The DF118s

Date: 02 February 2018

Location: East Kilbride Arts Centre

Time: 20:00

The DF118s 2 Feb 2018 8:00pm £7.50 East Kilbride Arts Centre

The DF118s

 

The DF118’s were started by Rab McCahill (of Esperanza & The Counterfeit Clash) and long term bass collaborator Hugh Lynch. They first discussed the idea of a funky-punky-psychedelic-ska band at Wickerman 2015 where Rab was performing with Esperanza and Hugh, a graphic artist, was providing projections. Ironically, this would turn out to be the final Wickerman Festival, but from its ashes and that fateful conversation, The DF118’s have emerged.

With commitments elsewhere, the new band took some time to get going. First on board was drummer Johnny Leslie who has previously played with Rab in The Counterfeit Clash. Next was James Travers (previously of The Tartan Rascals). At the time he’d been prescribed pain-killers for a sore back. They sent him to cloud 9 ;) and so the name DF118s came courtesy of the new rhythm guitarist’s medication. Finally Alex “Accy” Scott (also of The Tartan Rascals) and Gerry McCahill (Rab’s brother) were tasked with general rebel, rabbie rousing and on-stage shenanigans.

Musically the DF118s mix ska, punk, funk and psychedelia into a potent and addictive cocktail. Lyrically, the songs take you on a rollercoaster ride. On the journey, we hear tales of love, virtue and vice – all served up DF118 style. Likened to, among others, The Clash, Dr Feelgood and The Happy Mondays. The songs are heart felt, honest and provocative. Sometimes tongue-in-cheek and sometimes disturbingly gritty.

Cost: £7.50


Shelagh McDonald with Nigel H Seymour in Concert

Date: 03 February 2018

Location: East Kilbride Arts Centre

Time: 20:00

Shelagh McDonald with Nigel H Seymour in Concert 3 Feb 2018 8:00pm £12.00 East Kilbride Arts Centre

Shelagh McDonald with Nigel H Seymour in Concert

 

International singer songwriter Nigel H Seymour and the legendary folk rock singer Shelagh McDonald have joined forces, and are once more treading the boards of the concert stage creating a new musical experience after a prolonged absence by Shelagh.

Shelagh McDonald’s story is the stuff of legend. After her rise to international fame in the early 70’s, only to ‘disappear’ after three very successful album releases…to appear again in the mid 2000’s

To see Shelagh McDonald play in the flesh today, is a history making experience for people, owing to the fact that Shelagh had no intention of picking up a guitar and playing it again after her legendary disappearance…

It has taken several years for Shelagh MacDonald to achieve her present point of performance, which recently has taken another twist with her reinstatement by BMG in London, who are now re issuing her back catalogue on vinyl and CD with updated cover and notes.

Nigel H Seymour’s story is as wildly vivid as Shelagh’s in many ways with Releases in South America, and recently his ‘Europe’ album in the UK, which made a prominent mark…

No one who ventures to see these two artists will be disappointed, on the contrary, they will leave after with a feeling of having seen and heard something quite unique, and very ‘different’. Seymour’s unique voice is matched by Shelagh McDonalds incredible guitar style and equally incredible vocal.

Cost: £12.00
