Bricolage started playing live in some of Glasgow’s seamier environs at the tail-end of 2005, perfecting their louche and stylish Postcard / Vic Godard - influenced uplifting pop over the early months of 2006. By the summer of 2006, live dates had seen them play live with an eclectic array of artists (including Fire Engines, Long Blondes and Sun Ra’s Arkestra), which helped build up a following.
Bricolage began 2007 by releasing 7” single (Looting Takes the Waiting Out of Wanting) on Fantastic Plastic Records. The band also spent the year touring with Franz Ferdinand, 1990s, and Vic Godard & the Subway Sect. A third 7” single (The Waltzers), was released on Memphis Industries in September 2007.
Bricolage release their eponymous debut album on Creeping Bent on January 26th 2009. The album has been produced by former Altered Images mainstay Stephen Lironi, and features 12 songs that emanate a cinematic and literary glow that illuminates late night tales Glasgow’s West End.
