'Brooksy and the Sound Collectors' are marking their assault on the MUSIC INDUSTRY AND THE PUBLIC to coincide with exciting news be announced later, with a live show at the spectacular venue that is COTTIERS THEATRE in Glasgow's vibrant west end. Brooksy and Co will be performing songs from their album 'Citizen' released in late 2014 on Itunes and other main music download sites. Citizen has been described as real melodic songs, driving yet relaxed, deceptively intelligent lyrics, observation and questions, all advocating a way of life that's been lived, a life that rejects popular Rock/n/Roll sub culture and myth as predictable and lacking originality of mind. ‘Be one in the crowd not one of the crowd’ 'It's a Revolution YIN YANG'. Brooksy. 'Sing About What You Know About' Joe Strummer of THE CLASH - advice to Brooksy from Joe. Beautifully Timeless - Played it constantly whilst writing (latest novel 'BEDLAM') Chris Brookmyre world renowned author. Our special guests are 'SPIDERS ON MARS' The UKs very best David Bowie tribute band. 'Almost better than the real thing'. http://www.spidersonmars.co.uk/ and King of Birds "King of Birds are Glasgow brothers Charlie and Stirling Gorman. Formed in 2012 their highly crafted songs range from intimate acoustic tracks such as "One Horse Town" and the haunting "Here And Gone" echoing early Neil Young through to the spirited excitement of songs such as "When We Were Kings" and "Peace Of Mind". Following support slots with Simple Minds, Crowded House and John Hiatt and an album released on the Warner Bros label in America, the new songs are based around the simple format of two acoustic guitars and vocals".
