We had an awesome time at XpoNorth! Thanks to everyone who stopped by the trade stand, we sure met a lot of awesome folks! And thanks to XpoNorth for having us again this year, we really appreciate having a space to showcase the label and our artists.

Additional thanks goes to XpoNorth Live for giving Lindsay Llewellyn - artist a slot on their stage when another artist dropped out last minute. Not expecting to perform at XpoNorth this year, Lindsay didn’t bring a guitar, but she managed to find a baby sized guitar and roped The Ramisco Maki Maki Rocking Horse into performing ‘Lights Out’ with her. Watch the performance at https://youtu.be/mJLtFHHBAdE

Special thanks goes to Rob Ellen of The House Concert European Hub for smuggling both Lindsay Llewellyn - artist and The Ramisco Maki Maki Rocking Horse onto The Medicine Show Radio Moose Mobile for an interview and a mini session. Take a peek at https://youtu.be/yDfwO2tMpGI

Most importantly thank you to everyone who helped support the artists and the label by buying a record or two. You are the awesome sauce!

XpoNorth!

We’ll be at XpoNorth next week (June 7th) with The Ramisco Maki Maki Rocking Horse and Lindsay Llewellyn. If you want to have a chat, just stop by our trade stand at Eden Court.

Pick up your FREE mixtape ‘14 Years of Groucho’ from our trade stand at XpoNorth in Inverness tomorrow.

The mixtape spans the entire 14 years of Planet Groucho Records releases featuring: The Kazoo Funk Orchestra, Lindsay Llewellyn - artist, Oak Hero, El Jugador, and The Ramisco Maki Maki Rocking Horse.

We’ll also have The Ramisco Maki Maki Rocking Horse’s new limited edition 7", some CDs, a few cassettes, scratch cards, and some wares from friends of the Groucho: Spring Break, Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5 / Yellow Movement.

You’ll find us on the first floor of Eden Court Theatre. Feel free to stop by and introduce yourselves.

And don’t forget, The Ramisco Maki Maki Rocking Horse is performing at the pentahotels on Thursday night at 11pm. He doesn’t play live very often, so this is a showcase not to be missed, he’s even built a special one-man-band setup and some kind of hand-holding-audio-emitting-do-dah that he says will teleport the audience through sound.

Event page: The Ramisco Maki Maki Rocking Horse - XpoNorth Showcase

He will also be doing a short performance for XpoNorth Live on Thursday around 1pm at Eden Court Theatre and a recording session on the The Buzz Project bus parked outside Eden Court Theatre at 9:30am.

Now, go pop all that into your collective diaries, file-o-faxes, or whatever and I’ll see you all at XpoNorth! Safe travels!
