The Red Well
« on: Fri, Jul 28, 2017, 23:34 PM »
I listened to that album tonight, for the first time in an age, and i really enjoyed it. I had in my head that it was all about Skerryvore, but that was underestimating it. Not that it's a bad thing to have one killer song on an album, i'm happy enough to get that, i don't expect every album i buy to be Blue or RCR or VU. In fact most of the albums on the shelves are one trackers. Anyway, The Red Well isn't. It's more than a one tracker.

Always one of my favourite sleeves too.

Never did see them live though.

Hello Jim.

Best red well song isn't on the album but on the sampler that preempted its release.

Fact.  I wonder if Jim ever completed his album of songs about lighthouses of Scotland.

water, eventually....

i always had a soft spot for the little wonkey god rest ye merry gentlemen

remember when they started a homegame rumour about a certain kt playing at noon sunday in the erskine hall only for the mainly hungover, anticipatory but unprepared audience to be blasted by a full on furious red wellian assault.  cleared the majority of the bearded hall in minutes.  quite brilliant.

I walked past the Red Well today.

It's a grand walk.

You need to visit it on the autumnal equinox to see it at it's best.

I've got a picture from it as my Twitter background.

Not quite the clearance rate of Jon Hopkins' late night full-on techno set at the Town Hall when everyone was expecting some ambient loveliness, nor the aural assault that was RanTan in the Fisheries Museum, but that was a great HG moment.

Great hg clearances #3.  That sunshine Manc baggy band that took two hours to Set up their piano.  Anyone who hung around left midway through the first track

Hi Jim.

I still see Jim on Instagram. He left Facebook. I miss him.
