Avalanche @ St Mary’s Street

Avalanche St Mary's StreetNew location – 21, St Mary’s Street, Edinburgh
Never fear while we leave the Tron for a while after Sunday due to the Jazz + Fringe Festivals we reappear just down the road at St Mary’s Street.
This is a new project, not just a pop up while we wait to return to the Tron in September.
We’ll occupy a large space at the back of the shop next to Carson Clark Gallery. Initially you won’t notice any difference from the Tron but by August ..
Will say more once we’re settled in as currently very much a work in progress but expect to see some old and new friends !

In the All-Night Café competition

In the All-Night Cafex

Thanks to the very generous people at Little, Brown Book and Mute we are able to offer a fantastic selection of goodies relating to the Stuard David book on the formative years of Belle & Sebastian (actually the blurb says Scottish indie sensation Belle & Sebastian) “In the All-Night Cafe”.

For the winner

Signed hardback

Signed cover poster

Exclusive tote bag

Looper 5CD box set “These Things” + badge 

Signed sleeve notes 

For 3 runners-up

A signed hardback copy of the book

As I’ve said before there will be none of this follow. like or retweet nonsense but proper questions. There is only one problem I myself do not know the answer to the question ! So here it is –

What letter was hidden in Avalanche in the Belle & Sebastian treasure hunt many, many years ago and what word was it part of  ?

Answers should be accompanied by a convincing argument as to why the answer is correct.

Some may say this favours the older, Edinburgh based Belle & Sebastian fan so here are two easier questions. Answer both for a chance to win the signed book and of course the winners bag of goodies should nobody come up with a valid answer for the letter and word.

1. Where did Belle & Sebastian get their name from ?

2. Which of the band’s albums is Avalanche’s best selling album of all time from a Scottish band ?
