Vulture Party is the lovechild of a handful of bands coming from the Falkirk area. David was the founding member of Sweethearts of the Prison Rodeo and asked Louise(formerly of Louise Against the Elements and subsequently Martha and the Moodies) to feature onthe recording of their second album, Pigs in the Bull Ring (Humans Like Beasts), where they realised their vocal styles gelled.
Dickson met David and Louise after Adam Stafford recommended them for the Transatlantic recording project he was working on with pianist Graham Marjoribanks. Graham and Dickson had formed Out of the Swim in the noughties, but the band had a hiatus when Graham moved to Canada. After a number of yearsthough, they decided not to let the distancestop them from making music and, usingmoderngear, to write and recordan EP of collaborations with (mainly) Falkirk based musicians.
During the process of working on the Out of the Swim material, David, Louise and Dickson noticed similarities in their musical preferences and ambitions –and that they made each other laugh. Dickson, also the bassist indream pop band, L-space, was subsequently invited by David and Louise to work on a new project; that project became Vulture Party.Dickson and Graham had worked with established drummer, Lee Burgoyne (The Ray Summers; Davey Horne) on the Out of the Swim project, so Lee was asked if he‟d drum on Vulture Party‟s album, to which he agreed. Given other responsibilities though, Lee couldn‟t commit to playing live, so Louise asked her old school pal, RoddyCampbell, if he fancied joining the band to play live and to work on future material. Roddy drummed in the now defunct dance band The Insomnia Project and has been a long standing member of Falkirk folk outfit, The Tonkerers. After listening to the album and digging it, Vulture Party was complete.The band enjoysa mask from time to time, andmixing the playful with the sinister as part of their creative output.
