Little Death Orchestra

Post by payney » Fri Aug 12, 2005 10:09 am

I've been hearing Little Death Orchestra's Tiny Crescent Sun being played on the Classic FM TV channel, and it sounds very familiar. Does anyone know if it's been used in any film/TV soundtracks, or adverts? It could just be that it's ne of those pieces of music that sounds familiar the first time you hear it!

No, I wish I did because I've been trying to find out if I can download it for ages (it looks like the only way to get it is to buy their entire album). The only place I've heard it is on the Classic FM TV channel, so I'm, hoping there's someone in here who already knows of it.

Well, miracles do happen . . .

An outfit named The Little Death Orchestra makes me think "unlikely!" but who knows? I listen to a group blithely named The Suspicious Cheese Lords who do Medieval and Renaissance a cappella music (that's a pic of one of them on their Senfl cd cover). Go figure. I couldn't find a listing for your group on Amazon.

Well, that sounded enough like John Adams to be reeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaalllllllllllllly annoying.

No links to tracks on the page marked "tracks." Interesting write ups tho - guy's got a sense of huma.

I've checked amazon, amazon.uk, virgin megastores, and tower. No links to music.

I wonder if they picked their name with sex plus euphemism in mind. :)

After Sex Pistols, nothing would surprise me, but after Sex Pistols, why euphemize? Why not The Good Shag Orchestra? And where and what was the orchestra? The author of the track notes sounded like a one-man operation.

Thanks to everyone who has responded. I've finally found a link, to a sample, courtesy of the BBC. The link is for the page the sampleislisted on, rather than a direct link, to try and avoid any problems. It's track 2 I'm interested in, Tiny Crescent Sun: http://www.bbc.co.uk/cgi-perl/music/muz ... _id=464201
