LOVES009: Rick Redbeard / Adam Stafford – Split single
We are proud to announce the release of a split 7″ single featuring Rick Redbeard and Adam Stafford on 25th June 2012.
The vinyl features “Now We’re Dancing” and “Vanishing Tanks”, with the second song from each also included in the free download.
Rick Redbeard is the solo musical alias of Rick Anthony, singer from acclaimed Glasgow sextet The Phantom Band. Born and raised in the Aberdeenshire wilderness, Anthony began using the Redbeard name for his solo material sometime around 2006-7 after swindling it from a pirate. He has performed sporadically around Scotland since then, and the Gerry Loves Records split 7″ is the first Rick Redbeard release of any nature. He is currently at work putting the finishing touches to his debut album.
Adam Stafford is a musician and filmmaker from Falkirk. Formerly of the group Y’all is Fantasy Island, he issued two experimental a capella albums, “Awnings” and “Miniature Porcelain Horse Emporium” in 2009. His debut studio set “Build a Harbour Immediately” was released in 2011 and was critically acclaimed by the Scottish press, turning up on a number of end-of-year polls in 2011. He is currently trying to write a horror film set in 1993, about a maintenance train driver who infiltrates a Norse Black Metal cult in the rural North of Scotland.
