Stopping Out / RS003B3
Our 7" dub plate and accompanying video of Stopping Out is (for now) the final development of Simon Kirby, Tommy Perman and Rob St. John's Concrete Antenna project.
One of these was created by Fife-based singer-songwriter King Creosote, who took inspiration from 'Stopping Out', taking the original track's layering of foghorns from North Sea ships and harbours and making subtle melodic changes whilst creating a new narrative.
Much of our Random Spectacular activity is the result of friendships and collaborations, so it seemed natural to ask our friend, the printmaker/illustrator Jonny Hannah (who has previously worked with King Creosote) to make a video to accompany the audio. Jonny created a series of mixed media works which have been edited by animator Cameron Duguid. The results can be seen below.
To celebrate the launch of the film, we've put together a unique package of Random Spectacular artefacts for a charity auction raising funds for the Scottish Fisheries Museum in Anstruther.
We've pressed a handful of one-sided 7" dub plates featuring King Creosote's re-imagining of 'Stopping Out' and just one of these is publicly available, in a sleeve hand-painted by Jonny Hannah. The auction lot will also include a copy of every physical Random Spectacular project produce yet, including our long sold-out Random Spectacular No. 1 and No. 2 journals, one of the 100 original hand-made Score Tae The Toor books.
