[GIG] Amy Sawers + Staccato Set + Lorenzo Snow Collective + Delawair @ The Lemon Tree

Recommended Posts

Amy will be releasing her new ep 'Between A Canvas Sky And A Cardboard Sea'. To add to the joy Amy has invited along a few choice acts: Staccato Set will be making a rare Aberdeen appearance before disappearing for a while to write and record, Lorenzo Snow Collective will be pounding out the Alt Countryesque riffs one more time before going global and Delawair will be supplying sublime acoustic renditions of all their forthcoming hits.

Separating all of this with a selection of disks that will have all doing the 'Slosh and line dancing' will be Graeme Duncan of Interesting Music mythology, to be aided by Alun Hughes, if he gets back from Paris in time.

All of this will be introduced live by the inimitable Nick Casino who will bring a Rat Pack sparkle to this rare evening.

'Slosh and line dancing'

Perfecto. I'm glad I bought that Jimmy Shand CD in Edinburgh today!

I actually believe that... You gonna mix in some beats?

I'm going to add here that this will be the last time Staccato set will be appearing live for sometime, not that we play much anyways, and certainly the last time most of the soon to be 'back catalogue' will be heard in the live arena (over use of muscal terminology?). Once Ziggy is famous with FOUND we will be wedging our way further into the music industry as Zig's underground side project...

I'll be dusting down my big sparkly buckle, stetson, tight jeans and gingham cowboy shirt special Graeme... It's been hours since I wore them last!

Jim

Well IT IS true

Normally I'd explain that my meetings are usually in shitty hospital conference rooms, but this one is in the Natural History Museum in Paris - Fukkin A!

Aherm

*cough*

*splutter*

*cough*

This is sure to be a lovely night with all the bands sounding rather splendid of late. Staccato Set will be rehearsal free (for some months) thus providing he cabaret aspect of the night... Oh dear. At least Ziggy is making it north though, in between important other stuff with his 'OTHER, PROPER, band that is...

Awe jeez. Wonder if Ziggy/anyone will be in Aberdeen or go to that? I'm worried now

If he came to this I could spin a Fiddlers Bid tune (it would go well with Jimmy Shand anyway). Do you think that that would keep the Sheltland twit happy? Oops, I hope I haven't started an international outcry due to racism!

Brilliant... hehehe

What with the 'Big Bovver' racist fiasco and now this 'Iocal music promters battle of wills that can only end in tears. I'm immigrating to a country where music is loved for being music, and there are no fiddles! It has always been said that, Religion, borders and Fiddles are the route cause of all wars!

I would remove reigion and add control over natural resources and political egoism to the list!

fiddles do have a lot to answers for tho!

And I just thought all you guys wanted to put on good music! Well there you are, would explain things about why the knew festival 'T In Iraq' is being greeted with a great deal of scepticism and has been accused of having a hidden agenda!

A Sturdy little interview with Amy in the P&J today and also No1 in the Evening Express' "10 Great Thing To Do This Weekend"...

Personally I would say that No7 is also up there but that's on Sunday so I can do that too.

GAAAAH! Bloody Air France, overselling the flight by _at least_ 8 places on a 50 capacity flight meant I was stuck in the CDG airport Sheraton Hotel instead of being at this no doubt wonderful evening.

My mood has not been helped by delays getting the flight home this morning.

Hope all went well, that it was a blinder and that I wasn't missed *too* much ;)

Sadly, and frustratingly, I missed Delawair.

Lorenzo Snow Collective were fucking magnificent, though.

Someone sign them and pay them money to release songs and play live.

Nice turnout

Great music, both live and from Graeme.

Swell Compere.

Cd's sold well.

Smiley faces at the end of the night.

Special thanks to Graeme and Nick
