The Fantasy Orchestra - The Bear And Other Stories

The Fantasy Orchestra is a new project led by THIS IS THE KIT’S Jesse D Vernon and featuring Kate Stables from THIS IS THE KIT on guest vocals.

Features covers of Richard Dawson, Caetano Veloso, Sun Ra and more David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Jimi Hendrix, and most recently, Radiohead. There's more than two hundred songs in their repertoire and their mission is World Peace One Note At A Time. They meet every week and go on a bicycle tour every summer. Their eclectic repertoire covers film soundtracks (Morricone, Barry, RD Burman), rock and pop favourites (Hendrix, Beatles, Bowie), and some more obscure treasures. Think psychedelic loveliness, rousing choral noise, and some choice costumes. The track list represents a Fantasy mix of well-known and lesser-known composers such as Bristol-based master guitarists Paul Bradley and Jamie Harrison, whose song, The Bear, gives the album its title.
