The Pictish Trail
From a static caravan up on the remote isle of Eigg, tucked away within the inner Hebrides of Scotland, Johnny Lynch, aka The Pictish Trail, runs DIY label and collective Lost Map (formerly Fence Records). As well as producing countless mini-albums, EPs and assorted LPs of self-professed ‘wonky-pop’ material under his Pictish Trail moniker, he’s collaborated with a plethora of the greatest songsmiths across these fair lands, including James Yorkston, Malcolm Middleton, King Creosote, KT Tunstall and Adem (with whom he formed electro-pop powerhouse, Silver Columns).
His innovative, genre-defying approach has seen him mentioned in the same breath as his heroes Beck, The Beta Band and Hot Chip. Ibn 2013 he joined the likes of Jarvis Cocker, Franz Ferdinand and Charlotte Gainsbourg as part of the line-up for Beck’s Song Reader live concert in London.
