Fake Gods 'Chords of Human Kindness' EP

Given that this is a quiet time for Big Dish/Steven Lindsay info, I thought I would bring you up to date with my own band. Fake Gods has released its 'Chords of Human Kindness' EP through Bandcamp. The 3-song EP features 'My Love Will Follow You', 'On A Sea of Fleur-De-Lis', and 'Reunion Hill' and can be downloaded for free here. All we ask in return is your e-mail address. We promise never to spam you!

The band's official website is here.

Steven Lindsay: Aspect Prize nomination

Steven Lindsay has recently been nominated for The Aspect Prize. The Aspect Prize is organized in conjunction with the Paisley Art Institute and is one of the art world's biggest privately funded awards. It aims to help talented painters realize their full commercial potential. Four finalists have been selected from artists who submit works to the Aspect Exhibition at the Paisley Art Gallery and Museum including our very own Mr Lindsay. The premier award will be issued at the Aspect Prize Winners’ London Exhibition to be held at The Fleming Collection in January 2011.

More details can be found in this publication. Steven's sub page at the Aspect Prize is here.

We wish him good luck!

Given that this blog still receives a considerable number of hits, I thought I should make a greater effort provide updates. Firstly, I would like to direct you to Glenn MacDiarmid's website StevenLindsayIsBraw which is dedicated to all things Lindsay and Big Dish and is well worth a look. It features band biographies, pictures, reviews, and rare tracks. What's not to love?

I caught Brian McFie live recently at the Queens Hall in Edinburgh, as part of ex Love & Money singer James Grant's band. Quite fantastic he was as well. If you haven't checked out Grant's solo material, I can heartily recommend doing so.

I have a few other live shows on mp3, from which I will try to upload songs soon.

Finally, a shameless plug for my own band Fake Gods. We are in the process of recording live takes of songs for an EP, provisionally entitled 'Chords Of Human Kindness' which will be out in late summer. These will be uploaded to our website in the coming weeks. Our debut album 'Wine To Water' was released last year and is available to download in its entirety for free via Bandcamp.
