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.
What better way to launch a CD than at the very wonderful Record Collector shop at Broomhill? We will be squeezing in amongst Barry’s collection to play a short set on Friday, May 22nd at 12 noon.
The CD will be on sale but if you cannot get along, check the EE shop out.
The official launch for Andy Weaver’s Sometime Man will be
Friday 27 February 2015 @ Yellow Arch (30-36 Burton St, Neepsend, Sheffield S3 8BX)

Lost Garden have lined up a new venue to play; Eten, a cafe / bistro / tearoom next door to Sheffield Cathedral. We dropped in for some hot choccy after a gig at the Cathedral last year and had a guided tour of the performance area upstairs. They haven’t really ventured into the “experimental” musical field, so we’re hoping it will be a success and help establish a superb City-centre venue.
Alongside us will be Inclusion Principle, featuring Martin Archer – laptop, woodwinds, Hervé Perez – laptop, woodwinds, Peter Fairclough – drums and percussion, and afterwards, we hope, a chance to play together – always an exctiing prospect!
