The Tubes @ The Art school Glasgow

The Tubes @ The Art school Glasgow This one is always difficult to explain. If you have seen The Tubes live you will know what I am talking about but to try and explain to someone who has no comprehension of the band is very difficult. 40 years into their career and they are incredible live, musically you cannot fault them. Visually they are a dream to watch and to photograph and to add to that you have Fee Waybill’s constant humour and antics. You know you will get costume changes, you know you will get the hits but you also know there will be something new every time. So lets focus on some of the different angles tonight. There were a...

Inme @ The Garage, Glasgow Oct22

Inme @ The Garage, Glasgow

Inme @ The Garage, Glasgow It is great to see that Inme are becoming regular visitors to Glasgow these days. Too many years went by without them and since I caught back up with them about three years ago I have not missed a show. You know you are always in for a great performance and tonight was no exception. Inme brought along Aaron Buchanan and The Cult Classics with them on this tour and I have to say I was more than pleased. That name may not ring any bells but how about if I mention Heaven’s Basement, yeah, I thought that may change things. Many moons ago I packed up my life in Scotland and moved to Peterborough, England(don’t ask...

Echotape live review19 Oct – The Sanctuary, Basingstoke Oct21

Echotape live review19 Oct – The Sanctuary, ...

I have been hearing a lot about the band Echotape over the past few months, with following the band on Facebook and having the drummer on my friends list (both of us meeting whilst working for a pensions company years ago). They have been on many adventures recently – namely a recent record deal in May, a very recent visit to Belgium and The Netherlands; and an upcoming support tour for Graham Candy in NL and Germany notwithstanding. They have also been to festivals in The Netherlands and Russia, so things are really starting to happen for this up-and-coming band; considering they have already hit the charts in NL. The opportunity finally...

Eden’s Curse, Cardinal album launch and review

Eden’s Curse, Cardinal album launch and review I wasn’t expecting tonight to be such a big thing but when you add up all the ingredients you can understand why I had a great night:- 1 It has been a long two years since the brilliant “Symphony Of Sin”. 2 We had Paul Logue and John Clelland here. 3 It was compered by none other than Scottish Legend Tom( I have a book coming out) Russell. 4 We have all of the lovely ladies from the album cover here. 5 We are the first to hear Cardinal in its entirety. The venue is Glasgows Hard rock Cafe and it is very apt with a name steeped in rock legend. We see many familiar faces, we smooze, we have a...

Barb Wire Dolls @ Stereo, Glasgow Oct19

Barb Wire Dolls @ Stereo, Glasgow

  Barb Wire Dolls @ Stereo, Glasgow This one was going to be a new experience for me. I have heard the noise around this band and have friends completely split down the middle on whether the band is good or not. I am never one to make a decision on anyone else’s opinion so I decided that rather than take a side I would go check it out myself. I also found it hard to believe the God that was/is Lemmy could make a mistake as he signed this scruffy, rough and raw band from Greece the moment he saw them live. The evening did not start well, I was suffering from a cold that was not helped along by attending a gig the previous night. To add...

Altered sky Oct18

Altered sky

    Altered Sky @ The Garage, Glasgow This was the big one, Altered Sky took a gamble and booked the main stage at The Garage. It has been a while since they played their home town after a successful tour promoting their brilliant debut album “ Without Wonderland”. Would the gamble pay off? let’s see… But before I get to that(as he draws out the tension) we had some support bands on tonight, four to be precise but due to the early start and me being as sick as a dog(man flu is real people) I missed Beyond Recall and Take Today but everyone was raving about them. My first band of the evening was one I was familiar with. Magik Trik...
