Just a quick post to wish Withered Hand sex perfection, marital happiness and a brilliant LP launch on Wendesday the 23rd. Here are the details of the launch. If you are reading this, you shouldn’t think twice, you should go. Or, at least, find a way to get your hands on this amazing new album. You won’t regret it. You might even thank me. Here are the details:

Withered Hand’s first album, Good News (SL Records), is out NOW-ISH and will be launched via a big joyous party at LEITH DOCKERS CLUB on Wednesday September 23rd. Helping to make this event extra excellent will be some VERY SPECIAL MUSICAL GUESTS, so you should come as soon after 7pm as you possibly can!

Tickets to the magnificent Withered Hand Good News Launch Party cost £4 in advance from wegottickets ( or from Avalanche Records.

Leith Dockers is located on Academy Street in Leith ( It is easy to reach by bus or on foot or by bike, and the beverages are all VERY reasonably priced.

If you can’t make it down to Dockers on the 23rd, Withered Hand has kindly offered to play the Golden Hour CD Launch on Friday the 25th at the Forest. It should be a spectacular night — for details click here.
