So yes, we are slowly creaking back into life, here at Song, by Toad and our first gig of 2013 is already approaching fast. Next weekend – i.e. Saturday 19th January – we will be back at Henry’s for a fine lineup, including one of our favourite Edinburgh bands Plastic Animals, and two very, very new bands indeed, barely yet to play a gig never mind one through in Edinburgh.
Both Garden of Elks and The Yawns emerged very late last year, the former with a single on Soundcloud and the latter with an album on Electropapknit Records. It’s a fine lineup of excellent guitar music, and apparently Henry’s has new owners and has enjoyed a lick of paint since I was there last, so I am rather looking forward to returning.
