Everything Flows in association with Celtic Connections
EVERYTHING FLOWS is a new cultural events organisation, and to highlight their inauguration they are producing two shows for Celtic Connections.
Esteemed independent labels Marina Records and The Creeping Bent Organisation celebrate being operational for 25 years, therefore it seems prescient for both labels to have shows as part of Celtic Connections.
The first show takes place at the Mitchell Theatre on Friday 18th Jan. GOOSEBUMPS, 25 years of Marina Records (Krach Auf Wiedersehen!) will feature artists who have recorded for Hamburg’s Marina Records over the past quarter century – The Pearlfishers, Cowboy Mouth, James Kirk, The Secret Goldfish, Jazzateers, The Kingfishers, Malcolm Ross, The Bathers, Sugartown, Colin Steele, The Magic Circles, Starless and Duglas T. Stewart. Vocalists from the aforementioned will perform songs from their repertoire and some choice covers, backed by the Marina AllStars (Campbell Owens, Douglas MacIntyre, David Scott, Mick Slaven, Gordon Wilson).
Opening the evening will be FENELLA, who will be releasing their debut album in April. Fenella is signed to Little Tiger Records, which is run by students on the HND Music Business course at Riverside Music College, who will be releasing the album as a joint venture with the Last Night From Glasgow label.
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, But 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 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.

Port Sulphur will be live in session on Vic Galloway’s BBC Radio Scotland show on January 28th.
