A lot has been happening behind the scenes over the last few months, the fruits of which should become apparent over the next wee whilee. This will include the ‘Dear Aberdeen…’ project where we asked local musicians to create pieces of music around letters that had been sent to or from Aberdeen, the first Fitlike Records sampler album, along with debut album releases from Death Let Her, Best Girl Athlete and The Great Bear. There is also going to be a pretty cool evening of Doric entertainment featuring Fitlike artists and friends on 5th December…details to follow very soon!
This wee beauty called Carve Every Word should have been released in October but a hold up at the pressing plant means we will all have to wait until late January. Those of you familiar with CS Buchan may be alarmed to find out that Best Girl Athlete is in fact his 15 year old daughter Katie. Young Buchan is fast developing into a brilliant songwriter and performer and is set to make a big impact. In the meantime you can find out the latest at the BGA website.
Want to hear the latest Fitlike releases and projects? Fire over to the Bandcamp page. As an incentive, there are a couple of free album downloads by those highly entertaining, psychedelic neeps, The Maternal Bum Bond Connexion. Approach with caution!
Fit like en? Delighted to be putting on a free show this Saturday at 2pm at the old 1-UP records shop on Belmont Street, Aberdeen. The kind folks in the culture team from Aberdeen City Council at ’17’ have given us the premises for the day and we are going to have a screening of a short independent film about socialism in Aberdeen, some solo piano pieces from Chemical Callum and a performance from Best Girl Athlete. There was going to be a fundraising, emotive exhibition in aid of the Auchnagatt Blind Orphans in 17 on Saturday afternoon but we are more important and the orphans have been sent packing. There will be quite a few events and releases coming up so please keep checking for updates.
