…and here’s the blurb:

Jonnie Common – live set feat. Peter Kelly (Moon Unit, Song Of Return, Galchen)

He’s an affiliate of Inspector Tapehead, a former member of Down the Tiny Steps, and the sorcerer behind the recent Deskjob compilation, but Glasgow’s Jonnie Common finally takes to the spotlight with Master of None, his debut album – and what a lo-fi electro-folk wonder it is. From existential casio-pop opener ‘Heir to the Throne’ to kung-fu cantata ‘Hand-Hand’, Master of None showcases Common’s vivid songwriting and production chops. The skewed-pop amble and harmonica swell of ‘Summer Is For Going Places’ is glorious; as is the sci-fi glow of ‘Photosynth’. You’ll forgive us for remarking, then, that Common is unique indeed.”
Nicola Meighan – The List (4/5)

Red Deer Club present their first album on vinyl, from no other than Jonnie Common. A summerous collection of wondrous pop oddities, coming in at just over thirty minutes, this is the debut album from one of Scotland’s finest exports. The label has been a fan of Jonnnie’s work since his ‘Down The Tiny Steps’ output. We are so proud of this limited release.

JONNIE COMMON : ‘MASTER OF NONE’ : ltd vinyl and/or download : out August 1st 2011

The Japanese War Effort
Ambient pop playah and one half of dream-beat combo Conquering Animal Sound, Martin Moog aka The Japanese War Effort would not miss his big bro’s album launch for all the Bru in China.

River Of Slime
Kev Sim is the elusive electronic genius behind Edinburgh art pop pranksters FOUND. He’s finally getting his act together and releasing some solo material on Glasgow blog label, Phuturelabs. Be afraid.

Double Fun DJs
Keeping it warm and creamy between live sets, the lads are under Jonnie’s specific instruction of “Nae crowd pleasers.”

UPDATE: Since there’s no Edinburgh launch, live music will end around 11pm with the Double Fun DJs continuing to the 11.30pm curfew.  This is to allow anyone coming from Edinburgh time to catch the last train. Edinburgh train tickets can be shown at the merch desk to claim a wee gift.
