Hey kids, here’s all the news that’s fit for youse from the last couple of days there.
First off, local Electro bods Them & Us have a new EP out. It’s called Neon Lights, you can buy it here and the one track I know for a fact I’ve heard at time of writing (8 Days) is pretty damned good actually. I know that sounds like huge amounts of surprise and it’s not, I’m just not a huge electronical music person.
Congratulations to the folks at Bogbain Farm on another award win! They scooped up Venue Of The Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards. Good stuff, well deserved.
If like me you missed The Ragazzi playing in the Eagle, pants eh? Not them, missing it. WELL the good news is that most of the set will be coming out in video form in the next little while. First video is here and it features original tune Ask Myself Why and a cover of The 5,6,7,8’s Woo Hoo. Bloody good they both are too.
Roads To Damascus collaborated with Dyke Primary School to do a wee christmas single. You can hear it on Soundcloud here and it’s for sale at all of your digital download site places. LET’S GET THEM TO CHRISTMAS NUMBER 1!!! Okay that might be a stretch, but go buy a copy and raise some money for the kiddies. I had a mate who went to that primary school. Yes, I chuckle at the name.
And finally another Inverness Gigs look back with the lovely Megan Blyth who completely fails to mention that the highlight of 2012 is meeting me. That being a life highlight for most people it’s understandable though. I am speaking nonsense.
That’s your lot. If you see this as soon as it’s gone up then head on over to http://www.abcradio.co.uk at 6PM to hear the show, I’m on until 8.
