SATURDAY’S SCOTTISH SONG : #89 : ERRORS

Adapted from wiki:-

Errors formed as a bedroom electronic-based project in Glasgow 2004 by members Simon Ward, Greg Paterson and Stephen Livingstone, and were signed by Post-Rock band Mogwai to their Rock Action Records imprint who released a limited run 7″ single “Hans Herman” which sold out quickly.

The band followed up their debut with the ‘How Clean is your Acid House? EP in 2006. Following the release of the EP the band recruited former Multiplies and Dananananaykroyd drummer James Hamilton, who had been performing as a live member of the band, to the band as a full-time member. In summer 2007 they supported UK dance band Underworld on a UK tour.

Their debut album Its Not Something But It Is Like Whatever was released on Rock Action records in June 2008 and the band also toured extensively throughout 2008 and 2009. In 2010 they released their second full-length album Come Down With Me on Rock Action records and spent the Spring and Summer touring extensively throughout the UK and Europe before releasing a remix album titled ‘Celebrity Come Down With Me’, featuring remixes of tracks from their previous album by artists including Gold Panda and Ceephax Acid Crew.

In 2011 Errors were invited performers at the South By Southwest festival in March and in the same month released a limited edition 7-inch picture disc single featuring new tracks ‘Magna Encarta’ and ‘Ganymede’. In April/May 2011 Errors embarked upon a tour of the United States and Canada supporting Mogwai. In December 2011 Errors played their last full show with guitarist and founding member Greg Paterson, supporting Mogwai at Glasgow’s Barrowlands (Paterson would later re-join the band onstage at a secret show in their native Glasgow, the band’s only live date during a year-long hiatus in 2013)

In 2012 the three piece Errors released two albums, Have Some Faith in Magic and an eight track mini-album New Relics which was released on a limited edition VHS cassette, and embarked upon an extensive touring schedule of the UK, Europe and North America.

In 2014 the band played their first shows in Japan, supporting fellow Glaswegians Chvrches and playing the Hostess Club Weekender in Tokyo and began work on their fourth full-length studio album “Lease of Life” which was released on 23 March 2015.

They are a band I’ve seen a few times and while enjoyable, I’ve never been persuaded enough to part with hard cash for product although I doI have a couple of their tracks via compilation albums, including this decent enough take on a New Order song:-
