2009 was another great year for Round Records, finished in fine style at Ginger's Birthday Bash at the Relentless Garage in London on the 17th December. 28 Musicians came together and performed for almost 3 hours, in a one of a kind gig. Its probably the most ambitious show we've ever put together, but the months of planning more than paid off.
Michael Butler from the Rock n Roll geek show was one of the musicians who took part (he flew in from San Francisco) and has just released his latest podcast where he details his trip and reviews the gig. Check it out at the link below. He also plays some great music from The Wildhearts, The Loyalties, Eureka Machines & Honeycrack.
In other live news, Electric Six finished off their sold out UK tour in fine fashion at the Islington Academy (also on the 17th December) in support of their most recent Round Records release 'Kill'. Its fair to say that the E6 guys are one of the best live bands in the business (and quite possibly the nicest people you'll ever meet) and if you haven't checked out anything post 'Gay Bar' then you are really missing out.
Our New York signings Tragedy (The All Metal Tribute to The Bee Gees) were also out on tour in the UK in December, successfully completing their first 2 week headline jaunt. This trip marked their 4th visit to the UK in 12 months, and their sold out final show in London on the 16th December was a fitting end to the year. 2010 could be a great year for this lycra clad glitter machine.
