10/10 Reply to ReviewBot3000 Customer review, 18th July 2014
What a load of ill informed tosh from ReviewBot3000. If they knew anything they'd know KC was boo'd at a recent Glasgow festival gig for having a dig at the YES folks. Read the discussions at www.alteregotradingcompany.org and you'll see plenty of his comments, so this is not about farewell to the UK. Apart from which, the indy thing isn't about the English... the arrogance. He doesn't tend to write about Scotland, more likely his home area the East Neuk - what songwriter doesn't write about home?
The songs were written as the soundtrack for a film commissioned for the Commonwealth Games celebrating Scots life throughout the 20th century. Watch it (BBC iPlayer) and you'll see the effects that he was going for. A mix of new songs and old songs re-arranged, sometimes with new lyrics (Pauper's Dough). Think silent movie with KC as piano player. It's a great achievement. Do yourself a favour and see the film - you'll want the album afterwards.
