To celebrate the launch of their split single on Gerry Loves Records, Rick Redbeard and Adam Stafford are playing 3 dates in Scotland. IMP are delighted to welcome them both back to Aberdeen, along with another old friend, Debutant.

Please note there are only a limited number of tickets available for this very intimate evening – our first ever show at Cellar 35!

RICK REDBEARD - is the solo musical alias of Rick Anthony, singer from acclaimed Glasgow sextet The Phantom Band. Born and raised in the Aberdeenshire wilderness, Anthony began using the Redbeard name for his solo material sometime around 2006-7 after swindling it from a pirate. He has performed sporadically around Scotland since then, and the Gerry Loves Records split 7" is the first Rick Redbeard release of any nature. He is currently at work putting the finishing touches to his debut album.



ADAM STAFFORD - is a musician and filmmaker from Falkirk. Formally of the group Y'all is Fantasy Island, he issued two experimental a capella albums, "Awnings" and "Miniature Porcelain Horse Emporium" in 2009. His debut studio set "Build a Harbour Immediately" was released in 2011 and was critically acclaimed by the Scottish press, turning up on a number of end-of-year polls in 2011. He is currently trying to write a horror film set in 1993, about a maintenance train driver who infiltrates a Norse Black Metal cult in the rural North of Scotland.



DEBUTANT - is one man, a guitar and a voice. Although he writes and sings songs, he’s certainly not a singer-songwriter in the traditional sense. Think dreamy pop songs augmented by textured atmospheric soundscapes. Or something like that. Debutant loops and layers guitars, creating shimmering atmospheres over which he adds delicate, breathless and dreamy vocals. Having plied his trade in bands, Phillip began writing songs and compositions that didn’t suit the style of the bands he was in. So he purchased a loop pedal and figured he’d do it all himself. Download his fantastic, ahem, debut album “We Stand Alone Together” (for free!) at the bandcamp link below.

The split 7" that I'm banging on about up there ^ can be streamed here >> http://gerrylovesrecords.com/2012/05/loves009-rick-redbeard-adam-stafford-split-single/

It is bloody marvellous. I'm sure you'll all be able to buy a copy on Saturday as well.

You'll also be able to buy some other stuff at this gig - INCLUDING TICKETS FOR A GIG THAT WE HAVEN'T ANNOUNCED YET!

How mysterious.

Mailing list subscribers will find out first, maybe later on today...
