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 ››

Electric Fields 2016, Day One, 26/7/16

Back down in Dumfries for another Electric Fields and this year the festival has seen a whole load of new investment, resulting in a stronger, less Scottish oriented line up, an extra day of music, larger stages, better food and an all round bigger feel. And it all seems to pay off, at less than £100 … Continue Reading ››

Ones to look out for at Electric Fields 2016

Electric Fields might well be the most exciting festival north of the border this year, with a line up that draws huge talent from both the local pool and further afield and without compromising in talent have drawn together the most attractive line up we’ve seen in a while. Last year Electric Fields was a real … Continue Reading ››

Sweaty Palms – ‘Love Me / Pretty Poor’ [Black Sheep]

Glasgow’s Sweaty Palms drop ‘Love Me / Pretty Poor’ on Black Sheep Records, and run-of-the-mill garage rock this ain’t. The punchy verse on ‘Love Me’ blends the staccato guitar of Iggy’s ‘Passenger’ with the ghoulish camp of The Cramps; so far, so promising. Then the chorus arrives like a mighty wave against the hull of our sonic … Continue Reading ››

T in the Park, 10/7/16

Day three arrives and there’s no reprieve on the weather, meaning not only is the arena the muddiest I can remember attending, but that we’re a good half hour late on the gates as flooding has caused health and safety concerns. These precautions seem more than granted, but unfortunately it does mean I only get to … Continue Reading ››

Stag and Dagger (Part Two), 1/5/16

In the previous coverage of Stag and Dagger our reviewer, Adam Turner-Heffer, spoke of the fun of people’s entirely different experiences of the festival. Intriguingly enough mine and Adam’s days overlap in only two places, one being rejecting the daunting queue for We Were Promised Jetpacks and the other being the early in the day slot … Continue Reading ››

Fuzzkill <3 U – Valentine’s All Dayer featuring Peace and Love Barbershop Muhammad Ali, Breakfast MUFF, Fruit Tones, Halfrican, Sweaty Palms at Sleazy’s, 13/2/16

The first volume of Under The Covers was one of my favourite releases of last year, a trope of bands recorded their takes on, some classic and some relatively unheard, love songs for Fuzzkill Records Valentine’s Day compilation, so it was with great anticipation that I turned up the launch of the second edition of … Continue Reading ››

Fuzzkill presents Sweaty Palms (EP launch), BIN MEN, The Shithawks, Dune Witch Trails at 13th Note, 24/9/15

Tonight is yet another launch from ravechild favourites the super prolific Fuzzkill Records, and another outstanding bill choked with sunshine begging, fuzzed up lo-fi pop tunes with a little surprise in the middle and a slightly darker twist at the end. Opening proceedings is the sparky melodies and charming pop energy of Dune Witch Trails, who … Continue Reading ››
