Salon KingsadoreMountain Rescue

Salon Kingsadore is an upbeat instrumental combo with points of reference as diverse as surf guitar, jazz, film soundtracks and psychedelic rock.
In early 2000, the band formed to write music for a local stage play. A couple of years later they released the vaguely spy-movie-ish EP, Flaming Morricone (2002). In 2004 they released their debut album Salon Kingsadore to great reviews -"I was knocked out by the inventiveness, maturity and musicianship in general… It was clear to me that this was one of 2004’s standout local releases and I inevitably featured it in my ‘best of the year’ programme just before Christmas." - Nick Bollinger - National Radio 
  Salon Kingsadore's third and latest full-length Mountain Rescue (2010) features, the classic line-up of Fender Rhodes/Hammond organ, piano (Billy Squire) electric guitar (Gianmarco Liguori), bass (Hayden Sinclair) & drums (Steven Tait) and is augmented with some freaky saxophone & flute from ex-Small Faces/Four Tops hornsman Brian Smith and additional brass from Edwina Thorne.
For fans of: Ennio Morricone, Tortoise and cinematic/instrumental music.

"Even without a mouth they're not shy of decent tunes - it might be instrumental but there's little post-rock austerity in this set… sprightly mid-tempo indie-rock of a vocal-free but jazzy imagination and deft lightness of touch. Quite Kingsadorable." - Russell Baillie - NZ Herald
"Like an imaginary instrumental surf group hired by David Lynch for some surreal homage to an endless wrap- up party, Salon Kingsadore might reference groups like Stereolab and even Tortoise, but they come out sounding just like themselves." - Gary Steel - Metro
