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.

As it’s the birthday of the one-and-only Thelonious Sphere Monk. What better time to enjoy this absolute masterpiece?

Today I learned that I’m incapable of playing Bass without pouting. Woe is me. But on the plus-side, I’m hard at work on some new music and videos that I’m rather excited to be sharing with you all in the coming weeks!

Some of you may remember a few months ago I was working on the soundtrack to a film called EVOL, written and directed by Sam Mason Bell and Trash Arts. Well after a few more months of mixing, procrastinating and perfectionist-ing, you finally you can listen to and download the whole soundtrack here I hope you like it!

A few action-shots from my set at Victorious Festival last weekend… Same again next year please! Big love to Adam Lacey for these photos.
