COPY HAHO

From Stonehaven, a hotspot for great music, Copy Haho have been increasingly impressive as their career has taken off. They have just finished recording their first long play at Scotland's finest studio, Chem 19, with Jamie Savage. Very well known on the Scottish / UK music circuit and radio, this is a rare opportunity to catch them live in Aberdeen. Last year saw them tour the continent with their pals Los Campesinos. Expect some new songs to be previewed and a GREAT headline set as its been over five years since our last Copy Haho promotion.

The tourists from this show will be present at Primavera Festival and all their current releases are on the Brooklyn label Olde English Spelling Bee which is gaining lots of plaudits for the artists it has released product by.

JULIAN LYNCH

We are delighted that Julian is to return to play another IMP event. Julian studied at the University of Aberdeen and played a gig as Lese Majesty opening for Larkin Grimm at The Tunnels, and boy did he WOW. It is no surprise he is starting to get superb reviews for his ehthnomusicology work and his releases cover an amazing array of music genres that are really difficult to define. His new long play Terra is scheduled for the end of April and is already being touted as even better than Mare his last release, so that will be some feat.

DUCKTAILS

This review says a lot: "New collection of sunbleached songs and strange, melancholy instrumentals from Matt Mondanile aka Ducktails, who also passes muster as the guitarist from Real Estate. Mondanile combines a hazy surf/pop sensibility with primitive instrumentation to generate a teenage neverland complete with heavenly Beach Boys harmonies and dreamy psychedelic guitars. Some of the instrumentals almost touch on the kind of naive basement pop of Calvin Johnsons great run of early K cassettes but theres also a heavy 80s Flying Nun/Go Betweens vibe complete with chiming Byrds-style guitars and keening, laconic vocals. As with all Mondaniles work the simplicity of its construction kinda belies the emotional weight of the material making this a supremely personal and inexplicably affecting release. The best Ducktails yet? Either way this is a totally memorable set that is impossible to get out of your head".

BIG TROUBLES

Debut full-length from this duo / quartet who play euphoric fuzz pop inspired by UK noise like The Jesus & Mary Chain, Pastels, My Bloody Valentine, Meat Whiplash et al but given a basement USA overhaul so that it touches on the less jam / more song focussed end of the Twisted Village catalogue.

Wait, first on at 8pm, four acts, curfew at 10.30pm... That's not a lot of time per act, is it?

I'm led to believe that Big Troubles will be backing up both Ducktails and Julian, so there will be very little turnaround between the first three acts.

I'm so excited about this show. We'll be playing so many new songs that very few people have heard, AND we get to play with bands I genuinely love, which doesn't happen all that often.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh yeah I got that a while ago but for some reason only listened to it a few times, despite really liking it! Going to put it on this afternoon thanks to this! So, thanks!

Think i'll go to this.

Really like the Ducktails new album. Like Real Estate which got me into Ducktails :)

Don't know much about the others but will have a listen :)

If we get a decent turn out for this & we have a great night maybe Matt would bring Real Estate to Aberdeen next time....:up:
