mr mcfall's chamber
mr mcfall's chamber is a scottish ensemble. they take on frank zappa's 'echidna's arf'. from their website:
Mr McFall's Chamber plays Hendrix to elderly classical audiences, Arvo Part to stoned clubbers, mixes songs by Lowell George and Elvis Costello with new compositions from James MacMillan and Edward McGuire, seeks out music which straddles the divide between classical and other styles - for example, the tango music of Astor Piazzolla, the cartoon swing classics of Raymond Scott or the yippie modernism of Frank Zappa -, makes a string quartet sound like a rock group, using electric instruments, or rock music sound gentle and intimate on natural strings. We do these things, not to perplex or shock, not to labour a point or idea, but to entertain, move and excite.
