Godard in Glasgow, Part 3: VIC.ism

Ahead of his show at The Admiral on Friday 13th November (tickets) , we asked Subway Sect legend and all round post-punk muse Vic Godard if he would like to write us something about playing in Glasgow over the years. In response Vic has composed the definitive guide to Godard in Glasgow…Vic’s Here:

VIC.ism 1st and 2nd December 2012

The Creeping Bent Organisation organised this weekender together with Sounds in the Suburbs, Mao Disney, We Can Still Picnic and Stephen Pastel and the Monorail Film Club. It started with a special Sounds in the Suburbs gig with me and The Sexual Objects doing Subway Sect songs plus a SOBs set at Stereo on the 1st.

Both sets were recorded and produced by Murray Robertson with live sound by Shona Marshall for Live In Stereo Too (gnuinc0009 2013)

Johnny Thunders filmed by Tracey Holloway 1/12/2012 Stereo Glasgow:

Before Mao Disney’s Afternoon Tea at the Poetry Club on the Sunday (02/12/2012) I did an interview with Brian Beadle, filmed by David Graham Scott, in a very noisy (and as it turned out perilous!) location in the environs of Jim Lambie’s Poetry Club:

Part 2:

The afternoon was a memorable one of chat, readings, jazz with tea, scones and sandwiches courtesy of We Can Still Picnic. I was singing with Andy Alston on keyboards and Douglas MacIntyre on guitar, delighted that James Kirk joined us for Holiday Hymn:

and Pale Blue Eyes:

The vintage bus arrives at The Poetry Club:

On Sunday evening we took the vintage bus from the Poetry Club to Monorail Film Club’s presentation at the Glasgow Film Theatre of a screening of Pierrot le Fou, which I got to choose, and a Q & A with Stephen Pastel after the film about the influence of Jean-Luc Godard and European Cinema on the early Subway Sect.
