The Postcards – Leith Depot, Edinburgh – 2 Aug 2019

Well we’re all still on a high at Postcards Central after a brilliant gig at the best damn venue in Edinburgh, the Leith Depot.  Thanks to the guys at the Depot especially Jamie on the desk and to the wonderful We are Silhouettes for organising the gig and for such a storming set. Set list below. We optimistically added a song as a potential encore and it happened. Thanks to the superb crowd who clearly enjoyed it as much as we did.

Her Crooked Heart – Leith Depot, Edinburgh – 2 July 2019

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Her Crooked Heart is the new project/band from one of my favourite American singer/songwriters Rachel Ries. All her songs but joined on this long tour by 3 versatile musicians, Siri Undlin (Humbird) Adelyn Strei (Adelyn Rose) and Hilary James (We Are the Willows). This makes for a different experience from the last time I saw Rachel, but the songs are just as lovely and all the better for bigger, tasteful arrangements.

Busy and appreciative audience at Leith Depot, lots of long term fans, witnessed an intimate performance with a great atmposphere including a brlliant support set from the very talented and entertaining Lou McLean. They even did the ‘come off the stage and sing without mics’ thing to end with. Lovely!

Robert Forster – St Luke’s, Glasgow – 17 May 2019

My band mate friends are big fans of the Go-Betweens so we just had to catch the legendary Robert Forster, though I really didn’t know much about his music. Well it was a delight to see the happy smiling faces of so many fans. And though I quite enjoyed the sound of the songs and the band … without any emotional engagement with the songs they sounded a bit samey, didn’t mean that much to me and I was left a bit cold. Still a nice special occasion.

6.5/11 – Attended by George, Chris, Neil and Dave
