Broken Records stay glued to their homeland for clutch of December 2011 shows in Scotland
For five years now, Edinburgh's nu-folk 'n' rock outfit Broken Records, have earned themselves a terrific reputation for lively and boisterous concerts, not least North of the Border where they regularly sold out their early shows at a considerable rate of knots. Reasonable ticket-prices and cosy venues certainly helped, but ultimately it's all about the stirring music that they can produce.
Until 2009, the band were relatively unheard of but, after inking a deal with 4AD in London, doors have opened and albums have sold, with a net finally cast over a wider audience and a future of media coverage thus assured. The two albums so far, "Until The earth Begins To Part" and last year's "Let Me Come Home" haven't given Lady Gaga any cause to panic, sales-wise, but their audience remains robust and loyal and their music fits snugly into Arcade Fire/ Waterboys territory.
The reverse feeling from the band must be mutual - Broken Records are set to perform a handful of shows in Scotland in the run-up to Christmas. The first show is in Edinburgh on 6th December, followed by Glasgow (7th), Dundee (8th), Dunfermline (9th) and finally Aberdeen (11th) and we have tickets available, priced from £5 to £10 - still keeping those prices within reach of the recession-gripped times and well worth every penny, if previous live shows are anything to go by.
Meanwhile, check out the official live performance recorded for the 4AD sessions late last year by clicking on the embedded player above.
