ORGAN THING: Zachary Detrick’s impressive Scorpion Ballet takes us down a rabbit hole that has Cardiacs at the bottom of it…

Organ Thing of The Day: “My piece “Scorpion Ballet” for oboe, bassoon, percussion, synthesizer and double bass (seen here replaced by electric cello!) was premiered at the Mostly Modern Festival. Thank you Robert Paterson et al. for letting me sneak a barely disguised rock composition into your classical festival, and a big thank you to Georgia Mills‘ laser-sharp conducting for bringing the piece to life!” so said New York’s Zachary Detrict just now as he sent us off down his rabbit hole…

And here’s some more…

Meanwhile, hang on, what’s this? Zachary Detrick’s Filibuster Saloon is a band inspired by my love of Frank Zappa, Chick Corea, Captain Beefheart, Gutbucket, The Residents, Kansas, Henry Cow, Gentle Giant, Hatfield and the North, Soft Machine, Gryphon, Samla Mammas Manna, and National Health.

And…
