I have Raging Speedhorn to blame for ruining my life. They were the soundtrack to my first punch in the face in the pit. My first spilled beer. My first ruined tour t-shirt. The first time I could barely see the band on stage…

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…

Kawabata Makoto / Golden Teacher / Squish Kabosh @ Nice ‘N’ Sleazy, Glasgow 15/07/2014

Kawabata Makoto / Golden Teacher / Squish Kabosh @ Nice

Tuesday nights are rarely the most exciting of evenings, and usually the only highlight is finding something worthwhile on the telly to kill a few hours. It’s why the presence of Kawabata Makoto in Glasgow is such an absolute treat, but the low turnout…

Loop / Godflesh @ SWG3, Glasgow 02/06/2014

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 / Black Moth / Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell @ G2, Glasgow 24/04/2014

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…

The Body / Voe / Headless Kross / Buried Sleeper @ Audio, Glasgow 23/04/2014

The Body @ Audio, Glasgow 23/04/2014 - Photo by Alan Swan

Sometimes, a night can be exciting for the most trivial of reasons. First off, having The Body come to town was always going to be a highlight of the week (hell, it’s a highlight of the year, to be honest) but there is also…

Conan / Bast / Headless Kross / Bacchus Baracus @ Audio, Glasgow 17/03/2014

26th March 2014 at 9:19 am

Conan @ Audio, Glasgow 17/03/2014

I’ll say it right now: I love Audio. Tucked in an alleyway, it’s the size of someone’s spare room, the bar is basically a few fridges with random bottles of spirits sitting on top and the flush in the gents’ bog is hanging out…

Kylesa / Sierra / Jagged Vision / Isak @ Ivory Blacks, Glasgow 01/02/2014

10th February 2014 at 10:38 am

Kylesa @ Ivory Blacks, Glasgow 01/02/2014 - Photo by Peter Davidson

It’s with a distinct lack of fanfare that Dundee’s Isak take the stage, and I have to admit that at first, this seemed somewhat appropriate. Their mid-90s stoner rock chic is very no-frills, the competent riffing and even tone of vocalist Joseph McGarrity not…

Wooden Shjips / Helicon @ SWG3, Glasgow 12/12/2013

Wooden Shjips @ SWG3, Glasgow 12/12/2013 - Photo by Peter Davidson

Even if not much is known about Helicon, those with keen powers of observation can get a good idea in advance. The split with Spain’s Celestial Bums hints at a similar keen appreciation of tight, tripped-out jams; the Ganesh that hangs from their synths…
