about

Alan Davidson (aka Kitchen Cynics) surely seals his laureateship of the city of Aberdeen with the release of his new album Apardion, a loving homage to the city which made him. Taking its title from the old Norse name for the settlement at the mouth of the Don, Apardion offers a series of song-form episodes from the history of the sophisticated city of glittering granite – a turbulent and eventful history indeed. Listeners are led from the times of the early hunter-gatherers, through a mediaeval turmoil of fire, plague, skirmish and diablerie, to the contemporary glory of that much-loved Victorian thoroughfare, Union Street, all in inimitable Kitchen Cynics style. Apardion a successful blend of the aesthetically appealing and the informative – edutainment, if you will – its gothic psych-folk arrangements framing oft-sombre narratives leavened by Alan's dry and earthy Doric wit. Highly recommended for all music lovers, Aberdonian or otherwise!
