After years ‘in the trenches of music journalism’, Keenan was offered a deal by Faber & Faber for what would become his debut novel, 2017’s This Is Memorial Device. It’s an explosive, hallucinatory portrait of a fictional post-punk band in 80’s Airdrie, a book so feverishly well received it is currently in production as a TV series. Such was the anticipation surrounding the follow-up that even prior to its publication there were already discussions under way about adapting For The Good Times for the big screen, and little wonder, considering its aforementioned grittily filmic quality.

For Convenanza 2019, David Keenan will be in conversation with Andrew in one of the castle’s towers, which has never been open to the public before. He will also offer Tarot readings and may even play a DJ set!
