THURS 22ND - LONE PIGEON, PIP DYLAN, 8PM, 5

who is this Long Pigeon bloke? Know the Beta Band?Anyway, the band's

co-founder and co-writer, Gordon Anderson, never really got to take part in

the Beta Band's success because he had to return to Scotland for health

reasons. So, a few years back, he started doing his own thing and dubbed

himself Lone Pigeon. (The Beta Band's original name was the Pigeons.) In

2001, Lone Pigeon released the Touched by Tomoko EP and in 2002, Concubine

Rice on Domino Records. Both albums garnered substantial critical acclaim.

His songwriting touches on an ancient, almost medievil style. Lone Pigeons

melancholic approach creates a natural yearning content, which any lover of

good songs should find irresistable. You will hear faint strains of 60's era

songwriting in there; think Fred Niel, Dylan, George Harrison and Barret.

Anyway, he's coming to promote his new album 'Schoozzzmmi' and I personally

think this will be a must see gig for anyone interested in good music.

His twin bro' Pip Dylan will also be playing a set of his own brand of

acoustic folk. With references to Bert Jansch, John Renbourn and Jim

O'Rourke, Pip approaches songwriting with sincerity, and guitar playing with

shameless flare.

As if that wasn't enough to have you all chompin' at the bit, our very own

Ziggy Fantastic (Staccato Set) will be departing from his usual Open Mic set

to play a set of harrowing originals. www.lonepigeon.co.uk
