This amazing initiative was announced on the Fence Records' Beefboard, when King Creosote (Kenny Anderson) invited fans to record his latest album, a live session named
"my first bit of strange in 13 years".
It was a special, magical experience, and totally unlike any other gig I've experienced.

At 12 mid-day, about 30 of us were seated in the tiny AIA hall by the sea-front in Anstruther, the Fife town where Fence Records is based.
KC played two sets, with a short break in between.
He explained there was no need to applaud between songs, so applause is only heard at the end of each set.
The room has near perfect acoustics, and the sound was excellent.

The Fence Halloween weekend celebrations carried on that afternoon.

The video for the single "Coast on By" was partly filmed in the same venue as this recording, and around Anstruther :
