End Of Year Awards Thing...Best Live!

Yep its about time i bothered to get my live award up i've still a few more to do but why not go with live first.
Now as alot of people do i go to alot of gigs, usually atleast 2 a week so over the past year i've seen...a good few bands(theres no time for maths) So who did i think was particularly special? Let me tell you.

Best Live....

I had the pleasure of catching Young Fathers this year at OXJAM festival and i was nothing short of blown away by this band. Now i'm not the most knowledgable on the Scottish Hip Hop scene however one of the names that keep on popping up is Young Fathers. Their live show is high energy, with big dance moves, and using the stage like their own personal playground, while working the crowd and really energizing the crowd and getting them involved, seeing a crowd full of people dancing like an albatross is still one of my highlights of the year. If you havent seen these guys live yet, you should as soon as you can.

I don't even know how many times i have seen pooch now(its starting to get a bit stalky), I saw them for the first time back in 2008 in Cassette and have been hooked ever since. Pooch are not one of those bands that seem to have a bad gig, they are a consistently brilliant live band. This band are pure attitude and have one of the finest frontpersons in the Scottish music scene. This band are a must see if you like your electro pop with a good slice of dirtiness. 

Penguins Kill Polar Bears
I first had the pleasure of catching these guys at King Tuts in the summer and was blew away by their intesity. Penguins dynamics in performance follow the dynamics in their sound it is explosive and a pleasure to the senses. Homebound from the "Dawn" EP is one of my tracks of the year. If you like post/alt rock but also have a soft spot for great melodies this could be the band for you. Go and see em.

Special Mentions

This year i could have given special mentions to a bunch of bands as there really are some darn fine live bands kicking around but for now lets go with Mitchell Museum, Hold Your Horse Is, The Lava Experiments and Here We Go Magic.

Merry Christmas everyone.

End Of The Year Best OF Thing Or Something - Best New Bands Award

Well its the end of year on my lazy lazy blog, I'll be better in the new year i swear, but i'm gonna try and go through some of my favourite new bands, favourite songs of the year, favourite gigs, favourite release... lets start with...

Best New Band

Its hard to pick just one band for this section as i've had the pleasure of seeing so many great new acts start up over the past year but i'll narrow it down to say 3?(note i know this may not be exact but i've only been blogging for a few months be easy on me eh?)

What can i say about Paws? They are a fantastic no thrills catchy as f*ck punk rock n roll band. Their debut single "Violent Vicky Violet" is definetley one of my songs of the year. I've followed their progress since they formed and they have already cemented theirselves into the Glasgow music scene. They've toured around the UK had countless support slots and writing some damn fine tunes. I'm really excited to see what these guys do next.

Blue Sky Archives in my opinion are one of the best new bands/bands in Glasgow right now, they are a band who mix awesome hooks over dynamic alt rock soundscapes. I was lucky enough to catch their first official full band gig as a part of the RADAR gig at Nice 'n' Sleazies back in May and was blown away by then and since then they have went from strength to strength playing some great shows aswell as some European touring they are definetley a band to keep an eye on over the next year!


So Many Animal Calls are another bunch of young upstarts who have really caught my eye launching their free EP "Your House Is A Hospice" at the start of the summer which was looped a great deal in my media player, with their heartfelt blend of energetic punk rock i was very exicted to see them live and i actually had the pleasure of being at their first gig as well. At a packed out house in Captains Rest these guys showed a real statement of intent to what to expect from them. They've recently been in Chem19 after winning a grant and i peronsally cant wait to hear what comes from that session.

Special Mentions:

Theres alot of bands that could be in this category but these are just my personal standouts special mentions have to go acts like Verse Metrics, Loch Awe, I Build Collapsible Mountains & Finn LeMarinel.

Dont forget to check back over the next few days to check out my other awards...

Aspen Tide

Aspen Tide

Glasgow is becoming known for a haven of post hardcore-emo-punk-pop whatever bands, theres some bands who do it well, and some bands that do it not so well, Aspen Tide are one of the bands who i think do it well. Lets see what their singer Robi has to say...

1. Who are you?

I'm Robi Lambie and I play guitar and sing for Aspen Tide.

2. When did it all come together?

It's a very recent venture. We were all studying music at University when we met a few years ago but we didn't start playing together as a four piece until the summer of this year.

3. What is an aspen tide? Is it an effect of global warming?

I guess that Aspen Tide could be described as an effect of global warming. I often come up with these odd phrases and it takes me a while to piece together what they actually mean. I've got an odd subconscious! At the moment I think it is a reference to avalanches in the skiing town of Aspen but to be honest it just sounds like a cool name!

4. Dream support slot?

I've unfortunately had to come to terms with the fact that my dream support slot will never happen. It would have been Nirvana as I think even just to see them play live would have been incredible. I'll settle for Biffy Clyro or Idlewild.

5. You released your EP recently, howd that go?

It went really well. The EP was just a bunch of tracks that we had recorded ourselves at the formation of the band and gave an insight to what was coming for Aspen Tide. We wanted something tangible to give to folk at gigs and it really was a huge DIY effort with the mixing, mastering, artwork and production of packaging all being done by the band themselves. We've since moved on however and enlisted others for help with the production of our debut single!

6. Who would win in a fight between you and trapped in kansas?

That's a tough question. Hopefully we'll never know the answer to that question but if I was to defend our corner Garry is a brutal Karate master, competing in British competitions and I won a trophy at school for Judo! I reckon if the TIK boys can punch as well as they can play though we might be in trouble!

7. Favourite local bands?

It's an amazing tribute to the scene that most of my favorite bands are local! These include: Trapped In Kansas, The Darien Venture, Make Sparks, Sucioperro, There Will Be Fireworks, Farewell Singapore, NoExitWound, MakethisRelate, .scores, Tempercalm and The Winter Tradition amongst others!

8. Whats next for you?

We are currently finalizing plans for our debut single release which will either be out towards the end of this year or the start of next year. In addition we will have a special free Christmas track out soon! We are currently still in the studio already demoing new tracks for next year and have plenty more shows lined up before we take a break for festivities!

9. Whats your dirty pleasure to play on a jukebox?

I've always wanted to be asked this question cause I have an abundance of dirty pleasures!
Maria - Blondie
Angels - Robbie Williams
Lifted - Lighthouse Family
Lucky - Britney Spears
Kiss From A Rose - Seal
Equador - Sash!
Maneater - Nelly Furtado

10. Parting thoughts?

Why is milk white? 
(Its caused by a protein called Casien)
If you want to listen to the band why not head down to their Aspen Tide or their Facebook or you can catch them at Define Pop Festival on November 13th where ou can get tickets from them or Tickets Scotland

I Build Collapsible Mountains

I Build Collapsible Mountains

There has been a lot of hype about this young man former Gothenberg Adress front man Luke Joyce's new project. His album "A Month Of Lost Memories has been warmely welcomed into the hearts and mp3 players of the Scottish music scene, lets see what he has to say for himself then?

1.Who are you?

Cold and hungry.

2. How do you go about building collapsible mountains?

You start at the top and work your way down then stop just before you reach the village.

3. When did you start working alone?

I have always written music alone, its just the way i work. Even in my previous band i wrote the music and then brought it to the band. So the big change here is the performing on my own. I kinda like it.

4. You recently released an album through that sexy Peenko records, tell us about it?

Its a collection of very roughly recorded songs. Rough, but to the height of my abilities. Lloyd Peenko heard something in the songs that made him want to get them out to as many people as possible so he offered to help me put them out as a release. We ended up with an 8 track ltd cd and a 15 track album download. The cd sold out in less than 2 weeks, which was a nice bonus.

5. Did you always know how you wanted the record to sound?

I knew i wanted it to be completely different to what i had done before. This meant stripping things write back, and letting the lyrics take the lead. I wasent too fussed about how expertly they were recorded, so i just set about doing it myself in my boxroom. Now i think that raw sound is part of the main appeal.

6. Who else do you like in the "scene" right now?

I like Penguins Kill Polar Bears, Admiral Fallow, Hey Marseilles, Verse Metrics. Their my most recent likings.

7. Star Trek or Star Wars?

Starwars. If my dad was obsessed with Startrek then who knows what i would be called...

8. What have you got coming up?

Well, this week i have two shows - Thursday im doing the Elba Sessions fnal show of the year at the liquid ship...(this post was a bit late)..., and then friday im playing the final ever AVP show at the classic grand. Then im opening for your good self at the Admiral Bar on the 13th. And then after that its off up North to Thurso and Aberdeen with the Verse Metrics chaps on the 24th/25th Nov. There is also a new mini album ready to go so il be getting that all ready.

9. Favourite non collapsable mountain?

Himalaya Tandoori Indian Restaurant, Edinburgh.

10. Parting thoughts?

I am now a little warmer and i just ate a double decker. Can someone give me a job please. Thankin' you ta'.
 Thanks alot to Luke for answering the questions you can catch him live at The Classic Grand tonight supporting The Seventeenth Century and Come On Gang! for the fabulous Ayetunes vs Peenko. And then at the Define Pop festival. You can listen to him at His own website and buy tickets for define pop festival here at Tickets Scotland

Shambles Miller

Shambles Miller

 Its time for the fast talking folk tastic singer-songwriter from Glasgow the one and only Shambles Miller. 

1. Who are you?

Hello, I'm Shambles Miller; your friendly neighbourhood folky-man.

2. How shambolic are you in real life?

At the launch party the other night for my new EP, I spruced myself up a
wee bit: shirt and tie, waistcoat, pocketwatch, trimmed my beard, had a
wee haircut. I thought I was looking pretty sharp. A girl who didn't know
me personally, asked which one Shambles was. She was told I was the one
who looks a bit of a shambles.

"Oh, that guy then?" said the young lady, pointing at me. I still can't
tell if I should feel flattered or insulted.

Also, I'm quite forgetful and I bump into things a lot.

3. What work goes into writing your stuff?

I always find this hard to answer. It goes a bit like this:

[pick up guitar]
"♪ ♫ ♫ ♪ ♪ ♫ - ooh, nice tune. I need words now"
"Oh, wait, how about..."
"Oh, there it is. Where did that come from?"
[play song]
[go make celebratory sandwich]

The silence-then-arrgghhh part can last anywhere from an hour to three
months. The three months thing only happened once though, with a song
called "AAARRGGHHH!" I hope this answers your question.

4. So you've just released a new EP i hear?

I certainly have, it's called "Shambles Sails the Clockwork Sea". It's the
second in a trilogy of EPs, the first one being "Shambles Vs. The
Dragonwizard", both of which feature some pretty nifty EP art from Neil
Slorance as well as (obviously) songs by me. Both available from all
good...websites that sell my EP. Namely bandcamp and big cartel.

5. How would one sail a clockwork sea?

On a clockwork boat, of course.

6. Which bands/artists do you really like right now around Glasgow?

Well first off I'd have to say my brilliant support acts from the other
night: Andrew Lindsay and the Coat Hooks, Reverie, and Florynce and
Lauryn. I'm also a big fan of the Second Hand Marching Band, Julia and the
Doogans and Kitty the Lion. Oh and I also played a gig recently with Sean
McCann's new project "The Ballad of Alex K", they're definitely one to
keep an eye on. It's a good time for music in this city just now.

7. Favourite moment so far playing live?

The EP launch the other night was really very special. So many of my
friends were there, the venue was the busiest I've seen it and I was
playing alongside some of my best friends, including my band for the
night, currently dubbed the Ramshackle Rascals. Playing the closing track
"Alice's Song", with my friends, to my friends and family was, well, it
was braw. Just braw.

8. Worst moment so far playing live?

Hmmm, there's been a few here and there. I'd say probably the gig in
Failford. (Yes, that is a real place)
There were a lot of children running about at the gig, so I had to cut
half of my songs (apparently singing the word 'fuck' at children is
frowned upon) and tone down the rest of my material. On top of that,
nobody was really listening, I was more there for background noise, which
is fair enough, but not something I was prepared for. Plus, right before I
played my last song, the compere interrupted to tell everyone if they
wanted to get the last bus back to the city they had to leave immediately.
On the video, I think you can hear my friends laugh. And my soul crumble.

9. Whats next?

Lots more gigs, hopefully. I'm also planning to record and release a
single sometime in the near future, and the third EP in the trilogy is set
to be recorded next summer. Apart from that, I'll keep doing what I'm
doing and take this as far as I can. I hope to get to share stages with
some more great acts and perhaps play a little further afield. And there's
the time machine I'm working on, but nobody really wants to hear about

10. Do they definitely not deserve 6 figure salaries?

When they get paid to run services into the ground and take money from
their lowest-paid workers? When they justify cutting the hours of the
core, bottom-line staff, in order to save exactly the amount of money that
the boss at the top of the tree makes in a year? And when millionaires get
paid to make decisions which take money from the poorest in society whilst
the only difference they'll see themselves is longer dole queues? You tell me.
(We'll take that as a no?)

So if you fancy picking up a copy of his awesome EP you can go to Bandcamp or Big Cartel or if you fancy just listening to a few tracks head down to his Myspace. And he're a little video diary on Shambles trip to Failford

Loch Awe

 Loch Awe

 Edinburgh right now has a thriving nu folk scene with new great bands popping up all the time. Loch Awe are on of the bands that came out of nowhere to release a well recieved free album. They are one of my new bands to watch for the year a head and they were nice enough to answer a few questions.

 1. Who are Loch Awe?

We are Matthew, Jack, Joy and Oliver.
Although you're only speaking to Matthew and Jack.

2. How did you get together?

We all met at Edinburgh uni. Jack lived above me in student accommodation, Oliver drummed in a friend's band (so we sort of stole him, I guess) and Joy used to have dreadlocks. We thought that was the best thing about her, until we heard her voice. But even without the voice, the dreadlocks would have been enough to get her in the band.

3. If you travel to England do you become lake awe?

Yes, I suppose we would have to. I've already experienced problems trying to tell Scottish people what we're called. It's getting to the stage where I'm considering having business cards printed up. So if we ever make it down south, we'll be doing everything we can to be as understandable as possible.

4. You've just had your first few shows how did they go?

They were great fun! We're still not as tight as we could be, but we know that will come with practice. We actually had our second gig last night. It was an acoustic show at a friend's birthday party, and was dead intimate. We'd love to do a couple more like that. We'll also do christenings, funerals, weddings and political party conferences.
(Also, on that note we should thank you for organising our first gig, shouldn't we? Thanks!)
(pleasure was all mine-SS)

5.You recently released an EP how has it been recieved?

Very well, it would seem. It was written and recorded in my living room, on my laptop with some equipment of rather questionable quality in just two weeks, so all things considered the reception has been overwhelming. Certainly I haven't yet seen anything telling us we should quit music, burn our instruments and chemically castrate ourselves, which is a good sign.

6. What are your plans for the near future?

Naturally we're looking to play as many gigs as we can in and around Scotland (and, indeed, England - keep your eyes peeled for Lake Awe's debut!) We started recording demos for our next release today, actually! It's sounding pretty different. Pretty bluesy, which I'm surprised about. Hopefully we'll be recording this one in a proper studio, too (or somewhere that isn't my living room...) so that should be cool.

7. Which bands do you look up to in the scene right now?

In the Edinburgh scene, we're big fans of Withered Hand, Inspector Tapehead, FOUND, Meursault and many others we've forgotten to name. Glasgow-wise, we like Three Blind Wolves, Y'All Is Fantasy Island, Second Hand Marching Band, So Many Animal Calls, Reverie and Andrew Lindsay & The Coathooks (although I play guitar with him, I don't write any of the songs, so have no problem saying he's excellent).

8. What are your favourite water based activities?

Nude kayaking has always been a favourite. Our first team-building weekend included a challenge where we had to build our own kayak, and we made ours by removing our clothing, tying the sleeves together, inflating them and then sealing them up. It sank like a stone, but we were still pretty proud of our effort.

9. Who would you really like to support?

Jack would like us to support James Brown. I don't think he knows that he's dead, and I don't plan upon telling him. In all seriousness, any of the bands we mentioned in the 'local scene' question would be pretty ace.

10. Parting thoughts?

Well if people don't have it already, our debut album/EP thingy is still available, completely free, from BandcampThat aside, look out for us rocking a Bar Mitzvah near you in the coming months. And if you'd like to know exactly what we're doing and when, you can stalk us on Facebook and Twitter.

So far all those fans of nude kayaking, James Brown, Bar Mitzvahs and damn fine lofi folk i highly suggest you check them out at any of the links above. Go and download their free album, you wont regret it.

Futuristic Retro Champions

Futuristic Retro Champions
Following on the recent pop theme of the blog i bring you one of my favourite pop bands in Scotland right now. This is a band that once you hear are hard to forget, when i got this interview back from Carla and got near the end i was more than a little sad, but i'll let her tell you.

1. Who are futuristic retro champions? 
Futuristic Retro Champions are four friends Sita, Carla, Ceal and Harry.

2. How did the band come together? 
We started in 2006 as an art school project to soundtrack a film. Then we just kept going from there!

3. You seem to be a band who are proud to be pop, who are your influences? 
It varies greatly for all of us. I can say that mine are The Vaselines, George Harrison, Secession, Kylie Minogue, Jackie DeShannon, Phil Spector and Evan Dando.

4. You recently released a double a side, tell me a bit about it? 
May The Forth/ Settle Down was a very different direction for us in terms of sound. We were keen to put out something that we could all be proud of and felt it was the right choice musically and lyrically. We were lucky to get Martin Creed to do the artwork for it which made it that bit more special for us.

5. Which bands are you into right now on a locally? 
Ace City Racers, The Machine Room, Miaoux Miaoux and Hidden Masters.

6. Would you rather play a gig for the queen or the remaining members of Queen? 
For the queen.

7. Whats been the highlight of being a retro champ? 
There has been many but I'll always remember dueting with Eugene Kelly for the memorial gig held for our late tutor Paul Carter at the Wee Red Bar at Edinburgh College of Art. Paul had been very important in the formation of our band. It was an equally sad but happy night.

8. What can we expect from you in the near future? 
Bit of an exclusive for you. In December we will be releasing a Retrospective featuring all songs recorded to date. We will be doing a show in Glasgow and Edinburgh to launch this and also to say farewell! FRC will not be continuing into 2011 and so we hope everyone can come along and party and dance with us for one last time. Myself, Sita and Ceal will be continuing on under a new name with a new sound and Harry has gone on to focus on producing.

9. If the band could collabarate with any other artist who would it be? 
Tough one. For me - Phil Spector, Candi Staton, Billy Idol or Danny Kaye.

10. Parting thoughts? 
Just to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported us through out the years. We really couldn't have done it without everyone. A big special thank you to Eugene Kelly, Manda Rin, Martin Creed, yourself, Murray our manager, Paul Carter, Jenna Anderson, Hannah Danson, Fraser Bone, Colvin Cruikshank, Graham Dey, Ace City Racers, and anyone I have forgotten to mention. We hope that everyone keeps tuned for our new launch and sound in the new year. Lots of love and lemonade to all. It's been a rollercoaster of a ride. 
Futuristic Retro Champions will always be on my player when i need a good pick me up and i'll hopefully get to catch them atleast a few times before they lock theirselves away and come back as something new. For now though don't forget to listen to them on their Myspace and catch them at King Tuts on October 28th and playing one of the final slots at this years Define Pop Festival. Everyone had better pick up their Retrospective in December, i know i will be.

Vendor Defender

Vendor Defender

Following the theme of great pop acts around Scotland comes a band i knew in name for a long time before bothering to listen to them as i had the pleasure of supporting them and their groove laden indie pop stayed in my head the next few days which lead to me going to the launch of their last single "Dreamphone". With their new single "Golden Shivers" just released this week it seemed the perfect time for an interview.

1. Who are Vendor Defender?

We are Zak Frazer and Suse three people who love to listen, make and play music together.

2. What are your preferred methods of defence?

Suse likes firewalls, Zak wears chain mail and Frazer uses numchucks

3. How did the band come together?

We met at uni in first year, half on the internet, half in real life in halls. Frazer and Zak were at a party, Zak and Suse were on thesubcity radio forums...

4. Tell me a bit about the single?

Golden shivers is our take on dubstep but done with a band. We came upwith it one miserable day last year in our old grotty rehearsal roomsin Dalmarnock, perhaps the song reflects that it's quite dark. It'sbeen described as 'gothic'...?? It's not gothic...

5. What are golden shivers? and are they often followed by silver shakes?

Usually yes, if you've had enough to drink.

6. What process do you go through to writing your songs?

Normally one of us has an idea and we all work on it together and develop it in a full song.

7. Any plans for an album? Whats in the pipeline?

Not yet. Writing recording playing is our main priority just now. Whenthe time is right, it will be done.

8. What would be better a gig on a boat or gig in a castle?

A castle definitely, Suse is scared of water and everyone would be seasick.

 9. Who would be your dream support slot?

We like playing with our mates' bands, but we've love to support Yeasayer, Rilo Kiley, The Strokes, Battles though.

10. Parting thoughts?

Good-day and thank you. Go buy our single on CD at our bigcartel, now. It's also out on iTunes and other good internet-music-outlets.

Thanks alot to the band for answering the questions, their single "Golden Shivers" is out now so why not give it a listen at their Myspace. You can catch them in glasgow on the 26th of November supporting the awesome We Have Band at the Captains Rest in Glasgow.

Miniature Dinosaurs

Miniature Dinosaurs

Some people see pop as a bad word, I for one am not one of those people and when i think of great new Scottish pop acts Miniature Dinasaurs are never far from my mind. Their EP Chatterbox was on repeat on my CD player for some time after getting a copy and new single "Cold Shoulder" has all the great pop hooks of that release and gets me excited to hear more from them, so I invited Barry Dinosaur to answer some questions...

How did Miniature Dinosaurs come about then?

It was a Tuesday night at a Stirling Albion match, on a cold winter's terracing in Arbroath.  I met Alban at half time, we discussed our love for Pulp and as soon as full time came about we went back to Stirling to jam away the defeat...

Did you always know how the band was going to sound?

Alban and I put a few songs together that we used to get started, and then when we met Sam at Stirling Uni and Craig at the Tolbooth the songs really came to life.

Whats been the highlights so far of being a Miniature Dinosaur?

Personally I enjoyed playing at Forthbank Stadium before Stirling Albion lifted the Championship Flag!  More recently, being part of Being Victor on MTV has also been exciting.

Do you fear bigger dinosaurs? like Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs for instance?

I embrace them!  Perhaps we should ask them to remix one of our tracks?  Dinosaur overload!

Would you prefer a huge gig where a few people liked you or a tiny gig where everyone liked you?

If you mean that only a few people in the room like us before we play then I'd take the huge gig.  We love nothing more than being presented with a room full of people to win over.  At our level that is what we really need, and this is why we love going to new places, and then coming back to build on it.

Tell me a bit about the single?

Well, not long after the afforementioned Arbroath game Alban and I decided to start playing a few open mic nights around Stirling.  Love them or hate them, we had so much fun.  One of the covers we mixed in with the originals was 'Toxic' by Britney Spears.  Some of the melodies that we wrote for our special little re-arrangement are what went on to become the basis for the Cold Shoulder tune.

Whats next for you guys? Anything people should know?

We're going to play a few more gigs in November to promote Cold Shoulder and then go into hibernation for winter.  Perhaps hibernation isn't the right word as those months are looking like being very busy for us off-stage.  We really want to get ourselves together for a big push next year, starting February.  Some of the things that have been talked about are very exciting..!

Ice Age or Jurassic Park?

I took a vote.  Two say Jurassic Park and two say Ice Age.  I'm not sure what to do now..?

Parting words?

If you get a chance to come and see us we'd love it if you came along.  Thanks for even reading about us!

You can buy their single here, you can listen to more songs online at their Myspace and dont forget you can catch them live in Glasgow in King Tuts on November 3rd supporting the awesome Mitchell Museum, just contact the band on myspace or even their Facebook.

Thanks alot to Barry for answering the questions and keep your eye on the blog for more interviews to follow.
