Acoustoblaster Tour 2011

The Ramisco Maki Maki Rocking Horse has been pretty cryptic recently on twitter with all his "Acoustoblaster" talk.  At the weekend it all became clear...

On April 2nd i.e., this Saturday, www.glasgowmusic.co.uk brings us a day-long FREE extravaganza at venues around Glasgow, including King Tuts, Bloc, Vintage Guru, The Ettrick, Mono, Brass Monkey, The Ark and The Arches (with more to be announced).   The aforementioned Horse and Tragic O'Hara will both be putting on 10 minute sets in each venue whilst artist Harvey Greendog gets to work on his flip chart!

Now comes the cooool part... the fabled Acoustoblaster!  No photo's exist yet, but rumour has it that this is an acoustic guitar with a whole load of gadgets gaffer-taped onto it: amp, microphone and tape recorder to name a few.  Each microset will be recorded and given away to a lucky fan along with Harvey's creation.  As well as that, the whole thing will be filmed for a documentary for GlasgowmusicTV.

If you fancy coming along to one or more of these microsets, keep tabs on www.glasgowmusic.co.uk or here for venues and times later on in the week.  Here's a taster of what you might hear...


In related news, The Ramisco Maki Maki Rocking Horse's new release, Fajita's Basement EP is out now to download for £1 over here, with CDs and cassettes available here.  As for Tragic O'Hara, he's got a whole host of goodies over here too!
