Music and Meandering

Music and Meandering by yours truly, Heather-Davina.

I live, laugh and love in London, but I'm a Glasgow girl at heart.

I ramble a lot about music, literature, events and living life in general.

Well behaved women rarely make history.

Frabbity Rabbity have new tracks! And promise of a new album! One, two, three… “Yeaaaaaaaah”. The first time I heared it was when they performed live on Vic Galloway’s show at the Fringe a couple of weeks ago and sounded beautifully and tentatively fresh, showing growth and development like in The Winter of Mixed Drinks, but reclaiming some of the delicate and raw sound from Midnight Organ Fight.

January 2013 is the rumoured release date. If someone could start a rumour it will be released in October 2012- and then for that to happen- my impatient nature would really appreciate it.

A couple of wee snaps from Wickerman 2012. 

Gerry Loves Records New Release


The wonderful and funny Gerry Love Record boys are releasing yet another wonderful limited edition 7” Split Single this time with Adam Stamford (Y’all is Fantasy Island) and Rick Redbeard (The Phantom Band). They are also celebrating with a few wee gigs in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen. Buy the vinyl and go to the gig. It will be good and it looks very beautiful….the vinyl that is. 

I’ve left my record player at my parents’ house in Glasgow post-move to Edinburgh. This is a VERY good reason to sit on a train with a record player on my knee

Live SAY award updates from Pop Cop

Well if we weren’t excited enough for the SAY awards tonight- Pop Cop’s rounded up some amigos to give a continuous update on what’s going on.

Dress? Check. Tickets? Check. Hot date? Check. Phone so I can keep updated with what’s going on… even when I’m in the same room? Check.

An interview with The Xcerts

What an enjoyable little read over lunch.

New Album = Yeaaaaaaaah

Axl being a cunt= Booooooooo

I’m too full of food to be any more articulate right now. Just read the damn interview.

Some lovely new music for a rather grey Tuesday night in Edinburgh. 

Graeme, Pete, Fergus and Gillian, collectively The State broadcasters, are a Glaswegian band, who are bringing out brilliant music through Olive Grove Records.

Have a listen.

Go North 2012- Thursday night

Some photos from the train ride from Edinburgh to Inverness, and of course, Thursday night at Go North. Teklo raving it up in Hootannanys, Olympic Swimmers beautiful and completely rammed gig in Madhatters, Lady North following up, making some funky and damn ear satisfying noises, French Wives perfect harmonies in Ironworks, then back to Madhatters to see DARC, who as well as providing a smashing performance to close Detour’s showcase, gave away party bags with their band info on party invitations as well as refresher bars. Boys, you clearly know the way to a girl’s heart.

Detour Episode 1

A couple of shots from the filming of Miaoux Miaoux and Prof at the arcade, as well as some photos from the live gig in Stereo starring Alarm Bells and United Fruit.
