Tenement Trail, 8/10/16

My Tenement Trail starts in the Sleazy’s basement, following a visit to Love Music for a caringly delivered in-store from Edinburgh’s booming charmer Mt. Doubt, who airs a few new tracks which sound as cosy as any of his previous material despite singer Leo Bargery forgetting the words of one of said songs. Still, his disgusted … Continue Reading ››

West End Festival All Dayer at Oran Mor, 19/6/16

So it’s another dad day and another all dayer at Oran Mor as part of the West End Festival, and while the line up today may not be quite as dad friendly as last year’s fare there is a host of local talent at various stages of their musical development on offer. Continue Reading ››

Sauchiehall Street on the day of Tenement TV’s annual Tenement Trail is always packed with musicians and gig goers alike, with an unashamed buzz in the atmosphere. Often regarded as Glasgow’s best music festival, I start a promising day at Broadcast to see the bluesy folk styling’s of Dundonian band Sinderins. They kick their set off to … Continue Reading ››

Electric Fields, 29/8/15

The journey down to Electric Fields begins post 9am and a ‘Happy Bus’ from Buchanan Bus Station; how anyone can muster up the energy to be “happy” at this time in the morning is beyond me and the atmosphere on the bus is as you’d expect from bed missing music lovers with not to many … Continue Reading ››

Three Blind Wolves, Pronto Mama at The Hug and Pint, 18/7/15

This must be one of the most exciting line-ups in Glasgow at the minute. Pronto Mama has two EPs under their collective belt now, and with tonight’s performance we can only a hope an album is in the offing. You’ve seen lots of it before; the skanking, the brass, the unadulterated Glaswegian vocals, but tonight there are … Continue Reading ››

Hector Bizerk, Pronto Mama, Bella and the Bear at Tut’s, 6/6/15

For reasons that more or less amount to me not being competent enough to find a working cash machine near King Tut’s, I miss a lot of Bella and The Bear’s opening set, but it’s clear when I eventually arrive at the venue that the already bustling crowd adore what they’re being treated to: an … Continue Reading ››
