The Douglas Firs are spoiling us at the minute, having recently gifted us with a free EP 'Season's Greetings' under the moniker of I Like Ceareal, My Friend, the band have announced details of a new EP under their own name. ‘The Douglas Firs: EP1 (Songs recorded winter 2010 and winter 2011)’ will be available on tape and CD at the band’s upcoming Edinburgh show at Old St. Paul’s on Friday 24th February for £2. The tape is presented with free mp3 downloads.
The band had this to say for themselves;
"We record a lot of songs that never see the light of day. Some are live, some are recorded in the bedroom or in the studio. This EP is a sort of catharsis (or perhaps more accurately: a purging) of the demos, experiments and discards from the last couple of years."
More details on this Friday’s live extravaganza can be found here.
Hop to it people of Auld Reekie and beyond!
