Alloy Orchestra

This is pretty cool. Roger Miller (of Mission of Burma fame) has a side project called Alloy Orchestra which does accompaniment for classic silent films.

Roger Ebert says they are “the best in the world at accompanying silent films.”

  1. Not “King of the Road” Roger Miller?

    Alt-country performer Robbie Fulks has put together a soundtrack for the silent Harry Langdon film “Tramp, Tramp, Tramp” which made a similar tour around, but it never got near me.
