'The Life and Death Orchestra presents This Way for the Gas Ladies and Gentlemen' ' An astonishing song about life in the death camp of Auschwitz.  The orchestra comprises of some of the best musicians around ' Bim Sinclair, Herbie Flowers, Ian Hamer, Angi Mariani and Bill Smith. This work contains writings by some of the greatest writers of the 20th Century. The songs have received great critical acclaim. The Scotsman gave it 5 stars saying that it was a simple, delicate, respectful and utterly moving collection of songs, narratives and instrumental pieces, eschewing the blatancy of drama in favour of the power of words and music and the sheer weight of history. Furthermore, the show received favourable reviews from the publication The Jewish Chronicle, Incorporating the outer limits of what humanity has proved capable of doing to itself in a song may seem incongruous, but Bill Smith and Bim Sinclair's compositions prove a compelling amalgam of Tom Waits' black vision with String Driven Thing's tortured humanity - and are searing in their simplicity
