    Auto Rock

    Hello, I've started a new wee gig promotion thing called Auto Rock. I'll be putting on sporadic gigs and special music events over the coming months. The first show is a welcome return for Katerwaul, who haven't played a full gig together in over 2 years. They'll be joined by Seas, Starry and Kitchen Cynics at Downstairs on April 26.

    it begins... The Fudge Awards 2013

    Orienteering and DasMcManus are pretty great new bands. Carson Wells, Min Diesel, Stanley all put our decent albums/EPs this year. Seas, Starry are always pretty great. The Little Kicks and The Deportees make good indie music.
  7. In all seriousness, opinions about battle of the bands aside, why would you hold the final in a hotel and not a proper venue, which would showcase the bands' sound better with the benefit of a proper sound system?
  8. No problem, just wanted to make sure the message hadn't been lost somewhere in the murky depths of the internet!
  9. For those of you who didn't manage to make it along, I wrote a wee review of the gig http://www.herculesmoments.co.uk/2012/02/rachel-sermanni-live-lemon-tree.html

    Local Talent Recognised at Scottish Awards

    Yes, I noticed that too! I feel that comments made both on the internet and in emails were taken out of context in that blog post, however in the spirit of not wanting to start a full-on internet war I am choosing to say nothing more on the matter!
