The Most Dangerous Band in Town Gunslingers, bandidos, outlaws and the Wild West. The Counterfeit perform a dynamic collection of Italian soundtracks derived from the greatest Spaghetti Western films of the 1960’s. Featuring Ballarat’s most wanted woman Freya Josephine Hollick on vocals, the 10-piece posse interpret iconic themes including Ennio Morricone’s ‘The Good, the Bad & the Ugly’, ‘A Fistful of Dollars’ and ‘Ecstasy of Gold’, delivering a romantic backdrop for the perfect cinematic showdown.

The posse’s second LP ’14 Killer Bullets from the Spaghetti West (Vol.2)’ showcases a track list of classic Spaghetti Western soundtrack music that has been reimagined, rearranged and carefully reorchestrated for the 10-piece line-up. Unlike their entirely instrumental Volume 1 LP (released in September of 2022), The Counterfeit recruited Freya Josephine Hollick to ride in the posse for 5 tracks on the Vol.2 record, which is quite a point of difference to the original film score recordings that almost always favoured male, Italian baritone vocalists.

Staying true to a lot of the typical instrumentation of the original film scores, 14KBv2 features instruments such as the chromatic harmonica, Fender Bass VI, twangy electric guitars and jangly acoustics, with trumpet, violin and an array of pianos and organs playing a huge role in transporting the listener to the unforgiving plains of the Wild West.
