James Yorkston is about to head off on the road in an uncompromising power trio, accompanied by the formidable talents of Jon Thorne and Suhail Yusuf Khan. Luckily, I got to do the poster, which you can see above!
I was quite into this swan lady version, but after some thought it was decided that since there was no certainty of any swan ladies, much less haunted brackish pools, at any of the tour dates (Cambo perhaps excepted), a more literal poster design might be required. This led to the second design, below.
James was quite keen to add some flames at this stage, an opportunity which I politely declined. Not one to have his vision stifled quite so easily, he then passed the design to a nice chap called Struan at the Cambo estate, who made this gnarly version for their Hallowe'en installment this week.
If you're lucky enough to have heard the recent collaborative "Dewar's Experimental Batch Number 26" album (which this tour is an extension of), then you'll know that these shows promise to be a real treat. And support on all dates from Lisa O'Neill too. Maybe see some folk at the Edinburgh show this Friday (featuring added Cairn String Quartet).
