Vashti Bunyan Australian Tour announced




Vashti's story begins in the mid-60s, when she was discovered by Rolling Stones guru Andrew Loog Oldham, signed to Decca & recorded a single penned by Jagger/Richards.

  

After some years in the wilderness, in November '69 Vashti recorded the Just Another Diamond Day album with Joe Boyd & members of the Incredible String Band & Fairport Convention in London. Upon it's release Vashti left the city again, moving to Scotland. The album, over the years, accrued a cultish currency as a lost English classic.

  

Fast forward to the late 90's & Vashti had become aware of this interest in the album. After tracking down the masters, Just Another Diamond Day was re-released. A host of young, new admirers emerged citing her influence, & Vashti had soon recorded with the likes of Piano Magic, The Cocteau Twins, Simon Raymonde, Devendra Banhart & Animal Collective. She then hooked up with the prestigious FatCat record label & recorded Lookaftering, a beautiful, rich, stirring & fully realised album in it's own right.
