Recommended Posts

SUNDAY 7TH NOVEMBER 2010

@ THE LEMON TREE

REMEMBER REMEMBER

+ SUPPORT

5.00

7.30PM DOORS

TICKETLINK:THE LEMON TREE LOUNGE : Productions : Remember Remember

Based in Glasgow, Remember Remember has been playing elaborately staged shows in and around the city for the past few years and has been producing some of the most epic-sounding and ambitious music weve heard in a long time.

If youre a fan of the likes of Mice Parade, Animal Collective or Bjork along with artists such as Philip Glass, Brian Eno and Yann Tiersen then you really should take the time to check out his work.

"Remember Remember- aka Graeme Ronald- excels at creating existential soundscapes through looped samples, minimalist keys and twinkling glockenspiels that have the power to burrow through to the very core of your emotional being... A sensitive debut of epic proportions." NME 8/10

Will probably head along to this. Seen him twice - once was good but the other less so. Supports might make up my mind.

I really liked the album and look forward to hearing this new EP coming out.

Have you seen him playing it with the full band? Really good.

Both times there were around three others on stage with him, I think. Are there normally a few more?

It was just when I saw him with Stars of the Lid that I found the whole performance to be a bit slack. The only other time I caught him was at that Triptych all-dayer at the Tramway in Glasgow a couple of years ago which he opened and I thought he was great. The Tunnels performance just didn't seem to click as well as that one.

The sound/feel of the album is great though and I like how it differs from the live stuff.

They were really good when they played as a three piece at Biyoni a couple of years ago

There really aren't enough gigs in hairdressers these days, are there?

:up:

he was decent supporting max richter in glasgow, and decent with SotL in aberdeen. slightly less impressive if you've heard steve reich's electric counterpoint, but yeah. it is a shame i'm/we're not organised enough because i would have thrown the improvised ethereal drone hat into the ring for supporting.

but yeah - i will probably be along.

Saw him support SotL at Tunnels, thought there were some good moments in there but wasn't fully convinced. Never did get the album but I was listening to a Rock Action sampler the other week and the song that was on that was good. Night before Motorhead though. Damn.

The album is really good. It actually surprised me how good it was and I frequently find myself dipping back into it. As Panda Strong suggested, there's a fairly evident Steve Reich influence, but the compositions are largely brilliant.

Moon Unit and Matricarians for support acts.
