The story so far...Little Pebble began his days back in 2004, a visit to Anstruther in March of that year was to provide inspiration for the name, the theme and the songs! The first festival by Fife label Fence Records took place and while standing in the Erskine Hall nursing a full bottle of vin rouge, Alan (aka Little Pebble) realised very quickly what was happening here and instantly was hooked and wanted to be involved from that day on. For the next 7 years Alan assisted at festivals and live events arranged by Fence, offering his mobile PA system and passion to deliver a pleasant sound experience for all. Lucky enough to perform at many of the events, the opening music session on a Saturday was always a pleasure to do. Usually a good drink had been accomplished on the Friday night, everyone excited to be in Ainster and meeting their festival buddies again, at the time the mellow tones of the Little Pebble set was well suited to ease the joyous hangover. The sheer variety of acts that made up The Fence Collective allowed for experimentation and you were encouraged to create new alter-ego's. Come In Tokyo was a break away from the acoustic arena, achieving success very early with vinyl releases on Nekkid Rekkids/Fence/De-fence, national radio play and a 9 date Carling Academy tour supporting The Aliens. AC Hum a collaborative project with Iona Marshall was again something different and wonderfully strange. Road to Tokyo involved dressing up and being rude, always fun to do.
Well it's full circle again and time taken to try out differing styles of performance and writing, Little Pebble appears again on The Oates Field rosta releases the 6th Album named Bolder. A Brighter Place written in a positive light coming out of a dark 2013 when Alan became very ill with Ulcerative Colitis, a vicious Inflammatory Bowel Disease. The Lights in Here are in Stereo describing the experience of hospital stay and the fight required to get yourself well and out of there. Not sure what 2015 holds, a new year song and an idea for Valentines Day, perhaps there will be a monthly song and a 12 track album release in January 2016!? Watch this space.
