FISCHERSPOONER - 'BIGGER THAN STAR WARS'
FISCHERSPOONER[/url]’s stunning live show is coming to the UK next week – and the duo promise that it will be "bigger than 'STAR WARS'".

In the week that 'Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones' hit cinema screens, Fischerspooner[/url] were unveiling their latest special effects filled live extravaganza at the Deitch Projects gallery in New York before bringing it to the UK for the dates at London’s The Bridge on May 30 and 31.

Frontman Casey Spooner described the image to NME.COM as "colonial" while his partner Warren Fischer elaborated: "It’s a little more 'The King & I' than colonial. It is a bit Bollywood but it’s a little distanced from the Bollywood reference because there’s a 17th century vibe. It’s sort of Fifties Hollywood with Asian influences that have been lifted inappropriately."

The band have been working for the past few months on their new performance, fine-tuning the special effects, lighting and choreography. Warren told NME.COM: "We have used everything from glitter motors, which are explosions of glitter that rain down on the audience, snow machines, wind machines and prosthetics to all manner of mist machines, rain machines, smoke, dry ice and CO2 canisters. The London shows are going to be bigger than 'Star Wars II'. Easily."
