Scribbler to play first show in Dartmouth, new LP in the works

repost from the coast

"Craig Currie has a pretty busy weekend coming up. The weirdo/noise musician is releasing a tape under his Chief Thundercloud moniker in a joint event with GIGAS (the psych/drone project of Nick Iwaskow) and opener Cailean Lewis this Friday at Lost and Found (6pm, free.) The tape, June Street, was produced this past summer specifically for the Scotch Tapes label and runs 60 minutes. Currie recorded a side of originals and a side of covers: “I cover some local bands (Omma Cobba, the Free Mansons) and some
classic bands (CCR, Lynyrd Skynrd, Charles Manson),” he says in an email. On Friday night, Currie’s band Scribbler will also be emerging for their first show in Dartmouth at Jacob’s Lounge, with the Whiskey Kisses, GIGAS, Basil and the Scoop Outs. He says they’re working on a “proper album,” which is music to my ears." _Alison Lang
