Another Lonely Night

Now this is the late great Jackie Leven. Singer songwriter from Fife who apparently went to school with Gordon Brown. Jackie died in November 2011 and leaves an underappreciated catalogue of songs. I saw Jackie at the Bierkeller in Bristol and aside from enjoying his music was touched by a short conversation with him as I bought a copy of one of his albums from him. A lot of his music is clearly influenced by a life less than easy (heroin addiction + near fatal strangulation/street assault) and alcohol and include characters who may not be very palatable, but there is an amazing beauty to some of the pictures he paints.
