Tambourine Suicides – Midnight in the Garden of You (Single)

 

Edinburgh’s very own dedicated followers of unrequited passion – Tambourine Suicides return with a single that is aimed at rejection and loneliness. Heartbreak and romantic desperation. Nothing is more profund than heartbreak and all that entails. So rejoice and celebtrate the romantic despair that we must all suffer to realise that we are alive!

 

‘I know it’s only a dream. But your’e the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.’

 

 

Loanhead Gala Day – Various Artists Indie Compilation Album

 

Lone Head Records have released some weird and wonderful music over the years. So it was with great pleasure to put out this album with the sounds of the Scottish Underground Indie Scene.

‘If you really want to know what is going on in any city, listen to the music created by its bands and artists. It tell you all you need to know.’

This 25 track album is a great mixture of all the bands and artists that have recorded and released music on Lone Head Records since 2000. I have to say that I am so proud of all the music on this album. It brings back such happy and wonderful memories. I hope you have time to check out the songs.

‘These tracks are the authentic sound of Edinburgh, the lives and the loves of the city, the dreams and the despair, the people and the places.’

 

 

C Harness – Assistance Required (Prozac Mix)

C - HarnessI personally don’t know many songs about social anxiety and social alienation. But this is one I was involved in. C Harness (not his real name) is a good friend. He is a bus driver here in Edinburgh.  One day he was over at the house and we were talking about songwriting. I was asking him about song ideas from real life. Then we came to the conclusion that something dark like social anxiety should be the topic for a track.

We recorded the song over the next 3 – 4 hours upstairs in my bedroom studio. He played the organ and did the bass. I played the guitar and got the drums and beats completed. We both did some vocal duties. I mixed it the next day and it was complete after a touch of mastering a week later.

For a song about such a depressing subject it has proved an undeniably popular track – much to our satisfaction.  I think people like to know they are not alone when it comes to having problems and issues.  Surely one of the great appeals of  bands like The Smiths or Radiohead?

The darkest hour always come before the dawn…
