20 Oct 2011, 20:14 by hortronBeing a member of that infamous group who’re just that teeny-tiny little bit too young to have appreciated them when they were first around, I got into Plumtree as a result of Brian Lee O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim comics. From the very first listen of the track from which the series takes its name (that’s Scott Pilgrim from Predicts the Future, if you weren’t sure) I knew this would be a love affair lasting many moons. I’ve just recently picked up the band’s first record, entitled Mass Teen Fainting, and it’s wonderful. Full of jingly-jangly guitars, harmonised vocals and a little bit of angst and awkwardness, it’s one of those rare records that makes your feet do that thing wot they do sometimes… I think it’s called ‘dancing’, but don’t quote me on that.

12 Feb 2007, 01:41 by rainerflooThis lovely idea got a second chance this weekend, after sufficient encouragement its first time out, around this time last year. Organizers say they want it to be more than a festival of local folkies, and indeed they did book some acts from outside the regular Hali folk giggers. Not a lot, but hey, they're just getting going. Anyway, who cares? The lineup was great, tickets were cheap, scheduling was smart, and the venue I bought (Bus Stop) was great for sight and sound. Hoo-rah. Below, some artifacts:
One of our best songwriters, surely: Amelia Curran
A discovery, for me, this Jenn Grant. Her nervous, awkward humility in the song circle had me cringing sympathetically until she started to play. Not sure what the confidence issue is - terrific songs performed exquisitely. Her album comes out in April and I'll be getting it.
