This Toad Session has been a wee while coming, but frankly I think it’s fucking superb. The videos have turned out wonderfully, Neil and Gav have done an amazing job with the sound, Fee and Dylan have taken some great photos. I’m happy as a pig in shit, quite frankly. Johnny Lynch (Mr. Pictish Trail) had plenty of time to kill, so we drank some beer, took our time and talked a monumental amount of shite. The podcast is really strong this time around, I think. We talk a lot but I think it’s pretty decent stuff for the most part, not random blather, so I really think it should be an enjoyable listen. Hopefully, anyway.
Johnny picked really nice songs, too. He’s recorded a couple of unreleased ones, and a Lone Pigeon cover, as well as his Top of the Pops hit single Winter Home Disco. It makes for a really nice mix. As per usual the songs are all available for downloading, hotlinking and sharing around, the videos can be watched below, on our YouTube (yeuch) page or our Vimeo page, and the photos are all to be seen as a slideshow here or on the general Song, by Toad Flickr page here. Go to Blueback Hotrod for more of Dylan’s live music photography. And enjoy the podcast – it can be played below, and the tracklisting is at the bottom of the page. I’m really proud of this, people, so I hope you enjoy it.
