Aye Tunes Vs Peenko III


No one ever stops at two, you need to have at least a trilogy, don’t you?

With that in mind Peenko and myself have been working for a while on the third AVP gig which we can finally announce. We’ll be the Back To The Future, Toy Story, Evil Dead and Friday series, not The Matrix, MVP: Most Valuable Primate, Beverly Hills Cop or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
We promise no Ewoks and no Sophia Coppola. All bands will be appearing in full definition 3D though, unless you only have one eye.
Never ones to outstay our welcome (shh) we’ve upped sticks again, shifting to downstairs at The Classic Grand this time round, so we are nice and handy for the train station and Pizza Hut. If you saw me before either of the previous gigs you might have noticed a lot of blind panic, well The Classic Grand is a much bigger venue than The Captain’s Rest or The 13th Note were, so expect my look of panic to be significantly increased too. But enough about me shitting myself, and more about the fools bands we’ve somehow managed to get to play for us.
The Seventeenth Century are simply a band I can’t see myself getting bored of watching. Not only do they have magnificent songs, but also a level of on stage energy and chemistry that has to be seen to be believed. Don’t just take my word for it, listen to John Robb, who said “Their sound is utterly original and the band is pure genius”
Come On Gang! are an Edinburgh based three piece with a line of catchy melodies that embed themselves in your head and refuse to leave for some time. They also have a singing female drummer which not only makes them stand out from the crowd, but shows that at both Peenko and Aye Tunes we like both females and people from Edinburgh. Fair warning – they recently made a man dance so hard he tore his trousers.
I Build Collapsible Mountains is another Edinburgh dweller. This mysterious singer songwriter is on the verge of releasing his debut mini album A Month of Lost Memories (out on October 13th on Peenko Records. Hang on…) and will be revealing his true face for us. Well, IBCM is really Luke Joyce, formerly of The Gothenburg Address and gifted photographer. But shh, don’t tell anyone.
We try to put together a line up that is a bit different from the usual, no booking support bands that sound a bit like the headliners but not quite as good, which we’ve hopefully accomplished. All three bring something different to the table, and your ears, all we ask is that you bring the ears.
Aye Tunes Vs Peenko 3 takes place on the Fifth of November – if only there was some little rhyme you could use to stop yourself from forgetting the date – at The Classic Grand in Glasgow.
Tickets cost £6 and are available from Tickets Scotland, TicketWeb, Peenko, or by harassing either me or Lloyd by email or in person. If either of us bump into you over the next month or so we will try and sell you a ticket, so be warned.
