With the news in that Gerry Cinnamon is already writing his second album, we take a look back at our favourite Scottish singer-songwriter’s amazing debut album and count down 6 Reasons Why Erratic Cinematic is Life.
1. The influences on the record are timeless
When you kick back and listen to Erratic Cinematic you can hear the legendary vibes of Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd and Otis Redding to name a few. Gerry’s influences make the album a timeless classic that’s had us listening to it on repeat.
2. The lyrics are next level
Like Alex Turner, Gerry Cinnamon’s lyrics are so relatable that they sound like they were written just for you. From the lovestruck lines of ‘Belter’ to choosing happiness over money on ‘Fortune Favours’, Gerry has got all of the feels covered on Erratic Cinematic.
3. It’s an album that’s all down to one man
Erratic Cinematic is down to just one person, Gerry. He wrote, self-produced and self-released the album with no record label backing and rocketed to the top of the iTunes album charts with little more than a social media post – top lad.
4. That accent
Gerry Cinnamon’s Castlemilk twang is unmistakable and it’s what makes Erratic Cinematic so unique. Start practising your best Glaswegian accent now to sing along with Gerry to scream out “she is a belllllteeerrrrr” at Community ’19.
5. ‘Lullaby’ is the ultimate singalong anthem.
‘Sometimes’ and ‘Belter’ are proper anthems, but ‘Lullaby’ is our go to track. It’s going to sound immense live when the rays shining down on Finny P.

6. It’s an indie rock classic
Erratic Cinematic is 9 tracks and 31 minutes of pure unadulterated indie rock. From the opener beats of ‘Sometimes’ to the closing strummed acoustics of ‘War TV’, it’s big chorus indie rock at it’s best and we can’t get enough.
