22 Dec Video Archive: Sky Larkin – Musical Postcard
This video from my work archive is the Musical Postcard featuring Sky Larkin – the first of the series and the demo that helped those at Clash run with the idea. I love this band as a collective and individuals. Warm, open, approachable and all round good people. There’s no interview in this postcard, that was the suggested add-on for future pieces to give the magazine value. Herein is just two great songs played acoustically for (i think) one of the first times – I’m sure I’ll be corrected if wrong – in the Strongroom bar. Enjoy this loads – I do!
About the musical postcards series
The Musical Postcards series was born from the idea of wanting to do a very stripped back performance podcast; bands performing acoustically in a public-ish space, no microphones for pro-audio production, no multi-takes for multiple angles, just a performance as nature intended you to hear it.
I pitched it to Mark – my collaborator in crime up in Glasgow – and made a demo with the forever incredible Sky Larkin. Clash joined in and gladly gave the publishing platform. It’s been a few years since these all went up and presuming them lost somewhere in the archives on other sites, I’m now bringing them to the fore and placing them on my site for the first time. There are some gems to come.
