How do you get over the so-called difficult second album syndrome? Release your second album first. Livingstone Daisies – Michael Barclay, Liz Stringer, and Van & Cal Walker - came together through absolute serendipity. A fortuitous mistake, a happy accident, musical friends, siblings and partners who felt like getting away for a weekend beachside, with the good fortune of a supportive community and generous friends who's offer of a beach shack to stay and record some new music in resulted in a brand new band and two full length albums. (before playing a show). They decided to release their second session as their debut, under the title 'Don’t Know What Happiness Is', and the album was received well by both punters and critics and the band began playing shows and festivals to packed audiences around the country, still surprised but grateful for this unplanned happy accident. And yet.....The first album remained unreleased.... until now! With the help of their fans (The Burlap Underground), the Livingstone Daisies second album “Waiting On The Last Minute” is now ready for release. Livingstone Daisies launch “Waiting On The Last Minute” at the Gasometer Hotel on Saturday August 23 with special guests The Dead Salesman Duo.
