  1. Following the reunion of Katerwaul, Auto Rock's second gig will be something a little bit different... THE BOOKSHOP BAND, ALAN SPENCE & EOIN SMITH Waterstones Aberdeen, Union Bridge 3rd June 2014 - 7pm Tickets on sale soon. https://www.facebook.com/events/246928275495120/ THE BOOKSHOP BAND The Bookshop Band write songs about books and play them in bookshops. Their literary-infused acoustic folk is a truly magical experience.

  2. 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.

  6. 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
  10. 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!
  11. Mogwai - My Father My King Mogwai - EP+6 Tenner?
  12. Did you get my PM about meeting up to exchange shabby paper moneys for shiny plastic discs?
  13. A tenner for the three series of Futurama?
  14. That looks pretty decent. Might actually go for a jaunt to Inverness for it, assuming my exams don't start that early.
  15. Gladstone hadn't heard of any of the bands playing, so I was asking how the gig was (ie were the bands any good?).
  16. I would go for... 1. The Decemberists - The King is Dead 2. 65daysofstatic - Silent Running 3. Pensioner - Yearlings 4. Sucioperro - The Heart String and How To Pull It 5. Indian Red Lopez - Empty Your Lungs and Breathe 6. Kassidy - Hope St. 7. Vessels - Helioscope 8. The Little Kicks - The Little Kicks 9. J Mascis - Several Shades of Why 10. Maybeshewill - I Was Here For A Moment, Then I Was Gone http://www.herculesmoments.co.uk/2011/12/2011-in-lists-eoin.html
  17. Can't wait to hear this, tracklist looks brilliant.
  18. Lovely tunes, sling us a copy of the EP when it's done and we'll get it reviewed and featured in the EE
