Whats On, Latest... Part 2

More things to do and see we did not add yet to main website...... (and more still to come!)

The Social Services - female-fronted, guitarless and strong on harmonies, TSS stand out from the crowd. There’s a theatrical edge to their live shows, which have been known to feature musical processions in animal masks, audience participation and guest musicians on cello, trumpet, concertina, monologue and nose flute. All three members write for the band so there’s no shortage of material.

Glasgow-based Alternative/Pop outfit The Starlets - 'Once upon a time, singer Biff Smith's sister Gill attended The Glasgow School of Art where drummer Craig Laurie was working. Gill mentioned Craig's name to Biff who was trying unsuccessfully to get a band together and they met up for a rehearsal. On the day of the rehearsal Craig had been to a football match and was slightly the worse for wear after having had "a few". He entered the practice room, sat behind the drum kit and fell backwards off the drum stool. It was love at first sight'.

Martin Aelred - a man of passion... a multi-talented artist and a messenger of WORLD PEACE through opera. Soon to be embarking on 'Around the World in 80 Cathedrals' tour...

Findlay Napier - Findlay and his band are leading the Scottish nu-folk revolution with anthemic tales of love, debauchery and sin laced with black humour. He draws on influences from the darker side of genres like Folk and Country with a sound that remains uniquely Scottish.

Alex Cornish - “In the absence of any discernible musical talent, the dream for any music critic, especially at fanzine level, is to find that most elusive of things, which is an artist nobody else has heard about so you can proclaim them from the rooftops triumphantly. After years of searching and false starts, I’ve found him. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Alex Cornish – the man I’m putting my money on to be huge…he has created one of the best albums I have ever heard” – Tasty Fanzine
