Jeffrey Lewis + The Burning Hell + The Narcissist Cookbook
Jeffrey Lewis is coming over to Scotland for his first appearance in Stirling. Born and raised New Yorker Jeffrey Lewis is a comic book and indie rock musician. haring some aesthetic songwriting territory with the likes of Sebadoh, Lou Reed, Jonathan Richman or Kimya Dawson. Beginning with homemade lo-fi cassettes in the late 90s, and moving on to touring the world and releasing "proper" albums since 2001,
"Weird? Very... but also downright inspiring" - Rolling Stone
Mind-blowing" - NME
"Really great and impressive and inspiring and exciting... There's not a lot of people that can tell a story and use language like that in music." - Will Oldham
Supporting the tour are Ariel Sharratt and Mathias Kom are the core members of the Canadian band The Burning Hell, and have been on the road in one form or another since 2007, playing everywhere from the chaos of Glastonbury to the loneliness of the Arctic Circle, popping up in bars, festival tents, living rooms, abandoned bunkers, and a mental asylum in rural France along the way. Musically, the lineup and sound of the Burning Hell has been ever-changing, running the gamut from introspective folk to hyperactive rock and roll.
"Even Jesus is going to enjoy this once he finally gets here."
Tom Robbins, BBC Introducing
"Canada's The Burning Hell write the kind of literate, funny, catchy songs that makes you want to learn all the words and shout them passionately back in their faces." Drowned in Sound
Opening the night is Stirling's own The Narcissist Cookbook. Folk-punk oratory. Often loud, sometimes quiet, and always kind of obnoxious. A local favourite performing his own music that is well known and regarded in the local area. A cracking opener to the night.
