Title: king creosote’s East Neuk mis’advent’ures 2018
Post by: AETC on Mon, Oct 08, 2018, 21:09 PM
king creosote returns to the East Neuk Hotel, Crail, this December, starting out solo and ramping it up as the big day nears ...

Lighting the 1st candle, Sunday 2nd SOLD OUT

kc will be doing his best to promote the Domino vinyl reissues of ‘kenny & beth’s musakal boat rides’ and ‘rocket DIY’ ahead of their release date 07/12/18.

Lighting the 2nd candle, Sunday 9th SOLD OUT

Mairearad Green will be skiving off from her important piping rehearsals in Glasgow to join kc in Crail for a set of BuoyGull classics.

Lighting the 3rd candle, Sunday 16th SOLD OUT

Captain Geeko and Des Lawson will be taking a well deserved break from the running of their rapidly growing I.T. company “SH” to bring a smattering of djembe and keys to this, the penultimenis.

Lighting the 4th candle, Sunday 23rd SOLD OUT

kc & the ''SH'' I.T. Duo will now be joined by the Mull(ed) Trio for one helluva party!

All gigs start at 3 with a break for tea. Accompanied under 18s can pay slightly less on the door, under 12s can pay a lot less, and quiet under 6s can pay nothing at all.

A BBC classic yes, but it's more likely a John Noakes reference than The Two Ronnies. To commemorate Blue Peter's 60th Anniversary, it's KC's musical advent crown. Get down, Shep!

Does anyone know roughly how long the gigs are likely to last? I'm hoping to come to the 1st one, from Edinburgh, and have complicated childcare type arrangements to sort out.

This makes me very happy. They were the first KC albums that I heard.

Hot News (at least it was last week!)

Also playing at the Neuk on 7th December, by popular demand, we present the michty Withered Hand and all his evil works!  Phone the bar for tickets.   Paul has organised it and I believe it's £10 in advance or £12 on the door.    Quite a weekend in store.

This bit. Any news on these reissues? This is the first and only reference I can find and it would be great to get these without spending stupid Discogs money.

There are very few tickets left for candle 1, candles 3 & 4 are both sold out.
When the webshop closes this week there ought to be candle 2 tickets available to buy from the East Neuk Hotel.

Depending on how busy the room looks on the night (band guests, teenagers-in-tow, and VIPs such as Scarlett J etc. will all be taking up a bit of space) there may not be the option to pay on the door.

Thanks y’all, and I look forward to seeing yiz in December.

There are very few tickets left for candles 1,3 and 4. In fact, there might only be 1 ticket left for candle 4 on Dec.23rd.

Depending on how busy the room looks on the night - band guests, teenagers-in-tow, VIPs such as Scarlett J etc. will all take up a bit of space - there may not be the option to pay on the door.

I take that back, it just the way I read things, KC doesn't say anything about candle two because there are still tickets left for it, indeed I have just purchased another from the trading post. Gavin is going to make it to one of them now.

Update:- only 3 tickets left for Candle 1, and the shop is due to close late on Nov 9th.

The East Neuk Hotel already has a reserve list meaning we’re 3 tickets away from selling out the December run.

REALLY hoping this will be done in the same style as the World Tour Of Fife a few years back - the song-by-song run through of Rocket DIY at the Fisher & Donaldson cafe in Cupar is one of my favouritest-ever gigs. Top 100, for sure.

Both Kenny & Beth’s and Rocket DIY will be available to buy, on vinyl, at Candle 1 (and for the next decade, no doubt).

I can’t beat Monorail on price, alas, but if it’s any consolation I bought 60 of each just to be able to own a copy of “K&B’s” on vinyl for myself. Them’s the perks  ::)

Candle 1 was a delight.

Act 1 - Kenny & Beth's Musical Boat Ride stretched out over 2 hours, stories behind the songs; tales of chaffuering JY to Wales for £35 each way; risks of being sued by George Clinton amongst others. A mix of guitar and squeezebox renditions, both in the case of Missionary; we even got a blindfold rendition or Harper's Dough.

Act 2 - Rocket DIY. A complete run through of, for me, amongst the top 2 or 3 KC releases. I'd last seen KC do this at Peacock Art Centre in Aberdeen as part of the launch of a Forest of Black installation in around 2011ish and it's lost none of it's lustre down the years. Again a few tales to fill out the back story to some of the songs; guitar and squeezebox version of Circle My Demise, finished off by the stone cold classic that is Saffy Nool.

Great to see the ENH packed out and some faces not seen for a while in those parts, Funky Nomad, Knitnurse, Rosti, Captain Fourhorns amongst the usual crew.

I also did some research today and it's seems the French equivalent of Jap's Eye is 'un trou de pine' which translates as 'pine hole'

Thanks Czefski.  So sorry I had to miss it but it sounds like a magical night.  Candle Two promises to be equally as wonderful judging by the Bhoy Gull session on Radio Scotland's Travelling Folk.

Yes totally agree with Paul it was a great day. Kenny took delight in showing and letting us hear some singles which were the original releases of JY, Pip Dylan and KC giving some background to how the LP came about.  There was a drawing of JY face on one of sleeves which was life size and Kenny did some neat impressions using it as a mask although,  I thought it looked more like Vincent Van Gogh. We were also treated to another classic masterclass in guitar chords from Kenny and many of his hilarious stories. The ceremonial candle was lit and then blown out so that it would be able to be lit each week, carefully judged by Kenny. The two new LPs were on sale at the end including some Loose Tea ones.   ENH was well organised and even offered a special menu when first half ended at 5pm as their evening menu doesn't start until 6pm you could have beef or veg chilli for £7.50 and it was very nice indeed.

Looking forward to candle two

Aye was great to get up to the Neuk after quite a while. Didn't catch the first half but got Rocket D.I.Y in. One of my favourites for sure.

And if that wasn't good enough, Kenny through in a belter of an anecdote involving birthdays, jackets and Turtley mishaps. Still laughing.

Cheers and great to chat with a few old faces!

I have two tickets for Candle 2 this afternoon and am disappointed not to be able to go.

If anybody would like them I can send a photo. They're numberered so shouldn't be a problem at the ENH.
