Also, this is not a licensed venue so please BRING YOUR OWN BEER (or other suitable refreshments). http://www.facebook.com/interestingmusicpromotions http://twitter.com/IMP_aberdeen http://www.socofadvocates.com https://www.facebook.com/Society-of-Advocates-in-Aberdeen-177098125653688 https://twitter.com/socofadvocates RICK REDBEARD What’s that? You missed out on tickets for his sold-out support slot with King Creosote at The Tivoli Theatre. Well. Aren’t you lucky…best be quick though. Three years after his glorious, SAY Award nominated debut 'No Selfish Heart', Rick Redbeard returns with 'Awake Unto': a collection of songs so timeless and melodic they emerge from the speakers like long lost friends... Awake Unto is the second mesmerising collection of songs by Rick Redbeard, aka Rick Anthony of cosmic rock magicians The Phantom Band, and comes three years after his delicately poetic solo debut No Selfish Heart. Quarried from similar stone to that of Michael Hurley, Leonard Cohen and Bill Callahan and wrapped in layers redolent of Angelo Badalamenti, Awake Unto weaves folk, balladry and filmic impulses into a tapestry of song so deftly detailed the rewards multiply with every listen. Where his debut trod an uncluttered path, employing little more than Anthony's burnished baritone, acoustic guitar, piano and violin, Awake Unto brings a far broader spectrum to bear on its heavenly melodicism — banjo, accordion, reversed keyboards, drums, widescreen electric guitar — while still leaving space for the simple formula which lit up its predecessor. There’s a larger pool of contributors here too: Rick’s sister Josephine duets on “Get Friendly (Blood)” while a cohort of his Phantom Band colleagues (Duncan Marquiss, Gerry Hart and Iain Stewart; Derek O’ Neill mixing) also manage to join the cèilidh. The family connections continue, with Awake Unto’s vivid artwork supplied by Anthony’s mother, providing yet another contrast to No Selfish Heart’s austere, monochrome woodland. While lyrical themes suffuse both albums — love, sex, death, dreams and memory loom large — Awake Unto’s approach is less allusive and more confident as Anthony learns to stretch his limbs as a solo performer. Rick Redbeard is no maudlin troubadour either: in “The Golden Age” you find a loping, rainbow-bright paean to positivity; “What Fine People” salutes the human spirit over an almost too beautiful haar of classical guitar and harmonium; and the closing “Let It Rust” makes the case for reality versus reverie as a painterly series of textures unfolds and dazzles, the mystical heart of the music a counterpoint to the plea underpinning the lyrics. Following in the wake of two Phantom Band albums - Strange Friend (2014) and Fears Trending (2015), and the music he wrote for Theresa Moerman’s New Talent BAFTA-winning documentary ‘The Third Dad’, it’s hardly surprising Awake Unto marks an assured shift in scope, colour and tone from its spartan forerunner. Rick: “If No Selfish Heart was a tasteful black and white pencil sketch, Awake Unto gets the crayons out to colour it in.” He’s too modest by half of course, as even the most cursory listen will demonstrate. Awake Unto takes the core elements of Rick’s debut — his towering, mahoganied voice and melodic imagination — and cloaks them in fabrics and hues; elevating them to giddying new heights in the process. https://www.facebook.com/Rick-Redbeard-94385218942 https://twitter.com/RickRedbeard https://www.chemikal.co.uk Praise for ‘No Selfish Heart’ “an album that might have been captured any time over the past 50 years” MOJO [4/5] “Superb…beautiful…a glorious album.” UNCUT [9/10] “The entire album exudes a seductive yearning.” THE SCOTSMAN [4/5] “A delightful record to treasure.” DROWNED IN SOUND [8/10] “Something akin to a masterpiece.” THE LIST [4/5] “This album in a word?

Phone (01224) 211121 Doors 7.30pm Tickets £8+bf in adv / £10 on door Available from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/378047 http://www.facebook.com/interestingmusicpromotions http://twitter.com/IMP_aberdeen EL HOMBRE TRAJEADO Glasgow-based El Hombre Trajeado are back. They are Stevie Jones, Stef Sinclair, Ben Jones and RM Hubbert. Their fourth album Fast Diagonal, will be released by Chemikal Underground on December 2nd. And they’re playing The Tunnels on December 4th. Merry Christmas everyone! Here comes the speil… El Hombre Trajeado first met at Angel Lights Skatepark on the outskirts of Glasgow. After various members’ previous groups (Me, Hubby & Tom, Glue, The Fortune Cookies) disbanded, El Hombre emerged with a mutual love of the SST sound that defined many skate videos of the time. From word go, there was an emphasis on collective composition, lead instruments eschewed in favor of a group sound, and downplayed vocals. The band contributed to many scenes. London label Guided Missile released their first album (1998’s Skipafone) and early shows saw El Hombre play with label mates such as Lung Leg, Yummy Fur, Karelia (always The Blisters to Hombre), and Gilded Lil. They played around Glasgow’s vibrant art scene (with Life Without Buildings, Hasslehound and Park Attack) and with groups like Ganger and Eska who were similarly characterized by adventurous structures, detailed arrangements, and technical quirks. El Hombre worked with Shadazz recordings, most notably collaborating with Steve Sutcliffe on the film Shout Out, and played memorable shows at the hedonistic, era-defining Optimo nightclub, set up by J’ilkes & Twitch. Indeed, Twitch’s previous Edinburgh club, Pure, proved an important formative musical experience for members of the band. El Hombre toured with Sebadoh and also with The Delgados, whose Chemikal Underground are releasing El Hombre’s fourth album, Fast Diagonal. They played concerts with a diverse range of other acts, including Nick Cave & The Dirty Three, Deerhoof, Tortoise, Kreidler, Felix Kubin, Jackie O Motherfucker, Holly Golightly, Mike Watt, and Mum. John Peel was always on board, playing the first 7” and giving the band several sessions. http://www.elhombre.co.uk http://www.chemikal.co.uk Photo Credit: Brian Hartley FIONA SOE PAING The debut album Alien Lullabies from Aberdeenshire based electronic producer and vocalist Fiona Soe Paing introduces you to her intriguing world of unsettling soundscapes and unearthly, off-kilter vocals. Drawing on her Scottish background and Burmese heritage, the tracks in Burmese, English and abstract, experimental vocals create a hypnotic and intense sound, mutating from warped electronic lullabies to brooding murder ballads and tracks for a dystopian disco. The Alien Lullabies album forms the soundtrack to the immersive audio-visual performance of the same name, where the music's other-worldly atmosphere is intensified in the accompanying 3D animations by collaborator Zennor Alexander. Dark and surreal, the combination of the electronica soundtrack, animated film and live vocals create a mesmerising live gig + cinema hybrid, which was rated with Four Stars from the Scotsman in its performances in Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2015. With a background in performance art, Fiona started collaborating with dance music producers as a vocalist while living in Brighton. Her first self-produced track was sung in Burmese, with random lyrics from a phrasebook bought on a trip to visit family in Burma. The track was released on Warner Music after being found on Myspace by the BBC musioologist, the late Charlie Gillett, who included the song on one of his "Sound of The World" compilations, alongside tracks from international artists including Gotan Project and Devendra Banhart. While living in Brighton, Fiona teamed up with animation artist Zennor Alexander to create visuals for her music, and the Alien Lullabies performances are a result of this collaboration, over a ten year period between Brighton UK, Waiheke Island New Zealand and Aberdeenshire Scotland. The audio-visual collaboration developed while Fiona was living on the idyllic pacific island of Waiheke, near Auckland New Zealand, in an isolated bush retreat accessible only on foot or by boat. During this time Fiona worked at the remote, off-grid Eco Village Awaawaroa, founded by crewmembers of the original Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior. The debut performance of Fiona's music and live vocals alongside Zennor's projected animation took place at Waiheke Island cinema in 2008. Following a performance at Auckland Fringe Festival in 2009, a documentary feature on Fiona's work was filmed and screened by New Zealand's national TV station, TV one, and music videos were screened on The Arts Channel on Sky TV New Zealand. After returning to Scotland, Fiona released the "Tower of Babel" EP, which was rated with Four Stars in The Skinny magazine. In 2014, music and animations were awarded an "Outstanding" rating in the Noise Festival online showcase, curated by Brian Eno, and gained a tweet of approval from Vince Clarke of Depeche Mode: “Very, very cool!” In 2015, Fiona worked with Brit Award winner and Mercury Prize nominee Beth Orton, on the Brighter Sounds Manchester Creative Directors series. In August 2015, Fiona performed "Alien Lullabies" in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, as part of Creative Scotland's curated showcase, the "Made In Scotland" programme. The album was supported with a crowd funding campaign on Pledge Music, and part funded by Creative Scotland, and is dedicated to her late father Maung Soe Paing. “Stunning debut...” (Mat Smith, Electronic Sound Magazine – Print issue 22) "Something truly remarkable.” (Robin Murray, Clash Music) “Utterly beguiling and entirely original” (Fortitude Magazine) “... a bewitching, powerful album” ( David McElroy, Almost Predictable) "..unutterably cool, darkly alluring, fascinatingly inventive" (* * * * David Kettle, The Scotsman) "Wonderful, unsettling and incredibly seductive stuff."

Phone (01224) 211121 Doors 7.30pm Tickets £12+bf in adv / £14 on door Available from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/363599 http://www.facebook.com/interestingmusicpromotions http://twitter.com/IMP_aberdeen... PICTISH TRAIL Have you heard? The brand new Pictish Trail album is called FUTURE ECHOES, and it will be coming out on Lost Map / Caroline International on 9th September 2016. And then he’s going on tour. AND playing at The Tunnels. What a time to be alive. Something of a sonic hermit, Pictish Trail has spent the past few years tucked away in his caravan on the Hebridean isle of Eigg, feverishly working on the follow up to Secret Soundz Vol. 1&2, his critically-acclaimed double album of DIY electronic folk-tinged croft pop, released in 2014. Now Spring has sprung, Pictish has emerged with a new clutch of songs, his most confident and accomplished sounding yet. On latest audio-postcard-single Far Gone (Don’t Leave): “This track is a tip of the hat to Fargo, my favourite film (and favourite telly series now),” says Johnny. “The song is about paranoia, the fear of being caught, and how that pushes people into desperate situations. I started writing it for a Coen Brothers tribute show that I took part in a few years ago. I think the organisers expected me to cover a song from a Coen Brothers soundtrack, but instead I decided to use a sample inspired by the theme tune from the Fargo film and add a hip hop beat, a raspy Casio keyboard bassline and a reverb-soaked melody.” SELECT MEDIA PRAISE FOR SECRET SOUNDZ VOL. 1&2: “CHARMING, FRESH AND QUIETLY OUTRÉ” ★★★★ – OBSERVER “AN INFECTIOUS GRAB BAG OF MUSICAL STYLES” ★★★★ – Q “THERE’S AN EMOTIONAL PURITY TO THESE SONGS THAT’S INTOXICATING” – 9/10 – UNCUT “ENCHANTING, HOME-MADE ELECTRO POP” ★★★★ – MOJO “A STRANGE, COMPELLING, EXISTENTIAL BEAUTY” – THE GUARDIAN “STRIKING AND ENRICHING” ALBUM OF THE MONTH ★★★★ – THE SKINNY “GENUINELY EXCEPTIONAL” – DROWNED IN SOUND “LIMITLESS IMAGINATION” – NME “EFFORTLESSLY IMMEDIATE” – CLASH http://www.lostmap.com/ http://www.facebook.com/lostmap http://twitter.com/lostmap http://www.pictishtrail.co.uk/ http://www.facebook.com/pictishtrail http://www.twitter.com/pictishtrail MONOGANON Monoganon’s vibrant blend of disjointed psych-pop and jazz-grunge bristles with energy. Alongside guitarist and singer, John B McKenna, are Andrew Cowan (guitar and backing vocals), Susan Bear (bass), and Keith Smith (drums), all providing dexterous and intuitive accompaniment. F A M I L Y, the band’s 2013 release was recorded in a week in Glasgow’s Centre for Contemporary Arts. The album has been worked over with love and unfettered imagination. Monoganon’s raw talent is barely harnessed and pinned down over the rush of these nine songs. Within the dynamism is an inspiring spontaneity that conveys a bold and beautiful approach to song-writing. An abstract expressionist spirit haunts the recordings as the process of creation seems to be crystalised in each perfect piece of music. The songs, with shifting time signatures and unpredictable structures are laced with ethereal vocal lines that climb and wind to add to their dream-like quality. John’s voice glides along over the chaos, like another instrument and the harmonies are otherworldly. If you are lucky enough to get to one of Monoganon’s rare live shows, (john lives in Malmo, Sweden, while the rest of the band reside in Glasgow) then you should prepare yourself to bear witness some of modern pop’s hottest avant-garde filth, as Lost Map’s sexiest band wow you with an intoxicating display of musical innovation. “A GLORIOUS CURVEBALL...

"River of Slime makes such experimenting his stock-in-trade, marshalling amorphous, often intolerable sounds and harsh, pre-programmed drum loops to challenge the listener before briefly rewarding us with some melodic hooks" The List "Lining up alongside Lomond Campbell's excellent EP is this otherwordly slab of electronic kinetics from Kev Sim aka River of Slime. Veering from the full-on DJ Shadow romp of 'Syclops' to the glitchy eccentrics of 'System of Slime Pt. 2', 'Adventures in Slime and Space' is a fantastic counterpoint to Lomond Campbell's alt-folk outing."
