Ricky began writing Trouble Came Looking as the wheels started to fall off the economy in 2008. Set against a backdrop of global economic recession, the record’s raw, acoustic tales of poverty, displacement and desperation heralded Ross’s starkest and most urgent work but its tales are imbued with the warmth and resilience of human nature.

Ricky described the songs on Trouble Came Looking: “I wanted to tell these people’s stories, to lay them down, without anything getting in the way. The songs are rough round the edges, they’re barely written. I’ve never done that before”.

As the review in The Scotsman said: “The sentiments are bare too, with Ross tackling his subject matter head-on in Woody Guthriesque storytelling mode. As the title suggests, ‘Trouble Came Looking’ has the blues, the 21st-century austerity blues to be precise”.

Deacon Blue are only playing two shows in the UK this year; in August they are performing to many thousands, headlining Party at the Palace in Linlithgow and the other, on September 15th, to 120 people at the Glad Café in Glasgow.

This is a very special opportunity to see the band up close and personal, playing their best-loved songs, acoustically, in an extremely intimate setting. All profits from the show will be donated to the Glad Café’s ‘Raise The Roof’ campaign.

“The Glad Café is very close to our hearts, it’s a place we often go to eat, drink and see music with friends and it needs help to make sure the place is still standing to support new artists. Young artists and their fans need small venues to nurture them and with your help the Glad Café will have a great future.” RR x

Tickets are £100 each, all profits go to the Glad Café ‘Raise The Roof’ campaign and are on sale Tuesday 7th May at 9.00am from https://www.musicglue.com/raisetheroof/.
