Show with string section!

May6 Gig TO CHECKWe’ve wanted to do this for as long as I can remember: a show with a lovely, big sweeping string section. Ho, ho! So here we go.

Ladies and Gentlemen, on Friday 6th May we will be proud to present to you a full band performance of songs from “Come to the Fabulon”, a sneaky peek or two at never-before-seen songs from the next album and maybe even one or two rare and exotic cover versions, all played with a special invitational select string section assembled by the formidable Mr Pete Harvey, featuring guest musicians from Glasgow, Edinburgh, Perth and The People’s Republic of Yorkshire. There may well be whistles and bells too. And special guest stars! So special, so secret, we don’t even know who they are yet.
Roll up folks, A New International for one night only in Glasgow’s beautiful St Luke’s venue. All welcome, tell your friends, hell, tell your enemies too.
We may only get one chance at this before the bailiffs break down the door. So let’s get on with the show.

Any joy?

Ladies and Gentlemen, we would like to ask for your help.
We’re making our next video and are seeking submissions of short film clips (10 seconds or so) on the theme of joy, happiness, fun, good times, etc. Taking inspiration from the final scene in Cinema Paradiso, we’re going to make a montage. A montage of joy. Oh aye. It can be anything you like and any quality you like, from phones, home movies to professional cameras.

Please send files of 25MB or less to anewinternationaljoy@gmail.com
Files bigger than 25MB can be sent to this address throughwetransfer.com
Landscape format would be preferable please to fit the wide screen.
Your help would be much appreciated.

Go on, enjoy yersels.x

Clear spells in Govan, with scattered showers

Hullo Folks, we’re playing an acoustic session tonight on Sunny Govan Radio between 6-7 on the New Music City Radio show with Jim McMillan. In the interests of trading standards it’s only fair to say that it won’t be all sunshine in Govan tonight. Scattered showers are forecast, with occasional clear spells. It’s better than dreich. -http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/g51 You can listen… Read more →
