ACROSS THE BROAD ATLANTIC

THE two worlds of American and Scottish power pop are set to collide in a frenzy of sweet harmonies and jangly guitar chords on a forthcoming UK tour.
Willie Campbell, former frontman of Astrid and collaborator on two Reindeer Section albums, and Braden Blake, frontman of Seattle popsters Super Deluxe, will be hitting intimate venues in London, Manchester, Nottingham and Liverpool on their week-long jaunt round the country.
Willie may have waved goodbye to his Astrid cohorts, but his new material shows no indication that he has forgotten his pop roots.
After a lengthy hiatus Braden is back recording with Super Deluxe and is also promoting his debut UK solo release, “Good Enough” (7”Vinyl single) taken from “A Year in Pajamas”, an album full of heart-braking acoustic laments.
The guys will be revisiting and reinterpreting songs from their glittering back catalogue as well as treating fans to new and unreleased tracks.
The tour takes in …

Excellent top 10 but it shows your age. You must be young.
