Fugitive Orchestra.

James Tattington started performing as Fugitive Orchestra after reading a passage in a J. G. Ballard novel.

Fugitive Orchestra makes music which sits in the middle of a bar-brawl between Jazz, Folk, Blues and Alternative, uneasily drinking an Espresso; drawing inspiration from the likes of Tom Waits, Jeff Buckley, Andrew Bird, Kate Bush, Paul Simon and not being anything like Holden Caulfield.

"Nevermore."

An acoustic version of a track I recently recorded for the Moonshine Songwriter’s Circle, Rooftop Sessions. The song is called Victor, and I had a lot of fun recording it on a rooftop in Portsmouth while the sun hid behind a cloud.

Last night at the Southbank Centre Mr. Joe Henry was every bit as magical, witty and inspiring as I could have hoped for. The fact that he didn’t stop there, and instead invited such musical monoliths as Lisa Hannigan, Billy Bragg and John Smith to join him throughout the set… Well… I’m still a little stuck for words.

Happy birthday to a living legend, inimitable wordsmith, and unique innovator. Many happy returns, Bob Dylan.

Had a great day in the studio today recording some bass and drums.. Now for an evening of guitar and vocals!

A new song for your eyes and ears! It’s called List of Demands, and I recorded it on a CCi-TV show called The Vault. The track will be featuring on my forthcoming debut album, so I hope you like it!

When Gandhi visited Britain in 1931, he was asked by a journalist what he thought of Western civilisation. His response is still just as hilarious and profound today.
