random bands i saw
saw some bands at Barfly after leaing the Tramway. Jack Butler were on first. Actually surprisingly good rock music. Interesting stuff. Even bought the single 'how's this for leverage'.
Then My cousin Lucy's boyfriend jamie's band Cobai were on. Nice enough sonically but all over the place stage wise. They had 4 gutarists and a singer up there all vying for our attention. It was like 5 front men. Oh and note to guitarist. If you're not playing anything in the last song of the set, DON'T wrap a cord about your wrist and head. It's dangerous and merely highlights the fact that you're not doing anything.
The last band were Damien and the regicide very good music and one of them's boyfriend of my mate Natalya (who last time we met i had to TRY and carry to the west end because she had fabulous yet painful shoes on that were falling apart). this band were better than cobai but had completely opposite problems. Where Cobia had been too much ego and too many focus's Damien had no ego or anything for listeners to focus on. Better but still not great.

If you have a band you'd like to add to this community's interests, your own, your mate's or just one you really like, then comment with the bands/dj/mc/personages name (remember they have to be local as in Scottish). Even better would be to put out an entry with info and a web sight to be visited.
Oh and remember to vote as much as you can for Alalmos on the NME chart on mtv2. It's going to be an uphill struggle for them as they're not established yet. It will be a real boost if they get the extra playtime and coverage.
thankyou. Current Mood: full

THIS IS WHAT IT IS
So i bought the Nicensleazy album from behind the bar for £1. And what a well spent one hundred pence. Superb stuff from local bands. I was very surprised at the range of ideas and the their execution. Been listening to it every day since i bought it on saturday.
So here's what is on it:
1. dead fly buchowki hope is treasure
2. cold night song over the peaton
3. multiplies megafist*
4. lucky luke to know is to love
5. the magnificents last gasp of revenge*
6. kain i never look back*
7. ally kerr another winters day
8. errors best nose in paris*
9. fuck-off machette panda*
10.park attack the forgetter
11.uncle john & whitelock 2 fiddy (dub)*
(*) are me personal favourite so far. If you want to buy this cd and live in or around Glasgow, just head to Nicensleazy and ask behind the bar. Tis only a poooond. Oh and if you liove outside of Glasgow and even Scotland, then email your address to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and i shall endeavour to send you your very own album. Because i'm that kind of guy.(easy) It only cost a pound so it's no bother for me to send you a copy. Delivery and packaging are a small price to pay to spread my love-all over your face-.

some new rosy jewels from last night!

shitdisco/flying matchstick men/the new rosy jewels/down the vinyl steps
Unfortunatly missed 'down the tiny steps' and 'new rosy jewels', due to seeing K T Tunstall. Especially wanted to see The jewels who i really enjoy. I haven't seen or heard of the former unfortunatly.
Anyway, was there with me wee brother Tim and ma wee sister Felicity who met us there. We walked in during the matchsticks set, where litty exclaimed!!! that they were really good, as opposed to her former opinion of them not being very good at all, due to her dislike of there album 'the sleeping songztq' which she found too close to a nintendo game for her delicate tastes. Graham Peel (synth/front man/singer) naturally camped it up a class act with his sparkling gold jacket, Becky(synth/frontlady/vocals) epitomised cool with a sly cigerette while playing synth and throw away looks, Mark (drummer) was made fun of by Peel, Gav (base) was beardy,very beardy. And Graham,G force, was on lead guitar. He plays brilliantly but i think is still fitting into the dynamic of the band. He also plays for the brilliant multiplies. The band played brilliantly, Peel's vocals are gettting alot better, and Becky's being given more to chew on vocally...i think. I'm still learning how to take a band and critique them. Their music was really allowed to open up, very strong performances by all, a real edgy rock mentality being let through as opposed to the sometimes spacy feel they could have at times in the past, and on their album 'the sleeping songztq'. The crowd again could have been more supportive as the band has a great dance element wich you can really move to.
Shitdisco on the other hand got alot of support in the dancing department. I've seen them once before at a gig at Nicensleazy's where they also played with the 'new rosy jewels'. The drummer was also fancied by my wee sister. This is the kind of band that you must dance to or you're dead inside. The music isn't as interesting as the matchsticks but they control the audience more. This without the usual chitchat, though personally i enjoy the chitchat.
can't seem to get the multiplies website, the flying matchstick men should know. Photos were taken by Kirsten, queenofthejakes so check out her livejournal in the future for visual representations!
K T Tunstall
Tues 22nd Feb, 2005 King Tuts £6
+ Calvin. Gig sold out.
Went with me wee brother timothy. We saw the end of Calvin's set. I thought they were good, Timothy disagreed. I found them similar to 'Divine Comedy'. But no not as good.
The audience was made up of a lot of middle aged people, which i found quite disconcerting at first, think it's the first gig where the singer was hidden behind a balding head. Oh yes and it was quite surreal in the way that there was some type of diagonal row of very tall men directly inbetween us and the K T Tunstall..annoying as well. K T was brillant. Very humorous and kept the audience on her side very well. Very generous,down to earth, laughing at someone in the audience's comment (which i didn't hear). With her on stage were,as far as i could see from my view point, 3 guys, a base/cello(?) player, key boardist, and drummer. I don't know her songs too well, she definetly played 'other side of the world', 'another place to fall' under the weather' , 'suddenly i see' (which i think she announced as her first single. All in all a great performance. The only fault i found was more with the audience, her music though acoustically led is quite strong in its beats, however the audience never really moved with it. Even the clappy bits(technical term), weren't really followed well enough. They were however very vocal in there appreciation and applause.
We had to leave at 10:45 and missed the encore due to many great Glasgow bands playing down at Subclub.
