SF002 - Gone Wishing / Behold, The Old Bear - Split cassette
Gone Wishing is an acoustic alternative songwriter, with comparison to Bill Callaghan and Mike Kinsella, directing his emotive musing right to the heart. On this release Gone Wishing offers up three brand new tracks; The Watchers, Hoist Your Head Into The Light and Nothing And Nowhere, all of which showcase his heartfelt talent. Gone Wishing has also contributed the artwork for this split release. Please do check out more of his incredible art here - www.facebook.com/gonewishingdoesart
Behold, The Old Bear, led by Raindeer of Mitchell Museum fame, take making fun, quirky and inventive pop music very seriously. With three tracks from them; Restless Days, Demons In Love and Seven Maybe Eight on the other side of this split cassette, we think it's a winning combination.
Gone Wishing is Owen McLaughlin
All instruments played on these tracks were played by Owen McLaughlin with the exception of the bass which was played by Ross Middlemiss.
Recorded by Ross Middlemiss at our Milton St Studio in Dundee.
