Illuminated by a couple of 60 watt bulbs it wasn’t easy to snap Lost Garden when they played at West Street Live in Sheffield on June 26th. The venue tries to put on live music most evenings which is great, but having booked Danse Society to play, and dragging them all the way from Liverpool, you might have thought it was worth telling someone about the event! Not even a hand scribbled poster on the window. Anyhow, Lost Garden were invited to open the proceedings, and it was interesting to hear them incorporating some drum patterns and other more aggressive elements into the sound, perhaps mindful of the hard core goths who did turn up for the show. Danse Society? They were astonishingly loud (and I speak as someone who saw Deep Purple when they were still officially the loudest rock band in the world!) which rather took the shine off it for us, although you have to say they seemed to have it all together.
The Star has run a piece about Lost Garden playing at Record Collector, sadly, due to space restraints, it’s likely to be Nick on his own. More details to follow.
Lost Garden played a couple of gigs to celebrate the launch of their debut CD Cotyledon including Record Collector and Cafe#9. A good time was had by all and thanks to Barry and Steve for letting us into their venues!
Barry asked for a poster for the Lost Garden appearance at his famous Record Collector shop (see below), our sleeve designer has obliged.
What better way to launch a CD than at the very wonderful Record Collector shop at Broomhill? We will be squeezing in amongst Barry’s collection to play a short set on Friday, May 22nd at 12 noon.
The CD will be on sale but if you cannot get along, check the EE shop out.

The Lost Garden CD album has arrived, and the limited edition fold out digipak looks good. The band signed a box of copies for all the pre-orders (and a few extra if you are quick). Any pre-orders will ship on the 24th. Lost Garden are planning some local shows in unusual venues both to promote the release and support indie shops. Dates will be published shortly.
We have at last got a confirmed shipping date for the LOST GARDEN CD, and expect to get our stock during the week commencing April 20th. Apologies for the time-lag. Our aim is to get pre-order copies out that week all being well. In case you missed it, pre-order stock will be signed by the two band members. Read more about the CD here.
