Electric Honey, the hugely respected college-run record label which this year celebrates its 25th Anniversary, has helped launch a brand new album from emerging Glasgow talent, Pronto Mama.
The immensely popular band’s first album, ‘Any Joy’, featuring their impressive single ‘Arabesque’, was officially launched at Glasgow Kelvin College’s West Campus last week to an enthusiastic audience of college students, staff and their ever-growing following of fans and friends. After five years of writing, gigging and recording, the six-piece are delighted to have produced this album of ‘songs about: life, death, women and wine’.
Despite being a man-down on this occasion, the band stylishly romped their way through an exciting set and provided a confident and delicious taster of the whole incredible album.
Glasgow Kelvin students from Film & TV Production and Photography were on hand to record the event and a deluge of amazing merchandising was available courtesy of Glasgow Kelvin’s transnational visitors from France.
A talented group of creative students from Lycee de la Communication St Geraud in Aurillac, France, have been working with the band and creative industries students and staff to produce fabulous prints and screen-printed t-shirts to support the launch of ‘Any Joy’ and to publicise the band.
To mark the 25th anniversary of the label, Electric Honey organised an in-house competition to design a logo around Electric Honey 25. Winning entrant, Kyle Graham, and runner-up, Slaw Paszek, were awarded their well-deserved prizes at the launch. They’re seen here with lecturer, Ken McCluskey and Glasgow Kelvin College Principal Alan Sherry.
The album launch provided an ideal opportunity for different vocational areas in the College to bring their talents together and collaborate to ensure the success of the event and to support the band.
Currently touring the album across the UK, Pronto Mama are scheduled to play The Art School in Glasgow on Friday 26th May 2017.Â More info is available at https://www.facebook.com/prontomama/
