Stag & Dagger, 30/4/17

Perhaps the most highly anticipated annual event on Glasgow’s musical calendar, Stag & Dagger heralds in the start of the festival season and once again floods Sauchiehall Street’s venues with an array of excellent talent. Over the years, the festival has put on up-and-coming acts in intimate venues before they have exploded, with the likesContinue reading “Stag & Dagger, 30/4/17”

Shredd – ‘Cobra’ [Fuzzkill]

Shredd’s new single ‘Cobra’ boots the door down with the same tenacity, enthusiasm and power that the world is coming to expect from them – or should be. A slightly more directed effort than their other material and formulated with a bit more structure, ‘Cobra’ is the next hit in their habit of releasing fast,Continue reading “Shredd – ‘Cobra’ [Fuzzkill]”

FUZZKILL presents Shredd (single launch), Fruit Tones (EP launch), Breakfast MUFF, Savage Mansion at The Old Hairdressers, 8/4/17

Savage Mansion break into a dreamy and familiar seeming song, reeking of various decades past but brought up to speed with their lively, contemporary approach; consistent but ever-changing, familiar but novel. This dichotomy between new and old is mirrored by nothing better than the facial hair from left to right. Mutton chopped funky man JamieContinue reading “FUZZKILL presents Shredd (single launch), Fruit Tones (EP launch), Breakfast MUFF, Savage Mansion at The Old Hairdressers, 8/4/17”

Shredd – Every Time We Meet I Wanna Die [Fuzzkill]

Shredd offer a sense of levity and enjoyment without sacrificing their integrity. This is not to say that the band takes themselves too seriously, but they are not joking at their own expense either and with heads kept on straight they could make some serious waves. It will be interesting to see what Shredd canContinue reading “Shredd – Every Time We Meet I Wanna Die [Fuzzkill]”

HOME$LICE, Shredd, The Ediots at Sleazy’s, 24/2/17

Opening proceedings tonight The Ediots caress a gentle surfy vibe, teasing sunny snapshots as Eddie Stewart’s nonchalant lead vocal is punctuated by the occasional high whimper. When they do up the tempo they go more tropical tinged classic rock than the garage you might expect; ‘Golden Girls’ continues along the same shinning surf lines withContinue reading “HOME$LICE, Shredd, The Ediots at Sleazy’s, 24/2/17”

FUZZKILL RECORDS presents Shredd (EP launch), HOME$LICE, Black Cat Revue at The Old Hairdressers, 21/1/17

A Fuzzkill show is rarely a tame affair, but tonight’s show manages to blow it out the water with a headliner that grasps the show by collar and engulfs the venue in as chaotic an atmosphere as I’ve witnessed in a while. That said tonight nearly never happened, well maybe that’s taking it a bitContinue reading “FUZZKILL RECORDS presents Shredd (EP launch), HOME$LICE, Black Cat Revue at The Old Hairdressers, 21/1/17”
