Zola Jesus Glasgow, Halloween 2014

Zola Jesus

Fantastic gig by Zola Jesus at Stereo, Glasgow UK on Halloween 2014, great fun and Ms Nika Roza Danilova was on top form throughout, bit bouncier and more upbeat than the last time I saw her in Edinburgh, but that’s not a bad thing!

Apologies for the distortion in the audio when she hits some of the higher notes, did my best to fix it but the original audio is worse! She just has such a big voice for such a little person!

PULSE at The Old Fruitmarket in Glasgow, October 3rd 2014.


A great evenings entertainment, with FOUR artists/bands for a mere 10 quid! Sadly under-attended though (what’s wrong with you people?) maybe it was the miserable weather.

First up was Matthew Collings, who did a solid and noisy set

Next to go was a fabulous set by Gazelle Twin, who looked really spooky in her hoodie and mask like some sort of “inner city kid” Dr Who monster! Kinda creepy but cool with it! ;)

Gazelle Twin

Closely followed with an amazing set by Scanner aka Robin Rimbaud which was loud, noisy and beatsy (I was expecting something in a more ambient vein!)


Headlining the night were the brilliant Wrangler , headed by ex-Cabaret Voltaire’s Stephen Mallinder, also a great big beat driven and noisy set – and lots of flashing images and green  LASERS!

Only slightly late ….

Hello again!

I’m back after some hideous technical woes over the past couple of months, so ***should*** be posting more regularly again – huzzah!

… anyways I haven’t told you about the brilliaint gig by The Psychogeographical Commission, SECURITY and aistob on 8th February 2014 at The Old Hairdressers, GLASGOW, UK.

First up were aistob, who were a machinist/computer operator (Gordon?) & chanteuse (?) who did a rather excellent version of Bauhaus‘s Bela Lugosi’s Dead



Next up were the wonderful SECURITY (Joe Ahmed & P6) with their DEBUT gig!!!


and very wonderful it was too – as you can see below (only one slight technical hitch all night as well!)


(this track and more wonderfulness from their Bandcamp page – click on image or link above)

Hopefully more gigs in more places soon – watch this and other spaces!

Headlining the night were The Psychogeographical Commision performing the rather scary “Jack The Ripper” live for the last time. A sort of live soundtrack to imagery from 3(?) “Ripper” films.

Andy (with weird electronic thing) and Stuart (guitar/effects) of Psychomm

Unfortunately the projection/lighting wasn’t too great so no video – ***BUT*** you can get a DVD from them sometime soon from their website (click the images/link above)

more soon….. ;)

…been a while since I’ve been to a gig, and wasn’t feeling too great and the Glasgow weather was miserable! 8(

But I’d been looking forward to this gig for a while, altho thru ‘The Arches‘ sorta promo wise it was held at the Berkeley Suite which is quite small and intimate and even has nice decor!

Support was from Tonstartssbandht who are an Amerikan duo playing guitar and drums with vocals, but weren’t really ‘my thing‘.

However Miss Boucher was on fine form and seemed to enjoy herself although the set was only about 30-40mins long which was a bit disappointing but hey….

A clip of Grimes performing the excellent Genesis below:

Lykke Li


Slightly delayed post. By about 6 months! Unfortunately Lykke threw her back out in April & had to cancel her original show. And the venue moved to the slightly larger(?) O2 ABC.


Support was by First Aid Kit who are a couple of Swedish Hippy Chick sisters (in matching tie-dyed curtain dresses!!!) who did a sorta acoustic/country/hippy type set – but even altho it’s not really my thing they were pretty good. You can see some pics by @catt231 here


Of course Lykke Li herself was rather fabulous and her set included most of her fine album Wounded Rhymes and with LOADS of smoke & strobes made me very happy! :D (some more fotos by @catt231 here)
