This is The Experience. Enjoy the unique sounds of Pastel Vespa Exotica? Lounge pop? Mambo Pop? Anarchy Cha-cha? Odd kind of nostalgia? Time for action. Pastel Vespa is the voice of Spring, a fresh daisy in dappled sunlight, but just as comfortable après-ski after an Audrey Hepburn-style day on the slopes. Sports cars, impossibly long white scarves, knitted daisy dresses. This is the world of Pastel Vespa . "L'Anarchie" (siesta 162), the first full-length album and testament to the talent of this new star.
Armed with unforgettable songs by Messrs. Lynott, Morrisette, Dury, and Rotten, amongst others and aided by the rhapsodic musical direction of Mr. John Thorn, Pastel takes you on a journey into exciting new musical terrain. Mariachi bands strum where electric guitars once howled, smooth lounge blows the angst from Chumbawamba and "Ironic" gets the torch song treatment it always craved.
Pastel slows the KISS classic "I Was Made For Lovin' You" down to a bedroom purr, "Teenage Dirtbag" goes adult-contemporary and "Evie Pts 1, 2 & 3", the quintessential Australian 70's rock anthem, becomes a melding of lounge, The Carpenters and Latin disco! Yes the boys are back in town, but this time they're packing marimbas! And as for Pastel's singing, suffice to say it's as warm as the sunlit waters of Bahia . “Takin’ The Back Roads” (siesta 192), is an extraordinary second album that only takes a few spins to blossom. Essentially when Pastel sings, nations meet nations, her vocals glide - Metallica meets Kaempfert, The Cure meets The Four King Cousins, Nakamura meets Joao Gilberto, Prince meets Tito Puente, The Angels meet Brigitte Bardot and New Order/ Joy Division meets Herb Alpert, just to name a few. Think of the United Nations of Pop or the majestic Tower of Babel and the integrating capacity of art. All the cover versions from this chanteuse are appealing and replete of singalong hooks. Fiona and John Thorn are prolific, mobile and versatile artists.
Their fecund imagination has generated from spontaneous and improvised Broadway Musicals “every night” to theatre plays of great success not to mention their musical restlessness of different sources and latitudes. They have played in Thailand , Emirates and Indonesia , always with great recognition and pleasure. They have been recently commissioned for the first moon festival in 2015. Let’s fly!
