I've not been to as much gigs as I'd like to lately but here we go. Bands/folk I like: Marionettes - Used to play with them a while back and I think they've gotten really really good. Hard working guys, new songs are ace and they're great live. Standard! Min Diesel - Haven't seen these guys in a while but I like the way Zippy plays and the tunes are right up my street. Craig Davidson - Lovely tunes and plays guitar affa well. Ashley Park - Again lovely tunes. Miss Lucid - What can I say, I do love a bit of sub-manics, sunglasses fuelled generic indie tunes. Worst band in Aberdeen. Ga waa tae fuck! Callahan - Scapey niceness done really well. We played a gig together last month and I proper enjoyed their set. Jeff Bruce on drums too! Ooft! Akord - We supported these guys at their Lemon Tree gig and they were ace. Nice guys, good tunes and totally tight. Martin's the best technical guitarist I've seen in Aberdeen and love that twiddly shit. Indian Red Lopez - Again really like their tunes. Did sound for them once in Tunnel 2 with the old ratty PA though and it was a terrifying experience. Turning 13 - They're the first band I remember going to see regularly when I was like 16. I grew up with their songs, they're all awesome, inspiring musicians and I'm really glad they're carrying on. Roll on Live at Toms part 2! Worst. Back when I worked in Drummonds I could rattle off a list as big as my arm, but I think the Aberdeen music scene is pretty good at the moment (or I've just not caught any really shit bands lately).
