We've Got It Covered #90

I guess most of you will already know this, but in case you missed the memo, Fence Records recently announced that they'll be putting on a brand new event in St Andrews, Fife over the weekend of Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th April called the Eye O’ The Dug.
Boasting a line up which will include King Creosote & John Hopkins (performing Diamond Mine in full), KT Tunstall, Hot Chip (a live set by Alexis Taylor and Joe Goddard, and a DJ set), Django Django, The Pictish Trail, Errors, Dutch Uncles, Francois & The Atlas Mountains, Withered Hand, Conquering Animal Sound, R.M. Hubbert, James Yorkston, Seamus Fogarty, Rozi Plain and Kid Canaveral, plus there's still loads of more bands still to be announced. Tickets for the gig are priced at a very reasonable £45 (plus £1.50 for postage), further details on the festival can be found here.

Talking of Fence related things, on Monday coming it will be two years since the death of American singer songwriter, Mark Linkous, best-known as leader of Sparklehorse. Although I would never claim to be the biggest Sparklehorse fan, I did catch them live a couple of times, but it did sadden me to see someone so young lose their fight with depression. It was for the this reason that I have decided to post a cover of Sparklehorse's 'It's a Wonderful Life' featuring the Pictish Trail, King Creosote and Adem. Recorded for the BBC at HomeGame in 2010, you should still be able to watch the video for this here.
