"Think battered acoustic thrashings, think sarky, smart-mouthed wit and wisdom but most importantly think Lach. Lach is rarely less than a face-ache funny, beat-punk-unplugged joy, and likely to send you home with several favourite new songs"- The Guardian UK Plus: Candythief: Candythief is the musical persona of Diana De Cabarrus. Diana first emerged with a Fence Records release in 2005 and by 2007 was voted second best female act (after Bjork and before PJ Harvey) in the Is This Music? year end poll. Her songs have been heard on BBC Radios 1, 2, 6 and BBC Scotland and she's shared the stage with everyone from Razorlight to King Creosote - www.candythief.com William Douglas: Brilliant Edinburgh songwriter. Feature act on the upcoming Song by Toad Records release 'Lach's Antihoot'. https://www.facebook.com/pages/william-douglas-and-the-wheel/156822096268?sk=app_2405167945 Lee Patterson: A guitar slinging, roots songwriting force of nature! http://lpmusic.org.uk/
