An interesting show at the Voodoo Rooms, Saturday 3rd March from 8pm. Edinburgh. Billed as ‘The Family Gathering’ it headlines Edinburgh’s cult, 80’s, post-punk, psychedelic popsters ‘The Shattered Family’ re-united for an historic one-off performance. Drummer, Graham Bonnar, (Brian Jonestown Massacre/Swervedriver), comes home to join Lightnin’ Conductor Mole (aka ‘The Last Dance Kid’), Mik Travis, Dr. Kimberley Sands and Third Bass for an evening of music, variety and togetherness. With their reputation for live spectacle it promises to be a stimulating event for young and less young alike.
Guests include Phil Zimmerman (London), off-beat bluesician Homesick Aldo (Overseas) and singer-songwriter Nev Hawkins (Liverpool). Tickets £5 on the door.
Mick Travis appears courtesy of ‘Lovedust’, a 3 year collaborative music project featuring Rick Maymi (Brian Jonestown Massacre/Wild Swans/Steve Kilby) which includes some modern re-workings of Shattered Family songs amongst new compositions and covers a broad sweep of musical styles and influences. Debut album and live shows to be announced.
