Diamonds in the Mud
About this deal
In the meantime, he is releasing a further taste of the new live album that relives how he closed his UK summer dates for 2022 - in epic style in front of 100,000 people at Scotland’s national football stadium on July 16 and 17th. The people we were truly in awe of were the low-paid lifesavers, so much so that we stood outside our homes every Thursday to applaud them. With 36 taps there’s plenty for the craft beer connoisseur, alongside a variety of other drinks from coffee to cocktails. Drawing on his two hit albums with songs that generate a legendary live experience the live album includes ‘Dark Days’, ‘Sun Queen’, ‘Ghost’, ‘Where We’re Going’ and platinum-certified singles ‘Sometimes’ and ‘Belter’ It also features the first flavour of new music, with previously unreleased track ‘Sacred’, a stunning tribute to his hero Billy Connolly with his own rendition of ‘I Wish I Was in Glasgow’, and fan favourite ‘Discoland’.
Diamonds In The Mud is a favourite from his debut album, Erratic Cinematic - a song about the characters he encountered growing up in Glasgow, an ode to the people who make it all worthwhile, "Ive been all around the world, But, theres nowhere compares to my hometown," sings Gerry, "No the best place, but theres diamonds in the mud. We create out of the ordinary flavour journeys to provoke a new sense of adventure around the world.Played it all over the world and folk sing it about their own hometown about the mad characters they know and love.
Gerry made history as the first independent act and indeed the first Scot to sell out multiple nights at the national stadium. Despite acknowledging that some aspects might be superficial or pretentious, there is an underlying sense of unity and resilience among the people. The choruses emphasize the importance of the artist's upbringing and the strong connection to the Southside of Glasgow. The continuing ascent of Gerry Cinnamon began with a self-released debut album (2017’s ‘Erratic Cinematic’, which has since gone Platinum). Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.
He also headlined at Swansea’s Singleton Park, the second biggest show ever held in the Welsh city, and set the record as the first artist to sell out three headline shows at the Belsonic, Belfast, playing to over 60,000 fans.
The lyrics depict a sense of pride and nostalgia for the artist's hometown despite its flaws and challenges. The colours of the stripes represent the root note of each chord and the width represents the comparative duration of each note.
Says Gerry, "A tune about growing up in my hometown with a wee mention of some of the characters Ive met and loved along the way. One of his best tunes he’s ever done, BRILLIANT ❤️🤍💙🇬🇧👍 hope the Celtic are counting, only 6 more games tae win and the tims 10 in a row party is blowin rite oot the water. Gerrys gigs have become folklore – joyous mass fan singalongs inspiring devotion and a dedicated following that has swelled, via word-of-mouth, to global proportions.
These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them.
As the nation went into lockdown to fight a killer pandemic our view of what constituted a hero changed. That, perhaps, if children in state schools were taught about the achievements of those from the same class as them they would have a fraction of the confidence enjoyed by public school pupils and realise that they too have the capability to change the world.
