Live review: Summer Nights 2012 featuring Minor Delilah, Seed, The NK Jays, John Wean at Tut’s, 14/7/12

Minor Delilah, a cheesy 'alternative' 4-piece from Lanarkshire who cite 'everything' as their musical influences, sound just like every other generic Scottish band that's doing the rounds just now. Lead singer Nick Scroggie unfortunately doesn't exactly have 'frontman' written all over him, and the performance reminds … Continue Reading ››

Live review: Summer Nights 2012 featuring Brazil Exists, Lost City Soul, The Little Kicks, Pronto Mama at Tut’s, 12/7/12

Summer Nights 2012 kicks off tonight, promising 60 of the best new artists and bands in Scotland over 14 consecutive nights.

As a result, there is a real nice atmosphere to the night (the weather couldn't … Continue Reading ››

Live review: Rachel Sermanni, Beerjacket, Randolph’s Leap at Oran Mor, 11/05/12

You'd be forgiven for thinking that on a Friday night in Glasgow you could be dealing with a tough crowd. Potentially rowdy, almost certainly intoxicated, Friday night gigs can be a frustrating show for an act best heard in needle-dropping silence. Something about Rachel Sermanni's fans … Continue Reading ››

Live review: The OK Social Club, Echofela, Young Aviators, Bryan McLeish at Stairway, 1/5/12

It take's a combination of ingredients to make the perfect gig and unfortunately tonight hasn't quite got them all in the right places. A relatively new venue in Glasgow, Stairway has yet to find it's scene, though with the shape of the underground spot it's worth … Continue Reading ››
