Do you remember your first mixtape? Maybe you do, maybe you don’t. Those that do, cast your mind back for a moment...
Right, that's enough. Back in the room. We have an album launch proposal to get on with here.
PALS! The Banana Sessions proudly present our debut album, Mixtape. Over the course of four years; things change, people change and song-writing changes. Over the course of four years, this is what The Banana Sessions have been writing. This mixtape was made for you. It's cost us a whole bunch of money, emotional (and slightly mental) trauma & an abundance of wrinkles... but it's landed. The time has come to celebrate this unleashed beast of a record with us. So whip your party poppers out.
Support comes in the shape of the absolutely mind-blowing/face-melting/spine-tingling (delete as appropriate) fiddle & guitar duo, Tom Oakes & Ross Couper (www.rossandtom.com), who have just been nominated for 'Best Up and Coming Artist' in the Scottish Traditional Music Awards. Expect explosive fiddle accompanied by a multi award winning guitarist and flautist. These dudes are two VERY sought after musicians and we're delighted to have them on board the banana boat.
As if that wasn't enough, we'll have DJ Barry Ramsay on the decks providing us with the most delectable of tune spins all night long.
There are only three rules for the evening:
1. Leave your airs and graces at the door.
2. Buy a copy of our album. Or two. You know, whatever.
3. Have a pure barry time. It's The Banana Sessions' annual Christmas party, after all.
4. What are you doing reading the fourth rule? We told you there were only three.
Lots of love.
The Banana Sessions.
