Friday is Back on Fresh Air, Plus a House Gig on Wednesday
Yes, this coming Wednesday, the fifteenth of February!!! Get it in yer diaries! This is going to be the Edinburgh launch for Randolph’s Leap’s rather excellent new album Randolph’s Leap and the Curse of the Haunted Headphones.
It’s a brilliant album of lo-fi charm, moving effortlessly from humour to pathos, and will be available on Peenko Records on a limited run of 30 tapes. Well, 29 as far as you’re concerned, because I will be having one.
Also on the bill will be Molly Nilsson, who is pals with friends of ours from Manchester and touring the UK at the moment. She too is a little eccentric, but completely compelling, and I reckon this could be one of our best house gigs yet.
In other news, Brian, El and myself are back on Fresh Air Radio from half past three this afternoon. It will be your usual pre-pub Friday Five show, and I might even sneak on some naughty previews of Song, by Toad Records’ upcoming releases too, just because I am too excited to keep them to myself, but don’t want them out there in a format people can rip and pass around.
On air from 3:30pm UK time – listen live here.
Now, as to the Friday Fives themselves, here are your five stupid questions for this evening:
1. Given every venue in Edinburgh seems to be closing, where should we host gigs in future.
2. Where is the oddest place you’ve been to a gig so far?
3. If you had to name a venue, what would you call it?
4. Who doesn’t seem to be touring, but you would really like to see?
5. What are you looking forward to in your immediate gig-going future?
And in terms of the Song, by Toad House Gig, tickets are a mere £5, all of which goes straight to the artists, and can be purchased by clicking on the link below:
