F! Gypsy Medicine Show
Through a lens tinted by Spaghetti Western fantasies and Bollywood dreams, the Philadelphia based ensemble, F!, creates an atmosphere akin to a Fellini film or a haunting Man Ray photograph. By twisting cartoons that once fed our minds as children into a repressed music for the villain, the bands first full length release, “An Adonis” echoes that of a deranged expressionist fairy tale. Throughout the album, the compositions toy with the idea of shifting between cinematic nostalgia by mocking and exaggerating the idea of genre.
In a 2007 City Paper article for their debut CD release, Shaun Brady asked the reader to “just imagine Dick Dale persuading some Viennese opera house to let him perform the works of Raymond Scott with a circus band.”
Now imagine that band as a full blown chamber orchestra… Well that is precisely how the music of F! has evolved. In fact, there are no remaining original members of the group. Music is still being written, mainly by original F! guitarist Justin Berger, who has since taken on the role of Musical Director of the group.
