I’ve made up 18 copies of The Luminous Ground with paste-on wrap-around risograph print artwork to sell at these shows… Vinyl is from sleeveless copies of the original print run.
I’m really happy to be playing at the second event in a new series of small-scale shows organised by the great Glasgow operatives CRY PARROT.

Glasgow – Secret West End Location
Capacity for each event is very limited but all attempts are made to make the shows as inclusive and welcoming as possible. Events are open to people of all ages, there are no guestlists and no costs either, meaning all ticket sales are passed directly to the artists. The venue location will be revealed to ticket holders 48 hours prior to the event. Elitism and snobbery discouraged, positive vibes thoroughly encouraged...
