T In The Park


Arising in the campsite on Sunday morning, having successfully negotiated my way in on Saturday night sans wristband, I made the conscious decision to get out as quickly as possible. The place was like a scene from Mad Max 2, feral children gnawing on remnants of food and scouring for the last drops of alcohol from the night before, let’s not even talk about the toilets which were by now past the point of ever being used again. more… “T In The Park”

T in the Park, Friday


Arriving to my first ever Friday at TITP following its introduction last

Glasgow Arches

Arriving in the tranquil setting of the ‘wee’ arch, it was in stark contrast to my last visit and the rowdy celebration that was the Fatcat Xmas party. Instead of 40 strong choirs, stage invasions and wrestling there were candle lit tables and a crowd of musos, thesps and various members of Glasgow’s new school here to pay homage to a man who very probably provided some of them with the impetus to start a band in the first place, indeed speaking to James of the Twilight Sad he remarked that the Arab Strap song ‘Fucking Little Bastards’ is a source of “daily inspiration.” more… “Aidan Moffat / RememberRemember”

Meursault / Over the Wall

Trampoline @ Edinburgh Wee Red Bar

There appears to be new nights popping up all over the capital at the moment and one such soiree caught my attention recently at the Wee Red Bar. A firm favourite with any music fan in Edinburgh, the Wee red is home to the Egg club on Saturday nights and was also the venue for the filming of the recent music docu-film The Art School Dance.  more… “Meursault / Over the Wall”
