From the band:
Peat and Diesel – Live at the Barrowlands
The year 2020 started out fine but as the year went on it has changed the way we live dramatically.
Remember when thousands of strangers would all pile into a gig, jammed in like sheep at the fank, not a care in the world, just there to feel the buzz and magic of live music. It was crazy. Are these days gone forever??
Let’s go back to January 2020, the first time Peat & Diesel arrived in Glasgow, to play the famous Barrowlands Ballroom (aka The Barras). There were an army of 2000 true P&D fans waiting to have the craziest night both the band and the crowd had ever seen and if you don’t believe it… this album will prove it!!!
“Peat & Diesel - Live at the Barrowlands 2020” is an album which was recorded to capture the incredible sound of the crowd (not the band!) and the atmosphere they brought with them that special night. It is not in any way recorded with any fancy tools to sort any mistakes or nonsense, its 100% raw, just the way Peat & Diesel wanted it.
So grab a dram, get yourself sitting by the fire, sit back, close your eyes and listen to the Album and picture yourself there in the good days when live music was the place to be. Or if you want you can open your windows and crank the stereo to 99 and let the neighbours hear the racket!
Maybe after listening to this and when the future of Live music looks more promising we could pop along to the Barras, us, yourself and 1999 other Coves & Blones and take the roof off!!
