Vinny Peculiar - Broadcast, Glasgow, 22/9/2016 and Voodoo Rooms, Edinburgh, 23/9/2016

intro

We profile two Pennyblackmusic shows with singer-songwriter and musician Vinny Peculiar at Broadcast in Glasgow on Thursday September 22nd and at the Voodoo Rooms in Edinburgh on Friday September 23rd


UK musician and poet Vinny Peculiar [aka Alan Wilkes] has been variously described as "An under sung national treasure" ['Uncut' Magazine, 2014), "a warm hearted Morrissey" ['Q' Magazine 2014] and "the missing link between Jarvis Cocker and Roger McGough ['Irish Times# 2014]. He’s released twelve previous albums of outsider pop music to great critical acclaim. His new ‘concept’ album 'Silver Meadows' is inspired by working [he’s a former nurse] and visiting [his schizophrenic brother] in long-stay mental health and learning disability hospitals during the 1980s and early 90s. Peculiar has collaborated with Bill Drummond [KLF, SOUP ART], and his various bands have included ex members of The Smiths, OASIS, Aztec Camera & The Fall. Live shows herald comparisons to Eels, John Cooper Clarke and the more pastoral elements of The Kinks. He’s a veteran of many European and US dates opening for British Sea Power, Edwyn Collins and Luke Haines amongst others and is a former compere on the Glastonbury Acoustic Stage. In a short tour of Scotland, in which he will be playing Pennyblackmusic shows at Broadcast in Glasgow on Thursday September 22nd and at the Voodoo Rooms in Edinburgh on Friday September 23rd. Vinny will be playing songs from both ‘Silver Meadows’ and his extensive back catalogue.
