Mons Orchestra to support in Brussels

According to The Cirque Royal's website belgian outfit Mons Orchestra will appear on one bill with Motorpsycho for the concert in Brussels on May 7 -- most likely as support. Despite some (maybe not so creative) googling I wasn't able to find out what kind of music they are about. Since Motorpsycho very seldomely agree to perform with other bands or support acts this should be interesting either way.

Thanks to wot?!? at The UnOff's forums, who pointed it out first.

If you happen to know more about this or the Mons Orchestra please post a comment...

i haven't found much either; it appears to be a 13 memeber orchestra. they've provided string arrangements for some belgian artists. from what i gather, they seem fairly straightforward. not as challenging as jaga jazzist.
i wouldn't see that work on stage with mp. but even less as a support act so it'll be very interesting to see what the idea for the evening is.
i would love to see mp playing with a violin player (as opposed to a full orchestra), though.

great - thanks for the info. a violin player would certainly add a new dimension to MP'sound - of course tunes like "the nerve tattoo" come to mind & it could provide a real dissonant edge.

wo knows what they will be up to anyway, lol :)
