If you threw a hundred instruments, five musicians and the soundtracks to cinema classics like The Good, The Bad And The Ugly and For A Few Dollars More into a blender and hit the big red button, you might end up with the Spaghetti Western Orchestra (or a rather nasty mess).

Between gigs in Macau and Finland, these talented Aussies will be dropping into the South Bank’s Queen Elizabeth Hall for a four night run where you can see them play classical instruments as well as the strange (a vibraphone and a theremin) and the frankly bizarre (an asthma inhaler, cornflakes, a boot and knives) to bring to life the lush soundscapes of Ennio Morricone and Sergio Leone’s film epics. Don your poncho, track down a ten-gallon hat and mosey on down to here for more information on how to git y’self a ticket.
