Show Review

A song that proved pivotal during the recording of Mirror Mirror, "Rose Red" was inspired by 'Bible John' a Glaswegian serial killer who found his victims at the city's Barrowlands Ballroom.

Artist Bio

Glasgow's Sons and Daughters don't follow the indie pop formula made famous by their counterparts (Belle & Sebastian, Camera Obscura). Adele Bethel, David Gow, Scott Paterson, and Ailidh Lennon, who formed the group in 2001, compose a roughcast folk-rock sound similar to the likes of Smog and Cat Power. Prior to getting together, Bethel (guitar) and Gow (drums) toured and recorded with the Zephyrs and Arab Strap. Paterson (guitar/bass) chiefed March of Dimes for a short time while Lennon (mandolin/bass) studied classical composition at a University nearby. In 2002, Sons and Daughters self-released The Lovers EP. Love the Cup, an intriguing homage to Johnny Cash, followed a year later. In 2005, Sons and Daughters issued their studio full-length, The Repulsion Box. With the help of producer Bernard Butler, the band released their most fully-realised album to date in 2008, This Gift. - allmusic.com
