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)”

Prehistoric Friends (album launch), eagleowl at The Hug and Pint, 23/10/15

After our struggle to find somewhere to eat in the West End on a Friday night, we arrive at The Hug and Pint slightly later than originally planned therefore sadly missing Dave Frazer and only catching the end of eagleowl’s set.

You’d be forgiven for having only just having latched on to Mutual Benefit, it’s very unlikely his music reached much of Glasgow before latest album Love’s Crushing Diamond had a mini explosion causing it to be one of, it not the biggest success of the bandcamp releasing generation. Tonight it’s the quaint open and franklyContinue reading “Mutual Benefit, Seoul, Prehistoric Friends at Mono, 21/5/14”
