Lineup and Details for White Noise on Wed 1st September 2010
Live guests include:
9th June – Piltocan
Pilotcan are a rock band from Edinburgh, Scotland. Based around the song writing of EVOL DJ Keiron Mellotte. They have 3 LPs out on EVOL Records, 2 singles on Rock action, and one Peel Session available through Strange Fruit. Currently Pilotcan are recording their 4th LP "The bats fly out from under the bridge" in Chem 19 Studio with Delgado drummer Paul Savage.
30th June – Homework
Homework hail form Inverness, Mull and Dumfries and were formed in Edinburgh in early 2008. They are made up of Oli Kass (vocals, guitar and programming), Ross Baird (vocals, guitar and moog), Ally Dennis (bass and backing vocals) and Richard Kass (drums). From the outset they were clear that they wanted to make interesting, original and emotive music and to try and push the boundaries of what could be considered commercial. They draw their influences from a wide variety of acts including Wilco, The Chemical Brothers, Cinematic Orchestra and Talking Heads.
In 2009, after a year of writing and rehearsing Homework released their debut EP “Sleepless Nights” recorded at The Depot with Ric Rogass. The EP is available from all good indie record shops/major download sites. 2009 proved to be an exciting year for the band as they opened the T Break stage at T in the Park.
Homework went back in to the studio in November to begin recording their first album which is currently untitled. Work is continuing now at the Depot for the album which will be released later this year.
Praise for Sleepless Nights:
"the kind of thing that Elbow would be making if they’d been listening to Aereogramme rather than Coldplay. For once, an EP with no filler and given the many highs on this, very well worth seeking out...an epic effort" - **** Is This Music
"the kind of sonic entertainment you wouldn't want to ignore...it would appear a wise bet to keep 'em peeled for Homework in 2010" - The Skinny - January 2010
"All I See is our track of the month for August" - Under The Radar, The Scotsman
Lissie & Alan Pownall
7pm doors, £7
"One of the year’s true finds, Lissie maintains the flame for the true rebel country spirit with her finely-etched songs and smokey vocals" – The Mirror
"Lissie draws comparisons to Stevie Nicks and Chrissie Hynde, but is also able to transcend the past to become a present day icon for lovers of both blues, folk, and country." - Q Magazine
"Lissie has the voice, the songs and the image to be huge in 2010... A talent way too big for just one canyon." – Sunday Times
"Band Of Horses endorsed freckle-nosed country-pop from the mid-west via California. Fuelled by tequila, tomato juice and a broken heart." – BBC
Rough Trade say Alan Pownall’s album, True Love Stories is “the folk pop album of the year” and is “a perfectly pitched summer album of laid back acoustic strumming, warm production and mouth-watering harmonies.”
