Huge thanks to all who came along the Lemon Tree on the 6th March for the label showcase evening. If you were there you would have seen brilliant performances from Death Let Her, The Great Bear, Steven Milne, Best Girl Athlete and Tryptamines. I had a great time and it was very gratifying to see so many new faces. Special thanks to George Mackie for taking some great images on the evening. Next up…Best Girl Athlete at St Machar’s Cathedral supported by The Great Bear and Philip Joseph Rae!
Those cheeky chimps at iiMusic in the Academy on Belmont Street, Aberdeen have agreed to take in any future Fitlike Records releases to sell in-store as well as online. Check out the wee page they have set up for us here!
He’s Calling Me Over is the latest free download from forthcoming Best Girl Athlete album Carve Every Word, out on March 2nd. This track is a cracker and was described by Folk Radio UK as ‘powerful and pretty amazing’. Read about it here and download from the A Badge of Friendship page here.
Right, get yir bums doon to the Lemon Tree on Friday 6th March for our label showcase evening. You will see a mixture of blues, acoustic, electronic psychedelia, beautiful piano and other musical nonsense. You can get tickets here for only £7 and £5 for students. Performances from Death Let her, The Great Bear, Steven Milne (of The Little Kicks), Best Girl Athlete and Tryptamines.
A few folk have been asking after this guys work and I’m pleased to say we are very near getting every ready for release, just need to add the tubular bells, death synth overdubs and complete the gritty pube syncopation edits. Personally, I think it’s brilliant and canna wait!
These fellas are a bloody great live band, have released two VERY fine albums and are lovely individuals. I will genuinely be very sad to see them come to an end but they have strong connections to the label and will continue to work with us in different capacities. If you can’t go and see them in Peterhead on 7th March at The Harbour Lights, I would definitely encourage you to check out their albums, ‘Commit’ and ‘Empty Your Lungs and Breathe’.
Delighted to be asked to provide a couple of Fitlike Records artists to play at the superb Live at Captain Toms series this Saturday 31st January. I remember Captain Toms from many years ago, starting out in a small studio in Aberdeen’s Dee Street and it’s been wonderful to see this develop and grow into a mainstay of the music scene in Aberdeen, supporting and promoting artists and musicians within the city and beyond. Our own Death Let Her and The Great Bear will each perform a track and I will be chatting to my favourite teuchter Scott Ironside and the lovely Magenta Lust. I recommend tuning in to watch the proceedings at www.kpx.tv between 11am and 1pm.
