Review: The Wave Pictures

Moshi Moshi's The Wave Pictures hit Glasgow's CCA, to be greeted by some die hard fans and music aficionados alike as they performed what seemed an improvised, unrehearsed set, one which kept the audience very happy however. With Glasgow's West Princes supporting, the guys from London had a nicely warmed and pretty satisfied crowd, which made the whole gig-playing process a lot more enjoyable for them no doubt. Well that is certainly as it seemed on stage.

Chris Drummond: It’s simply extraordinary language and brilliant storytelling

One of Australia's top theatre companies will make it to Edinburgh this year with award-winning reimaginging of brutally funny and profound short story by Nobel Prize winner Patrick White. Featuring live music from the Zephyr Quartet and spectacular lighting design by Tony Award winner Nigel Levings, it sounds intriguing. Chris Drummond, Artistic Director of Brink, spoke with The Fountain about what we are likely to expect from The Aspirations of Daise Morrow, and what inspired him to work with Patrick White's work.

Review: Beachcomber by Stephen Thom

Beachcomber, the opening track off Dante's most recent album is also the title of several things including a poem by George Mackay Brown and more recently the title of a book of short stories by Dante's mandolin strummer, Stephen Thom. This limited edition collection of stories are poetic and intrinsically linked to the Mackay Brown poem in that it too looks at the cycle of life, but less so from a fishing and agricultural perspective. Modernised and up-to-date we see all sorts within this gem, mental health, relationship break up and heartache and alcoholism just to top it all off.
