Rachel & The Lawn Grower
(Profile views: 1,969)
This is our version of a backlash against the over produced trash in the charts which uses more studio trickery than talent to create 'music' with no actual musicians involved in the process. All you will hear is acoustic instruments, some percussion, a voice and a bit of reverb....if you don't like it go and listen to your Lady Ga Ga CD!. We have CDs available from our website!!!!.
Here's what people say.....
"Rain Again is fu**in awesome" , "What started out as an experiment turned into something wonderful" , "If you take a bit of intricate guitar and add a dash of poetic heart felt singing this is what you get and no one does it better than these two" , "poetic sad music" "Beautifully simple but simply beautiful"
Relaxocalmicallyclassicofolkishlyetherialistic, our influences are life, the universe and everything else....we basically love slow motion rock music and that is reflected in our songs....probably?
Lots of mistakes with some fine songs inbetween
Gigs are weird anyway so just turning up to them is strange enough
I don\'t know about this year but for me(Ian) my current favourite is Fingers & Thumbs by Polly Paulusma, Rachel really likes that one too but she\'ll probably say it\'s the latest Kings Of Leon album
We\'ve supported the amazing Mr. Vinny Peculiar which was fantastic and in November we\'re supporting Julie Collings but apart from those two maybe Polly Paulusma or Emiliana Torrini?....whoever would let us support them.
Neither for Ian(teetotal and always has been!) Cider for Rachel
Glasto obviously because it\'s in a big field in the countryside so Ian could take his moth trap!
Pay someone to fill these things in for me
Lawnsound Music, they\'re just the coolest label in the world not to mention smart and good looking too
I don\'t think we\'re going to be big because we\'re not really what the music industry is looking for, if we can do 4 gigs and 1 or 2 CDs a year that\'s big enough for us
Tizer & pickled onion monster munch for Ian, cake and gin for Rachel
I once threw a window out of a TV does that count?, I also ran into the middle of a crowded fire and shouted \'theatre\' but that\'s another story.
Yes, it\'s got slower, we try to dismiss the trivial so things have evolved into songs that are difficult to sing and near impossible to play
To piss as many people off as possible and keep playing slow songs until Ians back gives out(which won\'t be long now!)
We were introduced by a mutual \'friend\' on myspace
Rachel designs and makes wonderful jewellery as well as working at Derby uni, Ian is a lazy layabout who lives off his rich bitch wife(typical guitarist!!)
I think Rachel has her mum and dad to thank for the Rachel bit and Ian got the Lawn Grower bit from a conversation his wife was having with a neighbour who was admiring their garden....she said \'I do the flowers but Ian\'s the lawn grower\' somehow it just stuck
Because we\'re really good, it wont cost them much, we\'ll probably be supporting someone worth seeing, they can enjoy a game of count the mistakes and Ian has the sexiest guitar in the universe so it\'s worth coming along just to see that!
The covers of our CDs....obviously
