West Street Live

Lost Garden West Street Live June 2015 Danse Society

Illuminated by a couple of 60 watt bulbs it wasn’t easy to snap Lost Garden when they played at West Street Live in Sheffield on June 26th.  The venue tries to put on live music most evenings which is great, but having booked Danse Society to play, and dragging them all the way from Liverpool, you might have thought it was worth telling someone about the event!  Not even a hand scribbled poster on the window.  Anyhow, Lost Garden were invited to open the proceedings, and it was interesting to hear them incorporating some drum patterns and other more aggressive elements into the sound, perhaps mindful of the hard core goths who did turn up for the show.  Danse Society?  They were astonishingly loud (and I speak as someone who saw Deep Purple when they were still officially the loudest rock band in the world!) which rather took the shine off it for us, although you have to say they seemed to have it all together.

Waiting game

The Lost Garden CD album has arrived, and the limited edition fold out digipak looks good. The band signed a box of copies for all the pre-orders (and a few extra if you are quick). Any pre-orders will ship on the 24th. Lost Garden are planning some local shows in unusual venues both to promote the release and support indie shops. Dates will be published shortly.
