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.
Barry asked for a poster for the Lost Garden appearance at his famous Record Collector shop (see below), our sleeve designer has obliged.
We have at last got a confirmed shipping date for the LOST GARDEN CD, and expect to get our stock during the week commencing April 20th. Apologies for the time-lag. Our aim is to get pre-order copies out that week all being well. In case you missed it, pre-order stock will be signed by the two band members. Read more about the CD here.
The first two titles of our relaunch can now be pre-ordered. CHICKENLEGS WEAVER is due to ship at the end of February. LOST GARDEN’S debut CD will ship in March. Both titles are packaged in exclusive art six panel digipak covers for a limited time. They are also priced at a discount for a while. As an added bonus, ALL orders for LOST GARDEN will be signed by the two musicians for a limited period. You can pre-order the CDs from our approved mail order outlet now. In store release dates will be announced shortly.
T-shirts for the artists will also be available soon, available to wear in the North East now or the rest of the UK in the summer!
