"Eastmond’s big band sound is like being woken up at 5am by someone chucking ice cold water in your face. It’s unexpected, it’s challenging, and it’s not always comfortable."

“free-jazz, surf, rock, cartoon, Radical Jewish Culture and Downtown film noir dreamscape” translating the composer’s vision into a sound that feels, at once, disturbingly aggressive and disarmingly vulnerable.

"You get the sense of something quite special happening here. Sounds and pictures are woven by the orchestra and the duo create images of other worlds, fleeting souls passing through, stopping momentarily and then moving onwards. There is texture and richness here, The

Spike Orchestra sounds like nothing else"
