Poor Frisco – ‘Weird In The Suburbs’

The third track to be released from Poor Frisco’s debut album, Sheep’s Clothing, ‘Weird In The Suburbs’ displays their confident ability to create a gritty and intense track, while maintaining an underlying guitar hook and steady vocals. This style continues until around halfway through, where the intensity increases as the vocals are heightened and theContinue reading “Poor Frisco – ‘Weird In The Suburbs’”

A Quiet Night In presents Wild Image (EP launch), Life Model, Poor Frisco at Sleazy’s, 18/3/16

It seems a fair while since A Quiet Night In has put on a show and chatting with the man behind the moniker, David Bell, it indeed has been, still the shows he has put on in the past usually showcase quality upcoming bands so they’re always worth popping along to. Tonight is no differentContinue reading “A Quiet Night In presents Wild Image (EP launch), Life Model, Poor Frisco at Sleazy’s, 18/3/16”

Albums of 2015 (10-1)

20-11  –  10-1  –  Tracks & EPs 10 Hector Bizerk – The Waltz of Modern Psychiatry If there is one thing Hector Bizerk are always on hand to offer, it is something new and for the Glasgow hip-hop act it perhaps doesn’t get more boundary-pushing than writing the soundtrack for Crazy Jane, a play about a 19th-centuryContinue reading “Albums of 2015 (10-1)”

Poor Frisco – Sheep’s Clothing

Poor Frisco hail from East Kilbride, the very same unassuming west of Scotland town that brought us the great Jesus And Mary Chain and these guys are doing a fantastic job of carrying on the noisy pop gauntlet with their latest release, Sheep’s Clothing. Opener ‘Little Baby’ sets the bar very high for the 12Continue reading “Poor Frisco – Sheep’s Clothing”

King Tut’s Summer Nights with Made As Mannequins, Poor Frisco, Broken Boy, Saint Secaire, 23/7/15

I’m in high sprits as I make my way along to King Tut’s for my first of their Summer Nights. Tonight’s show is one of the few that really caught my eye with a few of my current favourites filling the lineup. First up is the only band I don’t recognise but I assume byContinue reading “King Tut’s Summer Nights with Made As Mannequins, Poor Frisco, Broken Boy, Saint Secaire, 23/7/15”

Poor Frisco – ‘Take What You Want’

The new single from alt-rockers Poor Frisco, ‘Take What You Want’, steers more towards an indie-pop sound rather than their usual alternative feel. Vocals from Callum McSorely accompany repetitive guitar and bass that is, at times, accelerated alongside heavier drumming, providing lifting moments from the clean and structured guitar riff played throughout. ‘Take What YouContinue reading “Poor Frisco – ‘Take What You Want’”

Poor Frisco – ‘A Tick Ahead’

Poor Frisco’s new single ‘A Tick Ahead’ provokes a certain kind of sentimentality with its chorus effect guitars, creative structure and passionate, pining lyrics. The track fades in with feedback and introduces a clean guitar sound, which then breaks away to the centralised riff of the song; an upbeat, overdriven and simplistic melody, which holdsContinue reading “Poor Frisco – ‘A Tick Ahead’”

Poor Frisco – Poor Frisco

With the summer of 2014 being now dead and buried under this already freezing autumn, people tend remember those cherished moments spent lying on a beach, margarita in one hand, sunscreen in the other but then the wake-up call is always magnificently brutal. To help with that summery nostalgia Poor Frisco have released four songsContinue reading “Poor Frisco – Poor Frisco”
