Remember Remember – Imagining Things (2008)
Summer-ish, 2004, and a chance gig at Glasgow School of Art bore much delightful fruit. First up was a very early performance from fluoro-techno livewire Germlin – alias Joe Howe of Gay Against You – and thereafter came local prog-brainiacs Multiplies. (I’ll update this post with a review of the show that I wrote for Plan B magazine when I eventually manage to rake it out). I often think back to Multiplies, an excellent yet short-lived band which spawned Dananananaykroyd , The Royal We and – not least – Remember Remember: the epic, ambient post-rock vehicle of Graeme Ronald. Rumours abound that new Remember Remember material is in the offing (on Mogwai’s Rock Action imprint) but, in the meantime, here’s a gorgeous track, and a mesmeric film, from his eponymous 2008 debut album.
