Talc and Turnip!



The Folk (featuring The Gadgee)
King Bear
The Break-Ups

Saturday 21st July at The Ark, Waterloo Place, Edinburgh for £4.

Thanks to everyone who came along to the Tigerfest gig way back whenever.


We've been a bit light recently but not without reason (congratulations to Liam). The next gig is with the excellent King Bear (featuring the legendary Kilgour brothers for those that were part of the late 80's/early 90's "remember the Green Tree?" indie-scene) whom I saw play an excellent gig last month at Octopus Diamond.....and The Break-Ups whom, rumour has it, consists of two famous-musician-sons. I didn't realise Bobby Gillespie dated Gerry Rafferty in 1976/7 but the resulting twins have decided to set up camp in our own capital city. I believe the caliber of session musicians was a clincher.

This week I have mostly been watching Vic Reeves Big Night Out on dvd, reading Rip It Up And Start Again post punk 1978-1984, watching Wilko Johnson in amazement on youTube and listening to Messthetic #101 D.I.Y 1978-81 London and Roy Orbison making me cry.

Gadgee, could you record Tam O'Shanter for me? I've found a few on the internet but they're all read by women, and as I had in my mind, not unreasonably, an image of Burns, or at least a man, reading it, it's ruined my impression of his work. Come on chief, do this skellum a favour.

Son, how can I learn if you keep all your knowledge to yourself? Am I going to have to dig a tunnel from my window to yours, and even after that, meet you in the middle of our town? I feel like Scott, with you as my Amundsen. Where ever I get to, I see flag planted by you. You beat me all the time. I'm your disciple but you can't leave it all to me. Come out of the desert and give me direction.

Hello,

I found this blog because I couldn't remember the name of that Scottish artist, the one who made "Nuclear Sail". So I googled the phrase and found you. Now I'd like to hear what your music sounds like, at least before you go completely pop ...
