Scotland’s Spare Snare, are a lo-fi band from Dundee, founded in the early 1990s. The band have released 11 albums and 2 compilations to date, released on their own Chute Records as well as record 4 John Peel sessions by the late ,great John Peel.
What better way to celebrate Spare Snare’s 30th birthday than reuniting with Steve Albini to record their 12th album, in Leith, assisted by Rod Jones of Idlewild.
Featuring 10 brand-new songs written over the past year, the album shows off the Dundee band’s new six-piece line-up, along with two legendary guests. Gary Barnacle and Terry Edwards, who met for the first time on the session, duet on more than half the album, bringing a new texture and urgency to the Spare Snare sound.
