Loch Lomond came over to the UK in May to play some dates in Scotland, so we took the opportunity to record a Toad Session with them. We first met the band when we went out to Pickathon in 2008 and interviewed them there. Since then we have released a split 12″ and an EP by them over here on Song, by Toad Records.
Elephants & Little Girls is actually from that split 12″ release, but the other three songs are new, and from their next album. That album has been finished for about three months now I believe, although I have yet to hear it, so all I know about it is from these three songs.
Many thanks to Gavin Tarling for recording and mixing the session, to Matthew Swan and Fiona Buckle for their help with the photography and video cameras, and to Chris Bryant for being in the band for the day. Feel free to help yourselves to the downloads, and enjoy the videos. The whole interview can be heard on the podcast below, the video at the top of the page is sort of a general video of the whole day, and those of the individual songs are embedded below.
