  2. Hey bud, 9pm/ 9.50pm / 10.40pm for headliners for this one as it suits the style of bands for Discopolis to be a later act. Normally it would be 8.45pm / 9.30pm/ 10.15pm
  3. And after that fairly beasting start to DHC 2013 last week, we are back on the 8th March at Snafu for another round of good times, this time with an all round local feel… Friday 8th March 2013 Dirty Hearts Club @ Snafu. UNIFORM BLATANT FLAWS CS BUCHAN + DHC DJs till 3am 8pm - 3am £5 entry (tickets on door) UNIFORM http://www.facebook.com/weareuniform?v=info#!/weareuniform UNIFORM are a 5 piece band hailing from Aberdeen, Scotland. The band has been together since October 2011 and has released 2 singles on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify. Debut single 'Is This Just What it Takes?' was met with a great response and followed up with second single 'Passport'. The band have enjoyed gigging around the local area, and also completed their first headline tour last summer where they played 5 dates around Scotland. This will be their first show at DHC and we are looking forward to having them! For fans of Snow Patrol, Idlewild, Frightened Rabbit, Coldplay BLATANT FLAWS http://www.facebook.com/BlatantFlaws?group_id=0&filter=3#!/BlatantFlaws Blatant Flaws are an Aberdeen based 4 piece formed at the tale end of 2012. Drawing influence from the 90’s grunge scene, modern Scottish indie and post-rock bands such as Explosions in the Sky and Mogwai. Blatant Flaws combine loud, thrashy riffs with fragile melodies and heartfelt lyrics. Think of Nirvana fronted by Aidan Moffat and you might be somewhere close. CS BUCHAN http://csbuchan.com/ CS Buchan is a prolific Aberdeen based singer-songwriter who plays a blend of traditional and contemporary sounding Scottish folk with an indie sensibility. Previously CS Buchan has shared the stage with the likes of Jeffrey Lewis, The Cave Singers, Acoustic Ladyland, Wave Pictures, Thomas Truax and has played at the Insider Festival – Aviemore.

  4. FRIDAY 15TH FEBRUARY @THE TUNNELS 7.00PM / (14+ SHOW) £6.50 advance/ £8.00 on door PAWS +Support + DHC DJs (in between bands) Tickets available from Ticketweb: http://www.ticketweb.co.uk/event/paws--the-tunnels-tickets/31729 FB Event: http://www.facebook.com/events/326255820813354/?fref=ts PAWS 2012 has been a very important year for PAWS. It's seen the band sign with Brooklyn/Brighton based label FatCat Records and tour the UK and Europe extensively. Their first release on the label in May, the self recorded/produced "Misled Youth EP" was supported by a run of UK shows opening for L.A's Bleached (ex Mika Miko sisters Jen and Jess Clavin). Key shows at Brighton's Great Escape Festival, Beacons Festival and appearances at Vice Issue Launch parties in London and Brighton were met with great success to audiences welcoming PAWS with open arms. At the beginning of the year the boys recorded their debut L.P "Cokefloat!" at the Lightship95 Studio in London with Rory Attwell (ex-Test Icicles) and was released worldwide in October 2012. Singles from the album have enjoyed lots of support from influential UK radio dj's, receiving plentiful airplay by BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe, a session on BBC 6 Music's Lauren Laverne, as well as ‘Sore Tummy’ being play-listed on BBC6. Into Autumn and the Canadian punk duo Japandroids invited PAWS to join them on their European tour and shortly after that, their UK tour. The tour saw PAWS play to their biggest audiences to date, including a sold out show at London's Heaven Nightclub. After the release of the album the band celebrated by heading straight back out on their first headline UK tour. Rammed out shows at Glasgow's CCA and East London's Shacklewell arms were important highlights for the trio. In the later half of 2012, "Cokefloat!" has received support from music media worldwide including features from people like SPIN Magazine, MTV, KEXP Radio, Brooklyn Vegan and Pitchfork. PAWS' music has even appeared on more than one occasion on the cult West London based television series, "Made In Chelsea". The band are now preparing for their first visit to the U.S in Early 2013 after another headline UK tour in late February. Plans for a limited edition 7" release including two brand new home recorded tracks and a cover version are in the works to celebrate their first visit to The United States. PAWS go into 2013 bright eyed and busy tailed ready to take on new challenges and bring their music to new places that they haven't had a chance to yet. Party on Wayne. Party on Garth. “Their vibrant melodic verses give off a bubbly, positive vibe, but dig a bit deeper and occasionally the lyrics unexpectedly turn darker. Stories of self-alienation, paranoia and insecurities are slipped in between the rhythmic, fast-paced energy of the Misfits.” - MTV “Sore-throated, sabre-toothed glory.” - SPIN Magazine “A brutal burst of pure emotion that takes no prisoners as its ruthless, lyrical content once again becomes a symbolic unifier. Fuck death. Love PAWS.” - NME “Well I guess this is growing up.” - Pitchfork (7.1/10) “Classic Indie Rock and Roll.” - Zane Lowe, BBC Radio 1 "Sweet, rousing punk" - The Guardian “A raucous, cantankerous punk mélange” - Artrocker Magazine (5/5) “This is agonisingly painful music, poured straight from the heart - just as punk should be.” - BBC
  5. Continuing our theme of popping up for occasional good times as opposed to a weekly event the DHC will be back in 2013 in a big way! Once a month on a Friday at Snafu we will be bringing special guests, the pick of the local bands and upcoming DJs to play alongside DHC resident DJs for YOU! We kick 2013 off with....

Delivery deadly, rhymes sublime” (Scotland on Sunday) “Genuinely fresh and exciting. . . hip-hop on a par with the socially conscious likes of Jurassic 5; Michael Franti; as far back as Gil Scott-Heron, and with a pop sensibility that sneers at bling and gets on with living” (17seconds.co.uk) “Combines the observational wit and savvy of The Streets with the full-band musicality of classic Scottish pop” (The Word) Whether you get off on words, beats, tunes or all of the above, Edinburgh six-piece Stanley Odd deliver the full deluxe package. Alternative Scottish hip-hop with heart, mind, wit, grit, conscience and superb live musicianship.

  13. Oh and Can I Want More is shit hot too!
  14. I went to that - in Picturehouse? Really enjoyed it. Got into Neu first from buying it a wee while back then ended up starting with a compilation called Deutsch Electronique Musik (excuse the spelling) Link here: http://www.souljazzrecords.co.uk/releases/?id=18676 Which led me to a heap of other stuff (its in One Up for a £10 spot i think) and particularly La Dusseldorf and Faust were favourites of mine. Kinda overplayed it at the time so sickened myself of the genre but this thread has rekindled it! Giles- that Riton mix is quality - downloading now so ta!
  15. Still working out the stage times but first band will be on sharp 8.45pm. Tickets still available and should be available on the door unless we sell out during the day tomorrow. Id say get in quick if you do want to go! Hope thats more help. Curfew is 11pm.
