Project Ability will be part of the Bluebells album launch!

We are delighted to announce that we will be part of the Bluebells retrospective album launch at Mono on Sunday 21st September!

The band and Monorail have asked Project Ability to provide a backdrop for the stage. Two Project Ability artists have been selected: Lesley Nimmo and Bluebells super fan Doreen Kay, who produced the short animation film Young at Heart as an hommage to the band a few years ago. There will be a little Project Ability shop at the entrance, and since this unmissable event is free, any donations to Project Ability will be greatly appreciated!

Here is what Monorail wrote about the event:

"One of our favourite records of the summer has been The Bluebells retrospective, Exile On Twee Street, Songs From Glasgow 1980-1982. Pre-dating their hit singles, Exile re-connects the group to a world of Postcard, Bill Forsyth and The Hellfire Club, which like Orange Juice's Ostrich Churchyard, is where most of these recordings were made. Glasgow in 1980 was a city under transformation, still rough around the edges, not quite gentrified. Musically things were starting to move on from punk and The Bluebells were right in the drift, eyes on the chance, songs in pocket, an important and friendly presence.

Now back together, and featuring the incredible James Kirk on guitar, we're really excited to present a launch party for the vinyl edition of Exile. The group will be performing many of the songs from the album and some of their hits too. DJs are Jim Lambie and Stephen Pastel. The group will be available to sign records, cds and posters.

8pm sharp.  Free. Unmissable."
