Poor Things, Pinact, SHARPTOOTH, Halfrican at The Old Hairdressers, 27/6/15

With the likes of DF Concerts monopolising the Glasgow concert scene and even Bloc getting a lick of paint, those who like their gigs rough and ready are being pushed ever further underground.

Poor Things, Blood Indians at Broadcast, 12/9/14

Due to work commitments I arrive at Broadcast too late for Lylo (sorry guys) but with just enough time to see Blood Indians take the stage. The lilting dual vocals of the girls that sing in the band are certainly complimentary to the waves of clean and silvery tones they display during the majority ofContinue reading “Poor Things, Blood Indians at Broadcast, 12/9/14”

Poor Things – Poor Things [Saraseto]

Poor Things’ self-titled album is a clear step in the right direction. Single ‘1998’ acts as a good introduction; offering an upbeat tempo with guitar led melodies with crashing drums and rebel lyrics. With a clear 90’s punk influence in the stroppy droning tones of the vocals and tumbling layered melodies, it is no surprise thatContinue reading “Poor Things – Poor Things [Saraseto]”
