Will Johnstone + Junkyard Dawgs + Live Improvised Jam = Misirlou (Pulp Fiction Theme Tune)

Filmed by Jay Coleman of
Orphaned Snail Productions

The Junkyard Dawgs had played out the first half of their set and they took a half hour break so our band 'Will & The Wild Horse' (featuring Martin Coleman on Cajon Drum, and me on lead guitar and Wully Smith on guitar and lead vocal) stepped up to play to a packed house at The Tartan Bar in Dalry, Ayrshire, UK on Sunday 25th August 2013. We got such a great reception from the Dawgs home crew that we were encored until we had absolutely nothing left to play together, we did all our rehearsed material and ended up doing a bunch of covers coz they wouldn't let us leave the stage! Finally Wully Smith turned to me and said " Here, play that Pulp Fiction hing mate" and I began with some improvised Harmonic Minor scales and somehow our camera woman extraordinaire - Jay Coleman @ Orphaned Snail & Wake Up The Sun Music - turned from still photos to video in rapid expert fashion to capture this extremely rare piece of music footage in it's entirety! I always just jam out some weird scales and chords around this because its fun to play around with it, but when Josie King and John Graham got up to play it along side me I thought holy shit, are you guys tryin to kill me? lol. Once is hard enough at that pace and putting that kind of power down it really takes a lot out of you to play it this way on an acoustic with so much passion... but, as they say... the show must go on... and somehow one of the greatest moments in my life happened... I got to jam with the Junkyard Dawgs, it got filmed in full, and it went down an absolute belter with literally everyone in the place. We really hit something special on this jammed version of Dick Dale and the Del Tones' 60's surf rock classic "Misirlou" made famous among modern circles by the Quentin Tarantino 90's cult classic "Pulp Fiction".
