Friday 8th August – The Beresford Lounge, Glasgow
There were a few negative issues that surrounded this event but I’m going to start with the positives; all the acts were amazing. Chrissy Barnacle opened the show and having only listened to her music online I was really looking forward to her live set. She has a wonderful storytelling manner and made the intimate crowd feel at ease instantly. Chrissy has an amazing guitar style, picking her way through beautiful melodic sections and adding bass and percussion parts periodically, it was quite mesmerising. Her voice is stunning! So pure and honest, she glides through her range with ease and even delighted the crowd with her lupine howl. I loved every song in her set and found it difficult to pick out a favourite but I’ve gone for ‘Sandstone’ because I love the lyrics so much,
“I’ve boiled a million kettles, to fill all of my water bottles
This wont be easy or quick, but it is what we need
I’m sweating you out of me”

I urge you all to download her FREE ‘Hazelnuts EP’ from BandCamp, which includes ‘Sandstone’ and 5 other fantastic tracks.

Next up were Made Of Glass, my new favourite Edinburgh based band and I was really looking forward to seeing them live for the first time – they did not disappoint. Despite the issues with sound (live music vs Glasgow City Council) and cheap in-ear headphones, their set was really cool. I loved the production of the backing sounds / vocals and although I was longing for the addition of a bass sub, I thought they played a great set. Their track ‘The Night’ was the stand out track of the night for me, however this is as yet unreleased, so instead I’ve chosen ‘Labyrinth’ for it’s pure electro/acoustic goodness.
Draped in black, Duncan’s energy is amazing, Nicky’s delivery has a distinctive celtic twang and their face-paint is intriguing. They are definitely a band to watch out for in the future.

We played next and it was fantastic to have Phil back with us on guitar after so many shows away without him. Due to the sound (volume) issues, we played what should have been a fairly high-energy set with slight reservation. The venue was not really suitable for a band like us; they seem to have a lot of problems with Environmental Health (residential neighbours complain about the sound pollution on a regular basis) and already have a “no acoustic drum kits” rule in place, which we managed to get around by borrowing an electric kit for the evening from The Academy of Music & Sound. After sound checks were completed there was a “no amps” announcement, which was just not possible for either Sacre Noir or Jen Stevens & The Hiccups, so we’d arranged to turn everything down as much as possible. In complete contrast to the phenomenal bass sound we’d had at the last gig with Phil (Bannerman’s 17th July 2014), this performance was controlled but well received. The people we spoke to afterwards seemed to get where we were coming from musically and we’re positive about the front of house sound, so maybe it was lacking on stage due to the small monitor that the room had.

Last up were the fantastic Jen Stevens & The Hiccups. Having travelled over two hours to get here, and on the back of my comments to them about how great the music scene is in Glasgow and what a cool place it is in general, I was really disappointed for them… this was not the introduction I’d hoped we could provide. They played for a good 40 minutes and included my favourite track ‘Middle of the Road’. Everyone in the room was blown away by their set and they have definitely left a lasting impression on those who were seeing them live for the first time.

I’d really hoped for a better night for their introduction to Scotland, but at one point just before the end of Jen Steven’s & The Hiccups set, a member of staff from the venue came barging into the venue space shouting “turn it down”. When the repost from a lively audience member came “turn it up”, his response was “no, turn it down, the council are in”. I was genuinely embarrassed by this episode. Apparently the DJ downstairs, who we could hear above the band already, was not causing a problem, but because our space was closer to the residents it was us that needed to turn down again. I have never been so disappointed by a venue and their ability to book appropriate events for their space or their ability to communicate in a professional manner. There are another dozen (at least) issues that plagued this even but I feel enough space has been given to the negatives and overall, despite everything, I did really enjoy all the music on the night and that’s a huge positive. Another positive is that our sound engineer for the evening, David, was great. He stayed calm throughout all the ups and downs, and managed to get a really great sound for all the acts. These two points have definitely been consistent traits of this year’s tour; we have played with some amazing acts and have met some really talented people, who we’ll definitely keep in touch with.
We managed to miss the last train home by just a second or two, but thankfully Phil was able to give us a lift home. An hour or so later, soothed by the sounds of Tool and The Prodigy we were back home in Edinburgh and ready for a little break from live gigs for a week or two. We have a couple of shows at the end of the month where we look forward to welcoming Michelle Blades to Scotland. We also have the video launch for “It’s Too Late Now” to look forward to as well as some rehearsals and interviews to complete – there really is no rest for the wicked.

Wednesday 6th August – The Central Bar, Gateshead
After a couple of eventful days off back in Scotland (being stung on the neck by a wasp and the shock of returning to work) it was time to get our selves together again for the next show… our first ever show in Gateshead.
We are really excited to have arranged a couple of dates with Jen Stevens & The Hiccups this summer and this is the first of those (not including The Corbridge Festival) on their home turf; the North East of England. We chose The Central Bar as it’s a lovely venue close to the Metro station and it has a good reputation for live music. The first act on this evening was Ben aka Felix Police; a one man band with his guitar and a bunch of pedals providing bass, beats, harmonies and other cool sounds. I’ve seen loads of acts like this over the years (KT Tunstall and Ed Sheeran do it well), and sometimes the sound can be limited / lacking but not tonight. I really liked his style especially the vocal harmonies and the fullness of his arrangements. Felix Police is a new act (this was the 3rd live outing) but I expect we’ll be hearing more from this fine young man in the future. The overall sound was like a mix between Tenacious D & Beck with a little Pixies thrown in for good measure. You can check out my favourite track from tonight’s set “The Ants & the Elephants” on SoundCloud.

Next up we played a 30 minutes set which included all 3 singles feature on the current LP (She Can’t Take It, Rue Crimée and the forthcoming release It’s Too Late Now) plus the two new unreleased tracks that have gone down so well with audiences this tour (Heartache and Rebels & Loners). We had no sound problems this evening in fact everything was perfect (thanks to Tony for sorting everything out for us) and no sooner had we started playing when the set was over. The audience in Gateshead was very polite and reserved in comparison to the crowds in London and Paris; very attentive and seemingly enjoying our material but as it was a sit-down show it was hard to tell just how “into it” they really were, however I got the feeling if they didn’t like us we’d soon have heard about it.

Again it was lovely to see some familiar faces in the audience tonight. Special thanks to Sarah & Marie for coming out to support original music (always a pleasure ladies).
The final act of the evening was Jen Stevens & The Hiccups; I had forgotten just how tight this band are live! Fabulously catchy tunes, lushous harmonies, fantastic musicianship, big smiles (Adam) and great hair (Jen) – they’ve got it all. I truly love Jen’s voice; like a cross between Stevie Nicks and Gwen Stefani, it’s rocky and soulful with lovely technical moments to catch out the vocal geeks like myself. We can’t wait to introduce them to a Scottish audience this weekend, I’m sure they’ll have a ball. They’ve got a really commercial sound and their songs wouldn’t sound out of place on Radio One: check out their track “The Sound” on SoundCloud.

Sorry to have missed the second half of their set tonight, but as the last train back to Edinburgh leaves Newcastle before 10pm, we headed off into the night to the sounds of the Hiccups and made our way back to bonnie Scotland once more.

Our next show is in Glasgow and again we’ve been working with House Cat Promotions to arrange this event. It’s a great line up – not to be missed!
I discovered Made Of Glass thanks to local Edinburgh musician Steve Heron (best recommendation of the year – thanks Mr H) and they have become a firm favourite on my current playlist. A new(ish) duo based in Edinburgh, Nikki & Duncan are about to set the scene alight! As soon as I heard them I knew they were the kind of band I’d love & set about arranging a show together pretty much straight away. I was super pleased when they agreed to play this show with us in Glasgow as I think they’ll make a great addition to the night. Also on the bill for this show is Chrissy Barnacle – new to me but I’m loving the material online and again can’t wait to see the live show. I hate it when I discover a new act I love, then have to wait ages for their live show to come to Scotland. This way I get to see two great new acts in one night (and we’re sharing the stage) – bonus.
Check out the links above for all bands, then come along to the live show… when it’s done it’s done!

Saturday 2nd August – Day Off, London
For our final day in London we went out early to make the most of our time; Celeb spotting in Soho without even trying over a coffee… Peter Capaldi (Thick of It / Dr Who), a picnic in Soho Square, an hour in Bar Italia for apple juice and a catch up with KMT (The Penny Black Remedy), free chocolate at Choccy Woccy Doo Dah (mmmm) and a chat with Ann in My Art Invest (an art share idea from Paris – investments coming soon) before heading over to Whitechapel for dinner.

We had made a reservation at Café Spice Namastae which is the restaurant run by Cyrus Todiwala (The Spice Boys / Celebrity Masterchef) and was possibly the best Indian food I’ve ever eaten. We started with the homemade chutneys and popadoms (all excellent, but the crab apple was the most unusual) before our ‘real’ starters arrived, then the Thalis for main, all washed down with mocktails and lassi – it was a perfect 2 hours of chatting, eating and being looked after by the fantastic staff. We left feeling very luck to have experienced such original, freshly prepared food in a fantastic atmosphere on our last night in such an exciting city.

Sunday 3rd August – Travel Day (London – Edinburgh)
We had a lazy Sunday morning with coffees on Pitshanger Lane before the ritual of packing, un-packing and re-packing on a travel day. Then it was off to Euston Station for our traditional meal at Ed’s diner before leaving London once more. We’ve had a great time in London staying with the super-cool Joe McG (one time flatmate of Robert Plant / designer of Black Sabbath LP covers / daughter who works at Vogue etc etc). We’ve had so much freedom whilst being looked after at the same time; BBQs in the garden and limitless tea and wee-fee… we love staying at Ealing Towers and hope we can show Joe a good time in Edinburgh if he makes it up for a show or two during the Fringe.
The train journey home was painless – no delays or problems with luggage and we arrived as expected into the madness that is The Fringe Festival.
Home Sweet Home

We still have a few shows to play & a video to launch this month, but it feels like the bulk of this tour is done and dusted.

Paris was amazing!
Thanks to; TT – for the great apartment / Pierre, Juliette, Laetitia and all the staff at La Dame De Canton / Teresa, Chakal & all the staff at AbracadaBar / Vincent and all the staff at Au Chat Noir / Dave, Lea, Ben, Leatitia & Tom for being cool / Victor at Midnight Special Records / Popper Must (Be) for a great set at Au Chat Noir / Aubry at Madoro Music Management for being the nicest person we didn’t meet (you really helped loads and we’ll be forever grateful to you for being so cool and professional) and most of all our new best friends Chloé, Ben, Ablass, Dan, Charly, Damien and Robert from AsOne – by far the best band in Paris!
Extra thanks to Chaval for the fantastic pics and to Sithara Ieng for the amazing video of our show at AbracadaBar from his “j’ai filmé pour vous” series.

London was fantastic!
Thanks to; Joe for the run of Ealing Towers / Martin / Andy Docherty and all the staff at The Village Inn for letting us hijack your acoustic show / all the “open mic’ers” we met in Putney & Ealing / Barry & Ray / Lisa & Bob / Phil M / Muir V / Tinderdust / Grand Bassam / all the staff at Power Lunches (especially their amazing sound engineer) / Andunemir for filming the show at Power Lunches and to Tom, Charles, David & Ben (dressmaker) for all their support.

Monday 21st July @ Day off in London
We headed out to the Greenwich Peninsula in the morning and took a trip on the Emirates Skyline – what an amazing view of the city. You get a little voice-over during the journey with the history of the area and some info about the new developments like The Crystal (Siemens eco building) and the forthcoming ‘Asian Dock’, which will welcome new businesses to the area for import & export trades.

We wandered round the area, which is also home to the O2 (ex Millennium Dome), which was a nice space, but without a concert or show on during the day it’s just filled with places to eat and drink. They have a great wall filled with old vinyl & CD sleeves, VHS & cassette tapes and old amps and TV’s where you can plug in headphones and listen to music.

In the afternoon we headed over to Shoreditch (one of our favourite areas in London) for some lunch and graffiti spotting. There is always loads of great street art in London & here is my favourite piece spotted on this trip so far.

After lunch we took a wander down to Hackney to check out the area and hand out some flyers before our show at the start of August at Power Lunches. It turns out Hackney is pretty cool too. We have friends that stay in the area but have never spent much time wandering the streets. We walked along Kingsland Road (which entertained me; the X-Factor boy band perhaps should have gone for a name that was more reflective of their style like Holland Park or Saville Row – but Kingsland Road now seems far too cool for them, even if this is where they stay). The area was pretty nice with cool cafés and shops.

We discovered a tattoo parlour, which had the most creepy dolls I’ve ever seen (I wish we had these for the ‘It’s Too Late Now’ video shoot last month).

In the evening we had a BBQ with our hosts. “A veggie at a BBQ” I hear you cry. Actually it was lovely! I had fresh corn-cobs, a lovely fresh salad & Joe’s famous Mediterranean Vegetable dish finished off with a large helping of banoffee pie.
Everyone else had burger and sausages from some fancy butchers, so everyone was well fed and loving the al fresco dining.

Tuesday 22nd July @ Travel to Paris
We’re super excited to be heading back to Paris and we both got up pretty early. After packing the bags (again) we walk into Ealing’s centre and grabbed some coffees whilst we discussed the sets for our upcoming shows.
There seems to have been a lot of last minute changes with this tour (in comparison to previous years), in particular, over the last few days we have been finalising the details for our show in Glasgow and thanks to the amazing attitude of Adam the drummer in Jen Stevens and the Hiccups and some help from The Academy of Music & Sound in Glasgow we should be ready to take the city by storm next month.

Ealing really is a lovely area of the city with loads of great places to eat & drink so we decided to grab a bite here before heading back to grab our bags & then off to Paris.

Arriving in Paris around after 9pm we went straight to our apartment (which is small but perfect for us) and then out to discover the area and eat more food. Italian for lunch in Ealing and Italian for supper in Paris

We are very excited to have arranged great shows in Paris with some fantastic bands. We have two shows with the amazing Trip-Hop/Rock band AsOne (our new favourite Paris band) and we will be joined by acoustic alt.folk acts Benares for our gig at AbracadaBar on the 25th and Popper Must (Be) at Au Chat Noir on the 26th.
For both these gigs I have been working with local band managers and promoters, which has made the process a lot easier. Not everyone I have been in contact with has been as capable, so I’d like to extend a special thank-you to Aubrey at (LABEL NAME) & Victor at Midnight Special Records for being so professional & helpful. You guys are amazing & we look forward to working with you more in the future.
We have already arranged some shows in Scotland for Midnight Special artist Michelle Blades & can’t wait to show them a good time in Edinburgh & Glasgow later in August.

There has also been an issue or two with one of our Glasgow shows, so there may well be a venue change in the offing. More details and dramas to follow…

The first gig of the Sacre Noir summer tour 2014 was as a duo at The Roxy 171 in Glasgow, “a fantastic wee intimate space for live music”. The bar upstairs is really lovely with super friendly staff and a cool menu, which included Buckfast Stew. We have been working with HouseCat Promotions when booking shows for this summer in Glasgow and the booker, Charly, did a fantastic job with the line up for this show. First up was the fantastically talented Josephine Sillars, a singer-songwriter based in Glasgow.
Josephine Sillars

Josephine Sillars


Josephine turned up with her Yamaha and an ironing board; instantly I knew I was going to love this girl. I’d watched her music video ‘Hurricanes’ online so I was expecting a pretty good show, but had under estimated just how good a pianist she is. Her set showed off her composition skills to the max and despite being really tired (she had just moved flat) she sang as well as she played. Being a literature student, her songs, as you’d perhaps expect reflected her ‘nerdy’ side, with lyrics inspired by Seamus Heaney, random meetings and werewolves. To be fair, Josephine has been working on the Glasgow based web series ‘Cops and Monsters’ and the werewolf song is from that project, but she is a self-declared nerd and her lyrics are well worth paying attention too. My favourite track from her set was ‘You (Are Not The Reason)’ which you can listen to on her tumblr page.

Next up was Megan Airlie with her ukulele, playing a mixture of original material and covers. She was joined for the last two songs in her set by a guitarist and percussionist, which was lovely and really provided a nice contrast to the rest of her set.

Her voice is mature far beyond her years and her cover choices alluded to her musical inspirations; 60’s surf pop (Beach Boys) and jazz (Nat King Cole). Her cover of L-O-V-E was really nice and my favourite track from her set.
Then we had an acoustic show from Model Jet Pilot, who are usually a very noisy 5-piece. We got treated to two boys (Ross & Gordon), two guitars, some catchy tunes and slick harmonies, I really think they should record an acoustic EP but will also make an effort to catch there full band show at some point, as I imagine it would be right up my street.

They played a mixture of old tracks from their ‘Welcome To The Future’ LP and a few new ones too. Their online presence seems to be pretty limited but you can check them out on bandcamp.

So finally it was time for Sacre Noir to take to the stage. We started the set with a new, unreleased track ‘Heartache’ and finished with the next single ‘It’s Too Late Now’ and filled in the rest with a mixture of tracks from both LPs and even debuted a live-loop version of ‘Print Message Here’ from the Demo Recordings III EP. We played 3 unreleased tracks in total and they all felt good. ‘Rebels & Loners’ is a classic Sacre Noir ballad and ‘Afrika’ (soon to be re-named) is a more up-beat track, so they both had their own vibe to bring to the ebb and flow of this set, which I felt worked really well.

Our sound engineer for the evening was Neil from KIC Studios, who did an amazing job and we can’t thank both him and Charly enough for helping us have a great first night of tour.

Our next gig is as a trio with Phil on guitar at the Corbridge Festival next weekend. Set in the beautiful grounds of Tynedale Rugby Club in Corbridge, along side the live music there will be range of attractions to entertain the whole family. Headliners this year are Big Country with Rozalla and Ball-zee also on the bill.
We will be performing for The Academy of Music & Sound (around 5pm) with some other fab acts taking to that stage from midday.
There is also and acoustic stage with great acts like Talk Like Tigers (who we’ll miss due to clashing stage times) and Chris Helme (Seahorses) so once we’ve wrapped up on our side of the field we’ll need to flip a coin to see which stage we’ll end up at for the rest of the night.

Pre-Tour shenanigans & excitement

Summer Tour 2014 - Postcard

Summer Tour 2014 – Postcard

As another summer approaches, Sacre Noir returned to the live circuit with a pre-tour show at Edinburgh’s Citrus Club on June 21st. The gig was set up as a birthday celebration, and local acts (favoured by the birthday girl) turned out in force to show some love. Also on the bill was one of my favourite local riot grrrl acts, The Fnords. I have long been a fan of their surf-punk styling’s but it’s been a really long time since I’ve seen them live and their set was, as expected, fierce. A half-hour set peppered with old and new tracks and full of energy. Other acts on the night included birthday girl Pat’s bands P.A.L, Third Bass (whom she didn’t get to play with on the night due to breast feeding responsibilities) and the Incendiary Bats. I hadn’t seen any of these bands before and was super impressed with the line up. P.A.L have a great track called ‘Alex’ – definitely my favourite of theirs from the night and there were some mighty fine guitar and drum skills on show during the Incendiary Bats set (the bass skills on show during this event were of course evident in all bands except Sacre Noir).
We played as a trio & tried out a new original track, currently called ‘Rebels & Loners’ and also our new cover track ‘Open Up’ by Leftfield. The crowd were great! They were really responsive & reacted well to the new additions in our set. It seems like ages since we’ve played live together and it was a great warm up for this summer’s tour.

Next up was a super Sunday practice session at Bainbridge Music on Iona Street. We booked in for a double session; 1st up a trio rehearsal for the shows on July 12th at Corbridge Festival & 17th at Bannerman’s Bar, Edinburgh, then a duo rehearsal for the first night of the tour at The Roxy 171, Glasgow. 6 hours of rehearsal with a break for lunch at Café Casablanca on Leith Walk and one broken pedal (Phil’s Digitech 2nd edition Whammy – oh no) and I think we’re about ready hit the road.

We’ve made some changes to the set up and are planning on unveiling a few new songs this summer, so I can’t wait to kick things of on Thursday with the first of two House Cat Promotions shows we have this summer. HCP are a Glasgow based promotions machine that have put together a great line up for us to begin our summer in style.

Before this however I had a small business trip to Birmingham, where I saw this great advert at the Adidas store:

Then Alexis & I went to see the marvellous Beth Orton at the O2 Academy in Glasgow. Last year we saw Amanda Palmer play in Edinburgh before we went off on tour & it provided us with an extra kick of inspiration and this year seeing Beth was not dissimilar. She has decided to play just 3 shows in the UK to promote the re-issue of Central Reservation. Both Alexis & I performed tracks from this LP as part of our final year Degree shows, so it was an amazing experience to watch her perform them live. Her band was amazing; Ted Barnes (guitar), Ali Friend (bass), Daisy Palmer (drums), Sam Amidon (violin – Beth’s hubby) and an amazing keyboard player whose name escapes me, but his and his fellow band mates playing was exceptional.

I really liked Daisy’s backing vocals and the general calmness that they exuded on stage was stunning. Track of the night, although I enjoyed every minute of their set, was Devil Song. This was that track I included in my degree show and listening to it performed live, really brought back memories of my college days and why I wanted to be a performer back then. On reflection I’m sure my ideals haven’t changed all that much.
