The Reindeer Section:
less a band and more a 'project' - but less a collection
of musicians and more a supergroup. Mainman is Snow Patrol's
Gary Lightbody who told Jockrock
The 14-track Reindeer Section album
entitled "y'all get scared now ya hear!" is out on
August 6, on Bright Star Recordings. The band's live debut is
at T in the Park in Kinross on the 8th July. Astrid, John
from Mogwai, Arab Strap's Aidan Moffat and hopefully Richard
Colburn and Mick Cooke from Belle and Sebastian will be part
of the live band, plus anyone else who is in the vicinity at
the time. A secret gig in Belfast around this time is also planned
- more details to follow.
Hear "Nightfall" featuring Arab Strap's Aidan Moffat on vocals.
Check back here in a week to hear another exclusive track from the album.
Other info available at BrightStar Recordings' website.
