of Secret Songs 7", August 2003
By Jonathon Wilson, in Out of Town/The Brag,
from The List magazine. John's defining moments
of National park in the Glasgow University Guardian
by The List music editor Hannah McGill. A review
of the 5th national park gig. The Art School was real busy that
night and the crowd a-rowdy, however it was really only about three
people who had been in the bar soundcheck thru to gig that were
trying to compete with our 3x100 watts. We had no hand in this review.
by David Keenan. Pomes unanchored, shapes in the
ether, soul-spoken and true, a Loren Mazzacane guide told through
use of flashback sequences. Originally published in Sparky fanzine.
Bulletin feature on the Astral Plane Festival.
Acid Mothers Temple and the Melting Paraiso UFO,
Richard Youngs, National Park, 36 Snowfall and The Pastels. One
hour soundcheck for five bands, David and myself (John) thinkin'
we were remaking the Woodstock documentary... one hour to go and
still no PA. Compare this feature with David's
press release for the show and Mark Waddell's freaked beat style
makes sense. Still, we wouldn't have wanted it any other way.
