Manic Pop Thrills have plenty to say on The Grand Gestures THIRD album due for release 19th December….great stocking filler!
One of Scotland’s unsung treasures over the last couple of years has undoubtedly been the Grand Gestures.
Without much in the way of fuss Jan Burnett of Spare Snare has put out two fine albums of lo-fi electronica with the assistance of a talented array of vocalists.
The third Grand Gestures album ‘Third’ will be released next month and MPT is honoured to be able to premiere two tracks from the record this evening after two tracks were first aired on Glasgow Podcart last week.
First off, Grahame Skinner is a newcomer to the Grand Gestures family. Amongst others he has been a member of the Jazzateers and Hipsway and currently fronts Skinner, a collective of Glasgow musicians.
Grahame explained how he became involved with the Grand Gestures.
