  3. I FLY SPITFIRES NORTH PRESENTS... THE VIPER LINES WE ARE THE PHYSICS HOOKERS GREEN NO.1 HEY ENEMY DOORS 8pm, 3 Over 14's Welcome!! Bands playing 8pm-12am with spitfires dj's mixing it up 12am-3am! Come on down for a boogy!
  4. This show - as with all I Fly Spitfires North shows - is over 14's. It's only over 18's for the clubnight, and not before! So whilst bands are playing, 14's and over are permitted!
  5. 10 Easy Wishes Aberdeen's favourite pop punk trio! Dan Against The World Power-pop played how it is meant to be: loud, noisy and with a geeky sense of eccentricity! Fiction/Action Aberdeen's latest punk rawkers, sounds like Q and not U sharing a lovely scone with Fugazi Dance Lazarus, Dance! Synth based band from Edinburgh! Maths equation -> 1/2 of Fiction/Action + 1/2 of Dan Against The World + 1/2 of Dance Lazarus - 10 Easy Wishes = The Gloria Flaw

  10. Hello, Everyone here seems to know about guitars and the like so I'll try to employ your Budda-like wisdom. I'm after a pedal or number of pedals that will make some very wacky noises for a solo in one of our songs. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions? Hit me with them! I was wondering if anyone knew of a pedal that could create sounds similar to the ones Johnny Greenwood of Radiohead achieves for the solo at the end of 'Go to Sleep' on 'Hail To The Thief'? I know he uses a Mac patch for it but I was wondering it any one has ever come a across a pedal that can make similar robotic sounds (and can cut through loud distortion). Thank you, you're all lovely. Spitfires
  11. A sterling effort from the Team Beard DJs, great tunes and great times. Thanks you! And thanks one and all for coming down. Clubnight#2 drops Friday 29th September and will feature: The Victorian English Gentlemans Club Attack and Defend Miss The Occupier Maps BE THERE!
  12. I Fly Spitfires is a club night which runs one Friday each month at the Tunnels, Carneiges Brae, Aberdeen. Being backed by the likes of 'Drowned in Sound', we are the sibling clubnight of the highly successful nights that run in Cabaret Voltaire, Edinburgh and The Barfly, Glasgow. We like to think of ourselves as the black sheep of the family. The club night will run in the format of bands playing from 8pm, with the clubnight running afterwards until 3am. So if you want to rawk, dance, or just check it out, then head on down! Our first clubnight runs on Friday 18th August and features: Flying Matchstick Men Grand Prix '86 Right Hand Left Fiction/Action Entry is 3 and doors open at 8pm. (first band on at 8.30pm) Also appearing and firmly part of the team are the wonderful One-Up Records DJ team playing tunes just for you and your feet. (We know the flyer says Valentine will be performing, however they have since been replaced by Fiction/Action due to other commitments (Fiction/Action tell us their new ep will be on finally on sale that night). Valentine will be playing at a spitfires club night in the future).
