Reindeer Section Gets Bigger for New LP
Catherine Lewis reports:
Last year's Y'all Get Scared Now Ya Hear! featured members of Mogwai (John Cummings), Arab Strap (Aidan Moffat), Belle & Sebastian (Richard Colburn, Mick Cooke, Bob Kildea), Astrid, and others. This year's lineup is expanded to include a total of 27 musicians, including folks from Teenage Fanclub (Norman Blake), Idlewild (Roddy Woomble), the Vaselines (Eugene Kelly), plus other members of Arab Strap (Malcolm Middleton and Colin MacPherson).
This Scottish supergroup will be releasing a single, "You Are My Joy," on Bright Star Recordings June 10th before Son of Evil Reindeer comes out on the 24th, on Bright Star (UK) and Pias America (U.S.). Tracklist:
01 Grand Parade
In addition, The Reindeer Section will be playing the Summer Sonic Festival in Japan on August 18th (Tokyo) and 19th (Osaka), along with Morrissey, the Hives, Suede, and others. No word yet on how many of the 'Section members will be travelling to the Far East for those shows, but it may be enough to warrant a charter plane!
