David Scott, Duglas T Stewart & friends: Mondo Morricone

Glasgow Music and Film Festival presents

David Scott, Duglas T Stewart & friends: Mondo Morricone

Sat 26 Feb 2011 | 7.30pm | £15 + bf

“I caught Mondo Morricone in 2000 as a young student at the University of Stirling. It was such a carefully crafted and loving show, I bootlegged the performance and cherished that cassette for many years to come. When I finally saw Morricone performing with his 100 piece orchestra at Verona’s colliseum this year, although a wonderful experience, I can honestly say that I preferred Duglas and David’s Mondo Morricone show. I’ll be down the front, cassette recorder in hand…”

Brian Reynolds, Co-Curator, Glasgow Music and Film Festival

Probably the most celebrated living composer of film soundtracks, Ennio Morricone’s universally recognised theme for The Good, The Bad and The Ugly is just one of his achievements. As well as his collaborations with Sergio Leone on a series of spaghetti westerns, renowned for their forward thinking use of motifs and musique concrete influence, Morricone has scored more than 450 films, from the Italian Giallo movies of the 60s and 70s to huge Hollywood hits such as The Mission and The Untouchables, to classics of European cinema including Cinema Paradiso and Le Cage Aux Folles.

In January 2000, Davie Scott (The Pearlfishers) and Duglas T Stewart (BMX Bandits) brought together some of Scotland’s finest musicians to celebrate the wide and wonderful world of Ennio Morricone, including members of Belle & Sebastian, Teenage Fanclub, The Bathers and The Vaselines plus veteran Scottish broadcaster Peter Easton.

Now the duo are returning with an even bigger and even better version of Mondo Morricone, featuring a host of pop and jazz artists, and some specially curated visuals to accompany some of the most extraordinary, idiosyncractic music ever written. Guests confirmed so far include:

Mick Slaven (The Leopards, Deacon Blue)
Jim Gash (The Pearlfishers, Deacon Blue)
Jo Mango
Stevie Jackson (Belle and Sebastian)
Sarah-Beth Brown (Born By Wires)
Peter Easton (BBC Scotland)
Gareth Perrie (Randolph’s Leap)
Marco Rea (The Wellgreen, Starla Records)
Brian Molley
Allon Beauvoisin
