The cello is not an instrument usually associated with rock and roll, but it will be if Jonathan Kirkscey has anything to say about it. The Memphis Symphony Orchestra cellist has striven to take the instrument out of the chamber and into the club. He first played with the seminal weird punks Lost Sounds, whose relentless sonic experimentation drove him to be heard over the guitars. His now-amplified cello is a crucial component of Mouserocket. The cellist has also played with such luminaries as Al Green, Harlan T. Bobo, and Snowglobe.
Besides the symphony and the rockers, Kirkscey leads an experimental ensemble known as String Theory, which is currently working on the soundtrack to Cigarette Girl.
