Almost seven years ago to the day after having been involved in a horrifying car crash in which he was a backseat passenger, Johnny Lynch – celebrated Isle of Eigg resident, Lost Map Records founder and the man who is Pictish Trail – commemorates the occasion and celebrates his ongoing survival by setting out in a Toyota Avensis to tour the length and breadth of his native Scotland, as well as England and Wales. In typically irreverent fashion, Lynch has named this 13-date, month long jaunt round this sceptred isle as Pictish Trail’s Winter Rewind Acid Reflux Tour. It all promises to be the most immense regurgitative pre-festive fun you could ever hope to have.
Except where noted below, all dates feature Pictish Trail with Suse Bear (fellow Scot and one half of the Glaswegian beat combo Tuff Love) and John B. McKenna from their fellow Lost Map stablemates Monoganon, who will also be there to provide tour support. As Johnny Lynch explains, you can expect to experience “an intimate yuletide Eigg-nog of Hebridean Casio folk, with stripped back, twisted and blissed out regurgitations of ol’ Pictish Trail favourites”. Do yourself a huge, big favour and grab an early Christmas present into the bargain by getting along to one of these shows.
Pictish Trail’s Winter Rewind Acid Reflux Tour is coming to:
GLASGOW, STIRLING, DUNDEE, HARTLEPOOL, EDINBURGH, SHEFFIELD, OXFORD, MANCHESTER (supporting Jane Weaver), LANCASTER, LONDON (supporting Hater), SHREWSBURY, CARDIFF, BRISTOL, STROUD, BRIGHTON, LONDON (again + again), MILTON KEYNES, YORK and HEBDEN BRIDGE.
