NEXT GLASGOW DATE CONFIRMED!..

I'm very excited to announce that the next NS & The Infomaniacs 'hometown' date has been confirmed..we are buzzing about this one as we'll be playing in the unique and intimate setting of The Panopticon in Glasgow on Saturday 29th September.

The gig will feature two sets, a Neil S acoustic set with guests followed by a full band 'Infomaniacs' finale to the evening in the second set. Having lived and played in and around Glasgow for most of my days and played just about everywhere there is to play it's always nice when you get the opportunity to play a great venue in the city for the first time.

The venue is steeped in history and it'll be a buzz to perform on the stage of the oldest surviving music hall in the world in what should be a very memorable night!

Tickets (priced £8) are now available from this site (using the link below), this one is expected to sell out quickly so get your tickets fast folks!

ON THE RADIO

When you release a new record it's always one of the biggest thrills when you become aware that your songs are being played on the radio. I still remember the first time. My earliest band A Chocolate Morning got our first demo played on the legendary BBC Scotland show Beat Patrol and it was one of the highlights of my teenage life, what an adrenalin rush it was to hear the song we'd worked on crackling through the airwaves back at us that night. I've been lucky to have most of what I've done over the years receive excellent radio support and since the 'Geography & Luck' album release in June it's been hugely satisfying to find that the new album has been getting aired far and wide.

All twelve songs on the album have received multiple plays on radio already, many of the stations who have been supporting the record have awarded us 'Artist Of The Week' or 'Album Of The Week' status which has been fantastic. Special mentions must go to Irvine Beat FM, Dunoon CR, Camglen Radio, Keith CR & Sunny Govan Radio who have all given the album loads of airtime and coverage. It was great fun to drop in to Irvine Beat, Sunny Govan and Camglen to do interviews and live sessions just after the album's release as well. Shows which I'm a regular listener of such as the Roddy Hart & Billy Sloan shows on BBC Radio Scotland and Jim Gellatly at Amazing Radio have played tracks and it was very satisfying to feature on their playlists. In Spain the excellent Plastico Elastico show has played several tracks and the Ice Cream Power Pop & More show had G&L as album of the week too leading to airplay across the globe as the show was syndicated to the likes of Sweden, Hong Kong, Canada & the U.S.A. There's been loads more radio play Stateside too courtesy of Radio Free Phoenix, Radio Free Americana and The Music Authority amongst others. So with over 120 plays already in the first six weeks since the album's release I'm very satisfied indeed, and that's only counting the plays that I've been made aware of so far!

So what's the biggest radio 'hit' so far from the record?..well, the three singles 'NY Reflection Song', 'Break Me' & 'Ride The Tide' are up there with 'She Talks In Whispers' and 'I Wish I'd Never' running them close. Great to note that my former band The Goldenhour have been picking up some airplay too recently amid all the new album activity which is pleasing. Here's to more of the same in the coming weeks and months, big thanks to everyone who has helped to get the album heard so far.
