Its difficult to imagine any KC fan not loving Sure & Steadfast.  Maybe some folk just not aware of it yet?
If any East Midlands fans want it I think I could pick them up a copy later this month- save on postage?

I thought we'd all bought this during our recent weekend in Anstruther but.........if you can fit an extra AETC box set in the Johnsonmobile (assuming they are available) I'd be very grateful. I still have your 'personalised' Seamus Tour EP by the way!

My two most embarrassing moments took place whilst I was in the BBs.

I once qualified to represent 1st Tulliallan at the summer West Fife Under-11 BB Athletic Finals (or whatever it was called) in the long jump. Qualifying took place in the BB hall in Kincardine, with the floor covered in matting and quilts, Nae bother.

However, the finals themselves took place at Pitreavie athletics stadium in Dunfermline. Hundreds of people were watching. In 3 attempts, I didn't even reach the sand-pit...

You'll have to buy me several pints before you get the other story out of me!

Hello.

Just wanted to say how much I'm loving Sure and Steadfast. I was lucky enough to be in the east neuk last month so visited the fisheries museum to pick it up. Favourite tracks are Third Party, Ounces and Carry On Dancing. Highly recommended!

Thanks KC (and HMSG)

Just wanted to say how much myself & the other half are enjoying this record. Was up visiting my folks in the East Neuk a few weeks ago, had a peek on this site for the first time in a while and found out about S&S.

Buying an album from behind the counter at the Fisheries Museum was quite strange but what a CD! Def one of KC's finest, lovely contributions from HMS G and couldn't recommend it enough. And all for a good cause  :D

Will hopefully make it up for an event next year in the newly improved hall in Anstruther / Crail / whatever else pops up!

The only person I've come across is Tom McCrae.  So far I have bought four of his albums (on recommendation of another Hubber) and just ordered a fifth.  Every single one is superb in my humble opinion.

Neil Young? True there were a few stinkers along the way but he still seems to churn out about a record a year, mostly good stuff. Used to think Ryan Adams fitted into that as well but then he went and got married / sober / happy.

LOVE getting into someone with a ton of records cause you can go a bit mental and listen to nothing else for ages.

Bob Dylan and Elvis Presley were my first two musical loves but they both have plenty of turds in their discography.

I think Jeff Lewis is pretty consistently amazing. There might be a couple of duff tracks on each album but each album has at least 2/3 songs that are mind-blowingly good.

Yeah, he's quite an acquired one. I think I came across him at just the right time in my (quite self-pitying) adolescence. Like I completely understand why people hate Daniel Johnston. Different strokes for different anti-folks, eh?

Speaking of Daniel Johnston, did you hear JY and Adrian Crowley are releasing a covers album? That's angsty music to my ears  :D

From what i can tell it's the same but it's been remastered. This is the blurb from Chemikal Underground:

"My Yoke Is Heavy: The Songs of Daniel Johnston"

We're delighted to announce that we'll be releasing 'My Yoke Is Heavy: The Songs of Daniel Johnston' featuring James Yorkston and Adrian Crowley: A homage to the cult American song-writer, the album finds James and Adrian interpreting a selection of Daniel Johnston's beguiling catalogue and will be available from December 6th.

With Johnston's material sitting snugly between merriment and melancholy, who better to have a run at it than our very own Galway balladeer Adrian Crowley and Fife's inestimably lyrical troubadour, James Yorkston?

Limited to 500 vinyl and 500 CDs, 'My Yoke Is Heavy' will be released on Dec 6th and features the following tracklist:

Side A
1. True Love Will Find You In The End
2. My Yoke Is Heavy
3. Held The Hand
4. Like A Monkey In A Zoo

Side B
1. The Sun Shines Down On Me
2. Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Your Grievances
3. Walking The Cow
4. Some Things Last A Long Time

I agree with Dubster about Tom McCrae (I was that hubber) and I'm a massive Springsteen fan, although i wouldnt say I love absolutely everything he's done its close enough.
No one beats KC for outstanding song writing though - in my opinion anyway.
Oh and I would add Withered Hand to the list as well.  I know he hasn't got a massive back catalogue but I have no doubt all of his future albums will be pretty amazing.

Yeah I think for this one it's still these instructions and not the webshop:
Donations of 15 or more (plus 1.50 p&p) to the SFM boat club made through us will get you a copy.
