The Rising Souls – Electric Circus 21 Feb 15

After years of gigging, last night was, embarrassingly, my first ever visit to Edinburgh’s Electric Circus. Excuses, I have none, albeit perhaps that my musical junkets in Scotland have predominantly been in Glasgow, save a smattering of Edinburgh gigs over the last few years. Electric Circus is a quirky little place, the low slung ceiling …

Little Fire album launch – Oran Mor Glasgow 05 Dec 14

Everyone loves a celebration! And whilst Christmas celebrations may have started for some, the Oran Mor played host to a very special birthday celebration on Friday night. But it was really only very briefly a birthday celebration when the crowd that had gathered, burst into song to wish the evenings main event many happy returns. …

An M&Ds Christmas Experience – Guest Review.

Time for another guest review folks, this time something seasonal, which I personally think will put a smile on the face of anyone suffering Ba Humbug type thoughts. It was written by a friend of mine who’d rather remain anonymous. It made me roar with laughter… Those of you who know me well will know …

Steve Cradock and The Gramotones – Oran Mor Glasgow 30 Oct

At 7.30 on gig night the Oran Mor in Glasgow is quiet. Doors opening around 7 means the bar, to the rear is always the busiest area at this time. Looking onto the gig area directly in front, it’s empty although the few dimly lit seated booths have been occupied. So too have the pillars …

Andrew Roachford – Voodoo Rooms Edinburgh 18 Oct

The short walk from Edinburgh’s Waverley station toward West Maitland Street on Friday night was dreich. Rain too light to be bouncing off the street, but still enough to soak you to the skin should you choose to stay out in it too long. Lucky then that my destination, The Voodoo Rooms, only required me …

Daniel Meade – As Good As Bad Can Be

Ever wondered why it is often tricky to convince people to listen to country music? Perhaps you’re amongst those that don’t like it yourself. Well, Bill Anderson’s words relayed to me by Glasgow singer Daniel Meade, helped me understand why it might be the case. To those who would tell Bill that they once didn’t …

Edinburgh Festival Review Fri 09 Aug 13

Friday 9th August was my first outing to this years Edinburgh Festival and what an evening it turned out to be. Never used to being able to capture much more than a show or two in one outing, being able to sample five quite different acts made for a very interesting evening. Transport times to …
