"It's just pure dead brilliant" – Liz Lochhead
The last year has been tough for all us musicians. We were lucky to have our new album, Acid Croft Vol 9, in the can when lockdown happened, but, save for a few online opportunities, we have not been able to hit the road to promote it or meet our audience at the merch table.
Funds are low, but we are very proud of the new album and keen to release it on vinyl. In order to help us pay for manufacture we need to collect pre-orders upfront.
Apart from the recommendation of poet and playwright Liz Lochhead (see above) we've been delighted with the reviews for the new album. Here are a few more ...
"An epic cinematic set ... it moves the spirit as much as the body *****" – Oz Hardwick, RnR Magazine
"A zest and zeal that lives up to their reputation as modernisers of traditional Scottish music via their own genre acid croft ****" – Colin Irwin, Mojo
Most of our past year has been filled with other projects, domestic and otherwise, and not being able to get together as often as we'd like. However we have made a few mad cap promotional videos, formed out of our own imagination and produced by the Shoogle collective. Here's one we brought out in September ...
We have all the elements in place for this new release: vinyl master by the maestro Calum Malcolm, cover art by Ashley Cook that will look awesome in 12 inch, and eight kick-ass tracks for cranking up to 11.
All we need is the cash to take it to press. Pre-orders are available for £21 (black vinyl) and £24 (green vinyl) inc UK p&p (additional postage charges apply to overseas orders). We also have a few signed copies up for grabs.
So please pre-order today and tell all your friends!
