2016 turned out to be a prolific year for Ziggy Campbell with the release of not just a second FOUND album in the space of 9months, but also  the debut Lomond Campbell LP ‘Black River Promise’ just a matter of weeks later.

If you’ve not heard them, both of these albums are more than worthy of your attention but in the meantime, Ziggy looks back on the last 12 months for MPT:

Your Own Music

Your own musical highlight of the year?

Releasing FOUND’s Terra Nova and Lomond Campbell’s Black River Promise on glorious 12” vinyl within months of each other.

Favourite performance of the year?

The one and only performance of FOUND’s Terra Nova album played in a small but packed room at Summerhall, Edinburgh in July.

What’s the one thing that went wrong in 2016 you’d like to fix?

Our first release on Triassic Tusk ‘Screamers, Bangers & Cosmic Synths’ sold out in 10 days.  I wish we’d pressed 4 times the amount.

What you gonna be doing next year?

Releasing another Triassic Tusk compilation as well as putting out records by The Sexual Objects, Withered Hand, Jo Foster & King Creosote.  Maybe I’ll do another record too if there’s any chutzpah left.

Others’ Music

Album of the year?

Swell To Great by Modern Studies

Song of the year?

Everyday by Sacred Paws        

Best gig attended?

Triassic Tusk Halloween party…we gave Withered Hand a bottle of whisky to drink before his performance, then sat back and gleefully watched the chaos unfurl. 

Best discovery in 2016?

Jo Foster
