LONE PIGEON is returning in a big way on the 11th of April 2011 with the release of ‘Time Capsule’, a massive 7 album box set which contains pretty much everything the man has ever made. To celebrate the release of this box set, we are pleased to announce a very special show at Bush Hall.
LONE PIGEON cuts an enigmatic figure, whilst his musical eccentricities funnily enough refuse to allow his style to be pigeonholed. Reviews name check familiar artists but in every essence they are wholly Pigeon. Beguiling, fragile and bereft of ego, vanity or spin Lone Pigeon crouches almost alone in a popular culture in which he has no interest and little understanding. Outside of his hometown the LP live is a very rare bird, but in full flight there really is nothing more spellbinding as anyone lucky to have witnessed can attest. An artist, poet, musician, traveler and believer, the LP is a complicated character but with his music he creates sublime melodies that can elicit the simplest emotions; tunes that will make you smile with joy or alternately weep in shared sorrow. You would have to be wooden not to care.
THE PICTISH TRAIL is the nom de plume of 28-yr-old singer-songwriter Johnny Lynch, who – alongside Kenny Anderson (aka King Creosote) – runs micro-indie DIY-folk collective Fence Records, in a remote fishing village in Fife, Scotland. His music is a sonorous mixture of acoustic-driven balladry and lo-fi synthesised pop, that has been described as “a post-summer trove of sun-warped electro, anamorphic folk” (Plan B Magazine).
