Time waits for no man, so I’d better get on with plugging the next Scottish Fiction Presents: Aye Tunes Vs Peenko shindig eh?
I’ve been left in charge for July, so you get a very loud line up of bands I like, a bit more like my solo efforts than the group ones so far.
Mad Nurse have only made a brief appearance on the blog before in Friday Freebies, ages ago. You can still get hold of a free EP from them here, and I also fully encourage spending a couple of quid on their recently released The Rip EP here. They should be getting things off to a suitably raucous start.
The Cherry Wave have been pleasing my ears for about a year now, since the release of their first self titled EP. Both that and their second EP, Blush, released earlier this year can be yours over here. I asked them to play mostly because I like them lots, but also in part because they’ve been causing trouble recently, and I always enjoy that kind of thing. Wear your best shoes for them, to enhance your gazing fun.
I asked Cleavers to do a gig for me a full year ago, having decided they were my favourite new band in ages. They couldn’t do it then, but this July they can, and although they aren’t so new anymore, they are still one of my favourite bands in the country. They also cost me a decent chunk of cash, since they seem to put out something new for me to buy with alarming regularity. Noisy, brash, fast, but packed with melodies, I’m really delighted to finally be putting Cleavers on. If we ask them nicely they may even bring pyrotechnics.
There’s loads of stuff available over here, a lot of it can be had for free, but as the band were recently robbed in London I’ll urge you to pay for the music if you like it and have a few extra quid, they’d really appreciate the cash.
The gig takes place at The Art School on Sauchiehall Street in Glasgow on Saturday July 20th, probably starting about 8. Entry will cost you a mere six pounds.
BUT if you buy a ticket in advance this week, you can get in for just £4. Bargain, eh? Tickets are available here. After Saturday the price goes up again, so act fast for big savings now, as people say in annoying adverts.
