Debut from The Echo Session
Scotland’s best-kept secret The Echo Session recently signed with Flowers In The Dustbin, Scotland’s vibrant new indie label. The band have played gigs around the UK for the last few years gathering a semi legendary status. A combination of lifestyle and a notorious perfectionism have prevented the band from releasing any recordings. Until now!
Being long time admirers the label are extremely excited to be working with The Echo Session. And why? Stephen McKee, manager of Flowers In The Dustbin, said ‘to put it simply, we’d compare this to signing The Kinks’. Song writing on a par with Ray Davies, The Pretty Things, The Coral and The La’s, The Echo Session already have a legendary vault of recordings, and have recently been recording tracks with original Glasvegas engineer Jim Neilson. The debut album is scheduled for release early 2010.
The Echo Session have already picked up airplay on BBC Radio Scotland, XFM and Radio Clyde.
Based in Glasgow, the band describes their history as follows: A meets B in an orrible orrible call centre with an initial vision of a quirky beat sound with contagious harmonies. C joins the band with an agenda of rootsy rockin and impressions of the "burd" and "quentin". Last but not least D, our very own drummer man superhero, joined after a lengthy assignment with local bands "about time timmy!" and "Red Leicester".
The first of The Echo Session’s new recordings to see the light of day, the credit crunch anthem 'Tell Me', is a melodic tale of fat cat bankers, expense account fiddling MP’s, and ripped off ordinary folk. The question ‘Tell Me Where The Money’s At?’ resonates not only through this song, but in our every day lives right now. The rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer. Who are you going to listen to? If you’re sick of greedy MP’s and immoral bankers, we’d suggest you check out The Echo Session.
The debut single will be available Monday 5th October as a download on Flowers In The Dustbin - www.myspace.com/FlowersInTheDustbin
