Everything Flows and Celtic Connections present 25 Years of Creeping Bent: Things Are Tough, We Can Still Picnic
THE CREEPING BENT ORGANISATION launched 25 years ago with a maximedia show (A Leap Into The Void) at Glasgow’s Tramway. Everything Flows and Celtic Connections present ‘Things Are Tough, We Can Still Picnic’ at the Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA) on Friday 1st Feb. The show will be unique on many levels, and will feature the debut live performances by Gareth Sager & The Hungry Ghosts and Port Sulphur.
Both artists are firm favourites with BBC 6Music and Radio Scotland and have recorded several live sessions for the stations. Gareth Sager is best known for being a member of The Pop Group and Rip Rig and Panic, and has recently completed his Creeping Bent Triptych with the release of Gareth Sager & The Hungry Ghosts – Juicy Rivers to great acclaim (including being in MOJO’s albums of the year).
Port Sulphur is an avant-rock collective operating under the aegis of Douglas MacIntyre. Their debut album – Paranoic Critical – features collaborations with many stalwarts of the post-punk scene (Davy Henderson, Jock Scot, James Kirk, Alan Vega, Vic Godard) and some of Glasgow’s new breed centred at The Green Door Studio (S.J.Smith, Erik Sandberg, Katy Lironi, Graham Wann).
Opening the evening will be THE PLASTIC YOUTH, who have recently released their debut single to BBC 6Music acclaim on Riverside Music College’s Little Tiger label.
