Guillemots / November 2008 UK Tour

By on Thursday, 18th September 2008 at 4:28 pm

Those quirky lot, The Guillemots, have announced a November UK tour of some more bizarre venues than many bands have played this year.

Lead singer, Fyfe Dangerfield commented on their press release “We want to get to places that are off the usual touring circuit that’s reeled out, and really mix around the type of venues we’re at each night. It makes it more fun for us and audiences too. And the set will be different as well. We’ll definitely be trying out something we’ve never played live before.”

Accompanying Guillemots on the tour will be film events company Future Shorts – with whom the band collaborated for their re-scoring of the David Lynch classic Eraserhead at this year’s Latitude Festival. Each show on the November tour will be preceded by a selection of short films re-scored live by the band.

Not sure if you want to catch them live, or need a bit of persuading to splash out on a ticket? Then why not catch their live show they did at Amsterdam’s Paradiso in June this year? It’s available now over on Fabchannel

Tickets are on sale now, from the usual sources, and also from Sandbag.

Connect Festival / Now with Guillemots / Ladytron and friends

By on Thursday, 19th June 2008 at 12:26 pm

Hydro Connect Festival LogoI promised myself I wouldn’t mention the festivals this summer, with the vast majority of them having shockingly awful lineups (yes, Reading / Leeds / Wireless / Glastonbury, I’m looking at you). However one festival has consistently attracted my attention: Connect.

I’ve already mentioned it before, but the new bands they’ve added to the lineup this week means I have to mention it again: it’s like my dream festival lineup.

Not only do they already have Kasabian, Manic Street Preachers, Franz Ferdinand, Sigur Ros, Bloc Party, Gossip and friends, they now have the amazing Ladytron, Guillemots and NME favourites Glasvegas. Quite honestly, I’d give anything to see this lineup, as it looks pretty darned good compared to the rest of the festivals. All they need to do is add Delays and The National, and I’ll be up there in a flash.

If I were you, come payday I’d get a weekend ticket, which are priced £120 and weekend tickets with camping are £140. To buy, log onto their website or call Ticketmaster on 08444 999 990
