Bow Gamelan Orchestra


I’m currently reading Michael Bracewell’s Re-Make/Re-Model – superficially at least a history of the early Roxy Music – when completely out of the blue he goes and mentions Bow Gamelan Orchestra.

BOW GAMELAN ORCHESTRA!!! I saw them twice in the late 1980s, a breathtaking mix of industrial noise and pyrotechnics. The mentality was: yes it’s great to thrash gongs, but it’s even better if we set light to them first
