The duo – guitarist Rachel Aggs and drummer Eilidh Rogers – released their debut album, Strike A Match to widespread acclaim in 2017, culminating with it winning Scottish Album […]
When I say “people”, I mean Collapse Board readers. But that’s OK, you’re one of them. When I say “Collapse Board readers”, I mean a handful of Collapse Board readers. But that’s OK, you may well be one of them. The way it works is that a week or so back, I compiled a virtual […]
