The Twilight Sad
The Twilight Sad
Forming in 2003, the band's early shows saw them creating half-hour pieces of music with tape loops and toy instruments alongside bass, guitar and drums. These sonic adventures gradually evolved into the more traditional songwriting, a more overt inclination towards emotive, eloquent song that we see from The Twilight Sad now.

The band are as influenced by their immediate geography ('the sticks just outside Glasgow'),as they are any particular musical reference points. Debut album 'Fourteen Autumns and Fifteen Winters' (recorded in Glasgow, and mixed and produced by the band and Peter Katis (Interpol, Mercury Rev, Mice Parade) in Connecticut) is liable to evoke a familiar indie canon, from white-noise era Creation Records, to fellow Scots Arab Strap or Mogwai, but The Twilight Sad are unmistakably their own band.

Deceptively simple songs are rendered transcendent. Bleached, overdriven guitars consistently ride a line between ambient and coruscating, working in tandem with an articulate, tumultuous rhythm section, portraying an awestruck, ragged sentimentality. Lyrically suggestive, 'Fourteen Autumns…' verges on the anthemic or celebrative, but is firmly rooted in the familiar, unsaid hurt behind day to day events. While the band's recorded sound is intricately layered, live, they are an intense experience.

After spending much of 2007 touring - including dates with Smashing Pumpkins, Idlewild, Micah P Hinson and Snow Patrol – 2008 saw the release of mini-album, 'Here, It Never Snowed. Afterwards It Did', reworkings of songs from 'Fourteen Autumns…'. This record shows not only a band full of ideas, embracing the opportunity to recontextualise and create fresh material, but also stands to re-focus the listener's attention on the strength of the songs themselves.

The Twilight Sad toured Europe in 2008 with Mogwai, and tour EP (of new songs, live material, covers and unreleased material), '(The Twilight Sad) Killed My Parents and Hit The Road' will be available from selected indie stores in 2009. The band are currently working on new material for their upcoming album.

Errors
Errors is a 4 piece band from Glasgow, Scotland. Originally formed in 2004 by Simon Ward, Stephen Livingstone and Greg Paterson on the back of a 3 track demo recorded in Simon's bedroom the band quickly set about making a name for themselves in their hometown with their unique take on dance music. The band were soon taken under the wing of Mogwai who signed them to their Rock Action label alongside the likes of Part Chimp and James Orr Complex.
To date they have released a series of 7" singles, EPs and their debut album "It's Not Something But It Is Like Whatever" through Rock Action and these releases have brought them to the attention of the mainstream media with support and acclaim for the band coming across the board from MTV, DJ's like Zane Lowe, John Kennedy and Vic Galloway along with sessions at Maida Vale for Mary Anne Hobbs, Rob Da Bank and Huw Stephens, magazines such as NME, Dazed and Confused and Rock Sound as well as tours and live dates with

bands as varied as Underworld, Franz Ferdinand, Explosions In The Sky, Gary Numan and Mogwai.

2009 marked the recording of Errors' sophomore release; "Come Down With Me". Recorded and produced by the band in their customised studio "The Freezer" based in Glasgow's East End. The record builds on the merged sound of electronic and analogue that has become Errors signature. Angular, spiraling guitars, underpinned by truly mesmerising beats combined with euphoric synths and pop hooks.

"Come Down With Me" was released to critical acclaim in 2010 described in a 4 star review in Q as "a thrilling invitation" while NME hailed them as "one of the most interesting bands in the country". The band are about to release a remix album of their sophmore release entitled "Celebrity Come Down With Me" featuring contributions from the likes of The Field, Gold Panda, Mogwai and Wax Stag as well as embarking on a co-headline UK tour with fellow Scots The Twilight Sad
