Moulettes Finally tonight, the main act took the stage and as with the last time I saw them they seemed to be the most unlikely band ever. Centre stage is a cello player, supported by a double bass and a drummer that plays guitar – yes, often at the same time, all topped off with a violinist to boot. My only regret was the bassoon player wasn’t there tonight – I’m a sucker for a bassoon player in a band – because there are of course loads of bands with bassoon players! As you might have imagined, Moulettes are not, by any stretch of the imagination, what you would class as mainstream; for heaven’s sake they count a tea towel as one of their merchandise items, but what they are is truly magnificent.
