Today is a special day for a fellow that sadly passed away at the end of 2017. David Law, known as Dil to most folks, features as part of A Day for Dil today, 23 June 2018. Stolen away by evil cancer he was a fine man who enjoyed challenging and wonderfully complex music. Though not close, our paths crossed at various music shows, last in Leeds at the Modular Meet in August 2017, as we stood admiring a live show of Chris Carter of Throbbing Gristle. You can still see this performance here. You also admire us both nodding our heads at an intensely rhythmic live set from Phil Bilsby here at the same event 🙂 And notice Dil proudly wearing his TG t-shirt!
So I was honoured to be invited by Frenchbloke to contribute to a special cassette release available at a show tonight in Glasgow Scotland, which you can listen to here. Having lost my entire family now to this sinister disease I encourage you to pick up the tape if you can tonight, or any copies that might be left over afterwards, or simply make a donation to Macmillan Cancer Trust. You can do that here. Just look at the artist list!
The show itself tonight will be headlined by Ruby/Lesley Rankine, as well as featuring Dave Fleet (Laica), Security and Three Daughters (Frenchbloke & Friends). DJ will be Davie Miller from Finitribe. There will also be a video presentation by Ætheric Anomalies. And some other very special top secret fun things!
Here’s to a special day for a dearly departed friend!!
A Day for Dil.
