More Eden

Thanks to Adam for the above atmospheric picture from Eden. Another review of the Eden show, this time from never enough notes who seemed to enjoy the show abit more than the this is Cornwall reviewer did..

Doves have some hard work to do: When the gig was announced Mumford & Sons were still emerging and Doves, with their solid following and previous storming set at the Eden Sessions in 2002, were a steadfast finishing band. And although the crowd is still up for it when they take the stage, it is clear that many are Doves virgins.

The band grab the audience well to start; Jimi Goodwin’s memorable voice and the moody and atmospheric music is the perfect soundtrack for the sun setting over the stunning Eden Project scenery. The band have worked hard on this ‘greatest hits’ tour and put on a good show with dramatic visuals including some interesting videos, my favourite being the ‘hoodies’ filmed for Black and White Town. The band relies heavily on the crowd being right there with them and affectionately coining the audience ‘Edeonions’, Goodwin manages to gain friends in most of them, especially when he offers to pay any council fines if the sound techs cranked up the volume.

A few of you have wrote in asking about the status of the Eden download. Latest from the Doves Live Store..

We are expecting final approval from the band very shortly, as soon as we have it we will ship the CD’s and downloads.

Finally, work has started on the Echoes In The Alleyway microsite. Expect a full launch sometime late August ready for the album to be made available at the site early October. I have already received 9 tracks for the album so far, the quality is fantastic. Some really talented artists involved. I’m sure you will enjoy their take on some of your favourite Doves tunes. Tracks not dared to be covered yet include.. The Fear, Pounding & Words.

02 Academy Glasgow


Once again Glasgow did not disappoint. Of the four shows I caught on the tour, this was by far the best of the lot. Up their with one of the best Doves shows I’ve seen. Both band and crowd were brilliant. An unscheduled performance of Spaceface topped the night off. Cherry Ghost earlier opened playing all new songs to an appreciative audience.

Hot Press Interview & Bestival

doves at Bestival

Short recap of doves at Bestival found at strangeglue.

Performances of their much-admired tracks “Black And White Town” and “Kingdom Of Rust”. bought the band a lot of favour from the crowd as the sun began to wane on the sky. It’s good to know that the trio, who celebrate their 25th anniversary next year, have still got it. Pay heed MGMT.

Thanks to Brian, who let me know that a doves interview is featured in the current issue of Hot Press. Anyone able to send me a scan so I can post it for all to see?
