2018 marks the 10th anniversary of the first Meursault record, ‘Pissing on Bonfires/Kissing With Tongues’. To mark the occasion, the band are going to play the album and the ‘Nothing Broke’ EP in their entirety.
While songwriter Neil Pennycook is not usually one for birthday celebrations, the landscape of Meursault (as a project) has changed so drastically over the years he thought it’d be interesting to play these songs and find out what they sounded like through the filter of fresh context.
Neil will be joined onstage by some familiar faces and special guests. Join us as we celebrate with one of Edinburgh’s favourite homegrown acts of the last decade.
Support comes from Edinburgh’s Eagleowl.

Liima was born as much of breaking old habits as building new habits, and their second album, ‘1982’, provides a masterclass in pushing beyond one’s established comfort zones. See them live when they return to Summerhall’s Dissection Room.
Three of the country’s most intriguing, exciting artists come together as Out Lines to release Conflats, a gorgeous set of songs inspired by stories of hardship and sorrow, redemption and hope.
