“Lingus Gordon has had his ears tuned to the song mining activities of Fife, and to a small, arctic-cacti county in Siberia twinned with Clackmannanshire, since 1995, and for this reason has probably missed out on a few “happenings” closer to home. Like the Glasgow “goldrush” of the late nineties? Don’t know how it panned out, but their drummist, a Klondyke veteran, took his darling clementine into the bedroom, and in there recorded, on glorious a-dat, a half hour collection of 22 carat nuggets. Now the “Immigrant” has already grabbed the Domino Co. prospector’s approval, and if you ain’t quick off the mark, the trail out West will be well worn, dusty and dry, and the fair city of Glesga’ full of lawmen, cowboys and whiskey-addled whores. A first, i’m sure.” Lingus Gordon, 2002
Graeme McNab has been making music as Immigrant since 2001, recording three albums and a Picket Fence for Fence Records between 2002 and 2004. Love’s The Only Thing That Matters, a mini-album of demos recorded in 2005, was released on Chaffinch Records in the summer of 2008.
In 2006, he made the short documentary, Michael and Tong Len, a tribute to Michael Blakey, an English charity worker murdered in Dharamsala, North India. In 2007, he filmed the feature-length Year Of The Underdog, which documented the escalating wave of exiled-Tibetan protest in the run-up to the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Returning to music in 2008, Immigrant recorded two new albums, Queen Of Angels and Red River. Another album, Heart Leaps and Women Folk was released in 2009. November 2010 saw the release of two new albums, Jao and So Pachinko.
Immigrant is currently working on a new album for release in 2011.
