SPECIAL GUEST'S CHECKMASSES
Irvine Welsh - ‘When I first heard this amazing album I felt like I’d been waiting all my life for it. Now it’s here. A photo album I can listen to and so much more besides.’
Ladies and gentlemen, lads and lassies - introducing the all-star Edinburgh collective ‘Out of the Ordinary’ with their first live performance including 'Meadows' their debut single and an exclusive showcase of selected tracks from the forthcoming LP ‘Stranger Things Have Happened.’
Directions by band leader Chris Grieve (Scotland’s foremost string and horn arranger), accompanied by the full vocal force of the Bevvy Sisters, Portobello’s soul blues queen Roseanne Erskine, Edinburgh’s own up and coming Danny McGeever (hand-picked by producer Joseph Malik), legendary auld skool DJ Eh-wun beat-directing on turntables - and a debut performance by Leith noire spoken wordsmith Irish Adam.
In a time when the city’s arts and music venues are closing down, the project brings together three generations of musicians who align the sound of the city - the journey for ‘Out of the Ordinary’ has only just begun. With the diverse talents of three generations of artists from Scotland and beyond, we formed the collective 'Out of the Ordinary' and created an original Edinburgh soundtrack reflecting and representing the kaleidoscopic fabric of culture in this fine city.
‘Stranger things have Happened’ is our musical love letter to the community we all live in.
"CHECK MASSES are a Leith trio whose songs blend hip-hop, psychedelia, dub and soul influences using samples, technology and live instrumentation. Their self-recorded & produced album NIGHTLIFE will be released on the Triassic Tusk label in October 2019. They will perform a short acoustic set at The Voodoo Rooms, Edinburgh with the 'Out of the Ordinary' collective on 13th July 2019."
