"There are always noises happening around my flat" - Lily Higham and Gordon Johnstone talk isolation and recording.

 Interview by Isabella Eastwood This interview ran a little differently – for one, it went on for over a week – as it was all done via WhatsApp chat. However, despite being a lot more confusing than expected with everyone dipping in and out of the conversation, going about our daily lives (as is symptomatic of digital dialogue), I managed to get all the main information relating to L-Space’s song of choice, their lockdown lives and projects to come. The result was a bit of a jigsaw puzzle of Q&As to put together, but what else is lockdown for, if...

"I'm Not A Fan Of Quizzes" - Paul Kelly Chats Isolation With Isabella

Interview by Isabella Eastwood.   Honoured to initiate The Martial Arts’ Paul Kelly into the world of Facebook videocalls, Paul and I discussed how Glasgow’s musicians are coping with the (now easing) physical and social restrictions to our freedoms. Nursing a hangover (we’ve all been there) we talked about stealing pint glasses, vexatious cyclists, and being a philistine. As it turns out, Paul nearly didn’t commit to the Isolation Sessions: “Initially I wasn’t going to do it. Gary asked me the day after lockdown started, which also happened to be the day after my birthday; so I was hungover, on...

"I'm A Terrible Pianist" - David MacGregor Talks Isolation and Still(ness)

"I'm A Terrible Pianist" - David MacGregor Talks Isolation and Still(ness)

Interview by Isabella Eastwood I low-key imposed a video call on David MacGregor (Broken Chanter), somewhat springing it on him with the follow-up “it’s what I’ve been doing for all the interviews so far”. I like to think I softened the blow by emphasising tea and biscuits were, if not mandatory, at the very least highly recommended. I got a tour of his ceilings (some white, some grey) and we discussed being still, the NHS and synthesisers. “I chose ‘Still’ by Annie Booth because the whole EP that that’s on is beautiful, and the arrangement of that song and the...
