Fleeing from Pigeons Records

A record label and blog from the same idiot that gave you Bearded Magazine

DJing – 29 April – London

If anyone needs an excuse to go to a wonderful Let’s go Baboon show, I will, in the words of Richard Curtis writing an awful screenplay for a boat-based pirate radio film, spinning some records at The Half Moon in Herne Hill (near Brixton, London) on 29 April. The remit is folky, but expect a bit of a mix of the weird and wonderful… including a Postman Pat b-side.

The details for the show are:

The Diamond Family Archivewww.myspace.com/thediamondfamilyarchive
The Diamond Family Archive is the delightfully experimental yet always melodic act of Laurence Collyer. Crossing the haunted soul of Lambchop with the quiet folk sweetness of Mark Hollis. A hushed vocal delivery backed by a beguiling mix of electronica and traditional instruments to devastating effect.

“Strange and tender songs built around layered loops of live guitar, lap steel and electronica. Leftfield, oddball and gorgeous, a beautiful and fragile noise and sublime lo-fi melancholia”- Stolen Recordings

We welcome Citizen Helene as our showcase act for the evening. So convinced we are of her potential, we included stand out track P.S I Don’t Love You, on the first Let’s go baboon compilation. Citizen Helene is a genuine talent, Beach Boys-esque harmonies drift beguilingly over a plaintive acoustic backdrop to remarkable effect. Live, Citizen Helene is joined by her a girl group called The Racists…
