  1. Got my tickets for Glasgow too Awesome times! Really looking forward to hearing the new album and will be very interested to hear what it'll be like after Hazards of Love (which is definitely an album that needs to be listened to from start to finish each time).
  2. Come join the Granite City Roller Girls for a night os SKAndalous fun in the Tunnels! Propaganda DJs spinning out punk, new wave, rock and ska all night plus Sound System live to get ya'll skanking about and living it up with the best quad-based roller-skatin' team in town.

Saturday the 9th of October 8pm till 3am 3 all night The Tunnels Room 2
  3. I've a fridge full of Dogma and Chaos Theory at present. Chaos Theory is the perfect midpoint between the Punk and Hardcore IPA, and the Dogma's dead drinkable.
  4. Brew Dog stall on the Belmont Street market today - Picked up Tokyo at 3 a bottle, plus they have Hardcore IPA on sale for 3 a pop too (and it's an awesome drink).
  5. Tescos at Danestone sell Zeitgeist. It's great. The beer, that is. Tescos is OK. Bit big.

  7. A popular beat combo from Canada, that enjoy nothing more than playing jaunty pop tunes for politely behaved audiences (except for those in Scotland, until recently). I think. I always get them confused with the other Skinny Puppy fronted by perpetually gore-covered Nivek Ogre. In-yer-face live shows and a repertoire of songs that can be heftily political or opinionated (anti-vivisection being a common theme). Have been around for a long time now - Named as an influence by many industrial/electronic acts. Recent live stuff - See goths dance! - Political much? - An example of their anti-viv stance - Goretastic banned vid - Musically, I think they're awesome.
  8. Having caught them live twice at End of the Road last year, and having heard a sneak-preview of their new album earlier last month, I could not be any more excited about this gig!
  9. I'd say Isa on a bit earlier, so they'll finish around 10.30ish for changeover to the club. 9.30, to be safe?
  10. Nicely pimped, cheers min! Yeah, come see some ace bands and then stick around for Propaganda! A grab-bag of music for dancing too, bundled together with a theme'o'fun for the dressing up and looking dapper. It's quite fun, but don't take my word for it - Come along and let ears and feet decide! Check us out on Facebook for previous playlists. Become our fan. We love our fans, they get to hear first what the next theme's going to be earning them precious minutes of extra design time.
  11. I totally forgot the new Besnard Lakes album is out. Any cop?
  12. I've had the new Efterklang on in the car quite a lot, which speaks volumes; It's nice, but it's not really attention grabbing. I'm really enjoying Tunng, and FR's only had the one listen so far so I've not really made up my mind about it yet... Agree re: Last Harbour, but given I'm hyuge Nick Cave fan it's right up my street. Of all those I listed, I think Shearwater and the Jeffrey Lee Pierce Sessions Project are my favourites.
  13. Tunng - And Then We Saw Land Frightened Rabbit - The Winter of Mixed Drinks Efterklang - Magic Chairs The Jeffrey Lee Pierce Sessions Project - We Are Only Riders Last Harbour - Volo Various - Rough Trade Counter Culture 2009 Shearwater - Golden Archipelego Get Well Soon - Vexations
  14. I do have a horrid cold at the moment, so can just about manage a guff growl when I recite it too. However, you wouldn't want to hear what I can do to a piano.
  15. Like a disembodied foot found in an inner-city alleyway, this initially looked to me like an urban leg end. I'm aware of a well-known legend (and confirmed hoax) about a Civil War shooting resulting in a bullet travelling via a ballsac and scoring a uterine bullseye via the messy hands of a no-doubt overworked and underpaid field surgeon. Interesting to note that in this old skool telling there was also talk of genital weirdness, but this time it was the resulting offspring that had (implausibly) been born with the man's nut mysteriously present in the infant's bawbag. Could this mean that the lack of vagina in the current story is there to convince you that the knife is the only plausible explanation for the pregnancy, much as the transfer of the man's ball is used in the older story? So I went on the hunt for the evidence, tracking down the original paper that the article Bob's posted says it's based on: You can read it by clicking here. Part of me, despite reading the paper, still feels very uncomfortable about calling this true... But hey, the paper's worth a read!

  17. I can't believe there's a website to answer your question, but there is: All from Facts on Farts Now you know, and I hope your life is richer for it (but not your stink).
  18. 1) Roy McElroy 2) Kila 3) King's College Tract 4) Strand Theatre (Ithaca, New York) 5) Gorinto 6) Ethan 7) Danny Clark 8) Biysk 9) Viljandi Folk Music Festival 10) Christopher Rudd Death Industry are Boyce Lekan, Graig Gianopulos, Henriette Deritis, Cecila Houltberg and Loan Bunzey. [1] "Lead single 'Viljandi Folk Music Festival' is all we've come to expect from Death Industry; Its agit-goth core rises up through a billowing cloud of post-rock to deliver yet another protest dirge that must make Efrim Menuck think he's just not trying hard enough" - Pitchfork. "Lekan's vocals cut through the sombre jaunt of Gianopulos' guitar, whilst Houltberg eschews a normal drum kit for bespoke junkyard salvage trash. The addition of Bunzey on theremin doesn't lift the band to the heights expected, and it's hard not to find the three minute solo on 'Christopher Rudd' to be anything other than self-indulgent" - Drowned In Sound. Metacritic - 34% [1] Generated from Random Name Generator with the obscurity rating at 99.
  19. I started looking this up, but got distracted when the hits for my vague search terms came back from the publication databases: (In case anyone's interested, apparently drinking a little more than your average on any given day is a pretty good way of significantly increasing your chance of a blowjob, but doesn't increase the chance of penetrative sex substantially. Well, I say "you", but unless "you" happen to be a Penn State U student used to getting wasted on three bottles of diluted gnat's piss, or you happen to share the weird American attitude towards "blowies not being sex, yeah?", then I'm not sure how relevant this research is. In Aberdeen, for example, a quick handjob down the harbour might be a more likely outcome. Still, science eh?) Now, what was I supposed to be looking for?
  20. Alcohol's basically an anaesthetic, which is unfortunately just answering a question with another question: We're not too sure how general anaesthetics actually work - They Just Do. Some people reckon it's due to the agent interacting with specific targets on cells, others reckon it's due to them making the waxy, protective barrier of cells more fluid and, as a result, messing around with the way cells respond - such as impairing the way neurons transmit signals. My best guess would be that a hefty bender is essentially a titration experiment in administering our own general anaesthetic. Sometimes we get the dose just right, othertimes we end up passed out on a strangers's floor with dignity hanging loosely by our ankles. Hypothetically, of course. I'm not speaking from experience. Much.
  21. There's also "All dressed up and smelling of strangers..." which is his double-album of covers. I think I like it, but nowhere near as much as his original stuff.
  22. Tindersticks - New album out end of this month
