this is SOON! yay!
Second option I'm afraid. I can't stand flying, I usually take the train (Paris- Aberdeen 2 years ago) but that was too expensive. Beware I might murder someone when I arrive in Glasgow!

Sebastian (Cineplexx) has confirmed that he will be joined by Ally Kerr and Duglas Stewart. Unfortunately, Paisley and Charlie and Tom (indiemp3) have had to cancel. They will both be at Popfest in spirit. We´ll play some Paisley and Charlie and will ask Tom to choose 10 records he would like played in his absence. Joyti has provided his 10 songs. That´s all for now. More news soon.

Aw, it's a nice write-up in The List, y'all! They highlight five of the brilliant bands playing and illustrate the piece with a new photograph of my favourite. :-) I'm properly excited.
Glasgow Popfest brings together The Felt Tips, The Orchids and The Power Cut Choir

* Date: 24 November 2010
* Written by: David Pollock

Must-See acts at Glasgow's new festival

5 REASONS TO GO TO…

1. The Power Cut Choir
Welcome to Glasgow’s newest music festival, which presents a bunch of bands and DJs in the indie-pop, post-punk and twisted folk veins over three days and two venues. There’s way too much to go into here, so instead The List will choose five of the best for you and promise there are many more where that came from. Let’s start with this Glasgow-based pop choir, successors to The Parsonage’s style.

2. The Orchids
Freshly returned with their fifth album The Lost Star earlier this year, the classic Scots twee pop outfit will return the audience to their 1980s heyday, back when they were signed to the seminal Sarah Records and producing the kind of sweet hearted indie tracks which defined Glasgow back in the day.

3. The Felt Tips
A heavily-accented Glasgow quartet (pictured) with a penchant for jangling guitars and elaborate, swoonsome lyricism that owns at least a small debt to Belle & Sebastian. Their prime influence is obvious though: they have a song called ‘Dear Morrissey’.

4. The Hardy Boys
Formed in Greenock and active in the second half of the 1980s, this reformed bunch are a forgotten gem. Massive congratulations are also due for owning the mighty album title The Hardy Boys Play Songs From The Lenin And McCarthy Songbook.

5. The Electric Pop Group
Adorable and deeply gorgeous music with a shoegaze chime from Gothenburg brothers Erik and Martin Aamot, whose second album Seconds was released earlier this year on Californian label Matinée Recordings.

And that’s your lot for now, but a whole twenty-three others bands will be playing, which is pretty damn good value for a twenty quid weekend ticket.

In SWG3, Glasgow, Fri 3 & Sat 4 Dec; Stereo, Glasgow, Sun 5 Dec. Check listings for full line-up. http://www.bubblegumrecords.org.uk/glasgowpopfest

That's some jacket Kev's wearing. It reminds me a bit of one of those wrinkly dogs.

I only hope he wear a different jacket on the night. I'll either smirk at him or pet him. I'm not sure which would be worse?

Glasgow Popfest is honoured to announce that Nick Garrie will present the 40th anniversary edition of his classic 1969 album"The Nightmare of J.B. Stanislas" on Saturday 4th December

Ladies and Gentlemen, the legend that is Nick Garrie

Everyone who is irrevocably hooked on music knows that, hidden in the archives of some record labels, there are unique and incomparable gems that have remained unjustly hidden over the years, due in large part to the strange whims of the industry and its destiny. Elefant Records is proud to definitively recover one of these albums, maybe one of the most important yet to be discovered. After giving the necessary recognition to Nick Garrie with that “49 Arlington Gardens” which he released two years ago with Duglas T. Stewart (BMX BANDITS), Ally Kerr, Norman Blake (TEENAGE FANCLUB), and a full entourage of huge and renowned Scottish musicians, the time has come to focus the spotlight on his legendary work. And the thing is, “The Nightmare of J B Stanislas” is a missing link in music history, a cursed album that oozes inspiration from all sides, a mix of the intensity of Tim Buckley with the psychedelic touch of THE LEFT BANKE, inimitable and inexplicable.

The story begins with a young Garrie who in 1969 is called by the French label DiscAZ (also home to artists such as Brigitte Bardot and Michael Polnareff), to record a debut album, after they heard some demo tracks that impressed them tremendously. Eddie Vartan (Sylvie Vartan’s brother, and an important representative of the French rock scene) is put in charge of production, for which he seeks the help of a 56-musician orchestra to fill the album with arrangements and melodic lines – and album that its composer had brought acoustic and bare. The result is the “The Nightmare of J B Stanislas” in which the seriousness of Garrie’s melodies, his abstract stories flooded with a Saint Tropez breeze, create a strange chemical reaction with Vartan’s orchestrations, and give way to this incredibly addictive work, an authentic canon of beauty, of imagination, of extravagant arrangements full of fantasy. The end of this exciting dream comes when, few short days after the disc goes on sale, the head of DiscAZ, Lucien Morisse, commits suicide, leaving the album orphaned, with no promotion or plan, which resulted in very few copies every getting sold.

All of this is just cause for this definitive edition, which includes the original album, those demos that so impressed the people at DiscAZ, his first single, some recordings done in Portugal in 2002, and above all, “The Cuts”, the recuperation of some of the compositions from that era that were never recorded, and that are now recorded by Garrie himself accompanied by the Scottish crew from “49 Arlington Gardens”. And to all of this we have to add the detailed and deluxe edition of an incredible 44-page book in which Garrie tells the story of his own life, and with it, the story of an album that will never again be called cursed. This work is what has won over people like Gary Olson (LADYBUG TRANSISTOR), Francis McDonald (NICE MAN, TEENAGE FANCLUB), Guille Milkyway (LA CASA AZUL) and our beloved Tracyanne Campbell (CAMERA OBSCURA), and now it’s time it gets its what it deserves, and this incredible edition is the first step.

CD1 THE NIGHTMARE OF J.B. STANISLAS - 1. The nightmare of J.B. Stanislas 2. Can I stay with you 3. Bungles tours 4. David’s prayer 5. Ink pot eyes 6. The wanderer 7. Stephanie city 8. Little bird 9. Deeper tones of blue 10. Queen of queens 11. Wheel of fortune 12. Evening

CD2 THE CUTS - 1. Seashore 2. Josefina 3. St. Tropez whore 4. Three old men 5. Que sera, sera (Whatever will be, will be)

LOST AND FOUND - 6. Summer nights 7. Wine and roses 8. Love in my eyes 9. Queen of spades [First single 1968] 10. Close your eyes [First single 1968] 11. Cambridge town [demo 1968] 12.

I'm completely stressed out.
Last year, Eurostars services were suspended because of the snow. And if my Eurostar arrives late, I'll miss the bus. And if the bus arrives late, I'll miss the first concerts.
