, brass and reputedly a decommissioned jet fighter engine. The musical scores behind their songs are both monumental and breathtaking - explosive synth and guitar sections that pound at your heart and then instantly make it melt with beautiful choral harmonies, and then drawn in you will dance and sing along as if centre stage in a West End show. With songs too that cover subjects as diverse as Pavlovian Hounds to Ducks in the Pond, the sheer scale and absurdity of the Norwegian band’s extraordinary musical world can only be truly appreciated by seeing their 7-piece stage performances live.
Support for this show comes from Birmingham band The Nature Centre - described as ''the kind of fololoppy pop that Syd Barrett might make if he headed up a harmony girl group under the influence”
