Yob @ Audio, Glasgow 06/09/2014 - Photo by Alex Woodward

It’s fair to say that both Yob and Pallbearer have been something of a big thing lately, with both of their 2014 releases pretty much guaranteed to be on the best of year lists for every doom aficionado and Shoreditch-dweller who likes a bit…

Loop @ SWG3, Glasgow 02/06/2014 - Photo by Alex Woodward

The ties between Loop and Godflesh are long-standing ones, more overtly with the awesome Loopflesh split 7” back in 1991, though Robert Hampson’s guitarwork on Pure was another fine example of just how well these two units go together. People were reminded of this…

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats @ G2, Glasgow 24/04/2014 - Photo by Alex Woodward

When Uncle Acid’s Glasgow show was first announced (around about the time that people without Black Sabbath tickets were resigning themselves to never being able to see them hit this fair city) it quickly became one of those ‘must-attend’ kind of shindigs, although the…

Purson @ Broadcast, Glasgow 09/12/2013

It’s nearly half nine before anyone finds out that tonight’s support had failed to turn up but, being rational, it’s doubtful that people hadn’t figured it out themselves by then. Combined with a rather poor promotion job for the show (I don’t think I…

Nails / Blind To Faith / No Island / Notebooks @ Classic Grand, Glasgow 13/11/2013

Nails / Blind To Faith @ Classic Grand, Glasgow 13/11/2013

As I spot people queuing outside the venue for an already-early hardcore gig, I wonder what it is that makes Nails so special that a dozen-or-so people would stand in the freezing cold just to avoid missing a minute of the evening. I’m still…

Kadavar / Buffalo Summer / The Dead Raven @ The Cathouse, Glasgow 25/10/2013

Kadavar @ The Cathouse, Glasgow 25/10/2013 - Photo by Alex Woodward

Whenever a show is announced for The Cathouse, there’s always a feeling of nonspecific dread that rises in my stomach. Partially due to incidents at past club nights with the creepier members of the clientele and partially a history of terrible-sounding gigs, it’s unpalatable…

Saint Vitus / Mos Generator / Atragon @ The Cathouse, Glasgow 14/03/2013

Saint Vitus at Cathouse, Glasgow on Thursday 14th March 2013 - Photo by Alex Woodward

35 years. 35 sodding years it’s taken Saint Vitus to get their arses to Glasgow, and now they’ve finally gone and done it, they’re more than eager to get shit rolling which is probably why Edinburgh’s Atragon are kicking off just 15 minutes after…
