Mandarin Matryomin Orchestra

Back in 2006 I had the dubious fortune to search for about three hours in the London rain, trying to find the tiny venue in which I had heard an amazing Theremin orchestra was supposed to be playing. Well, it was a ‘Matryomin orchestra’ actually [a Matryomin is a Theremin, shaped like a Russian doll] and it was so worth the wait. When I see stuff like this I feel deeply ashamed to still be plucking the ubiquitous six string instrument called the ‘guitar’, like some sort of Cro-Magnon man. Next album, I resolve to dump it and get more like these crazy cats!
