Lightships; the project of Teenage Fanclub singer, songwriter and bassist, Gerard Love together with a cast of Glasgow-based friends Dave McGowan (guitar, Teenage Fanclub), Brendan O'Hare (drums, from the first incarnation of Teenage Fanclub), Tom Crossley (flute, International Airport and The Pastels) and Bob Kildea (bass, Belle & Sebastian).

In recent times, Gerard has been very much part of The Pastels, who operate occasional Domino imprint, Geographic.

Lightships’ debut album Electric Cables was released in April this year. An album of tender, observational songs played with an invigorating and easy sense of purpose; the sound of friends enjoying one another’s company and allowing ideas and experiments to flourish.
