Fire! Orchestra

Fire! is Mats Gustafsson (saxophones and Fender Rhodes), Johan Berthling (bass, electric guitar and Hammond organ) and Andreas Werliin (drums).

Previously they have released three great albums on Rune Grammofon:
"Fire!: You Liked Me Five Minutes Ago" (2009)
"Fire! with Jim O´Rourke: Unreleased?" (2011)
"Fire! with Oren Ambarchi: In The Mouth A Hand" (2012)

You see they are not afraid to invite guests, but now they have totally lost control!
Check out their guest list for the "Fire! Orchestra: Exit!" (2012), their new Rune Grammofon album:

Mariam Wallentin: voice, Nadine Byrne: voice, organ, Emil Svanängen: voice, Nicolai Dunger: voice, Sofia Jernberg: voice

Niklas Barnö: trumpet, Magnus Broo: trumpet, Thomas Hallonsten: trumpet, organ, Mats Äleklint: trombone, Per Åke Holmlander: tuba

Anna Högberg: alto sax, Mats Gustafsson: tenor sax, Jonas Kullhammar: bass saxophone, Elin Larsson: tenor sax, Fredrik Ljungkvist: baritone sax, clarinet, Christer Bothén: bass clarinet, guimbri

Andreas Söderström: guitar, Reine Fiske: guitar, Sören Runolf: guitar, David Stackenäs: guitar

Sten Sandell: synth, harmonium, piano, Joachim Nordwall: electronics

Johan Berthling: electric bass, Joel Grip: bass, Joe Williamson: bass, Dan Berglund: bass
Andreas Werliin: drums, Thomas Mera Gartz: drums, Johan Holmegard: drums, Raymond Strid: drums.

And they really made a great party, playing big band-free jazz-krautrock, or something you may find in that direction.

Music: Fire!
Lyrics: Arnold De Boer

Go get it!

If you buy one of the 500 copies on white vinyl, you also get the CD.

The album was recorded 13 January 2012. 3 months later Thomas Mera Gartz passed away.
