A nice Prog Radar review of The Source from 2017 can be found here
Our hunt for a new Lead Vocalist is over – after many auditions, we are pleased to announce that Martin Haggarty has taken on the role. Martin formed Glasgow “post punk” outfit Lost Weekends in 1983 during a Lou Reed/Iggy Pop phase before joining Abel Ganz for a brief spell and 5 or 6 gigs (1985?). He joined short-lived proggers Masque in 86 before forming Field of Vision 1987. After 4 years, FoV took a hiatus that lasted until 2013, when the 3 core members reformed to write new music, some of which featured on 2015’s Viccissitudes of Life EP, and 2016 single The Dagger. FoV continue to write and record as a studio-only project, but with a desire to return to live music and a surplus of musical ideas, the opportunity to join a couple of former bandmates in Long Earth was too good to resist.
25/1/2018 Long Earth has decided to part company with Neil Mackie. We all wish him well with his future projects and, for 2018, Long Earth will be pushing ahead with producing our second album.
