  1. Alphas are looking to expand our line up to include someone to play synths and/or guitar. We are an indie-rock band and having released our debut album last year intend to get back in the studio first of all to record a single or EP ahead of arranging gigs. If you are interested or have any queries just message here or email alphasliveemail@gmail.com. Links are below to listen to current tracks. www.alphas.bandcamp.com www.soundcloud.com/alphaslive www.facebook.com/alphaslive www.twitter.com/alphaslive
  2. Alphas are looking for a new drummer to complete a current three piece line up (possibly going to look for a keys/synth player as well). We're an indie-pop band and previous drum parts tend to feature quite a distinctive rhythm on drums but we'd welcome any style of play. We're both in our 30s but age not necessarily an issue. For more info, links to tracks and social media as follows: www.soundcloud.com/alphaslive www.alphas.bandcamp.com www.facebook.com/alphaslive www.twitter.com/alphaslive Over the last year we released our debut album, played XpoNorth and were nominated for Best Newcomer at the Scottish Alternative Music Awards. We're hoping to continue progress in this next 12 months and certainly hope to have another release, be it in the form of an EP or second album. We'd be looking for someone willing to be commited to practicing fairly regularly and playing in and out of Aberdeen. There may be some financial expenditure if we record again so may require some commitment. Anyone interested either message me here or email alphasliveemail@gmail.com.
  3. Our album is now available for a free download ar www.alphas.bandcamp.com. Happy listening!
  4. A bit self indulgent perhaps as my band is one of those nominated but there are several Aberdeen based/originated nominated at the Scottish Alternatve Music Awards this year. Just a couple of days left to vote if anyone is wanting to help some local acts: Best Newcomer - Alphas Best Acoustic - Best Girl Athlete Best Live Act - Kathryn Joseph Best Rock - Dear John Best Hip Hop - The Ill Collective Best Electronic - Lockah http://officialsama.co.uk/vote/NOW/ Awards may not be everyone's cup of tea but seems like pretty good recognition from Aberdeen.
  5. And just been nominated for Best Newcomer at the Scottish Alternative Music Awards. HUZZAH!
  6. We're finally going to be releasing our album A New Fire on the 25 Sept. Due to a few circumstances we've decided to put it out as a free download rather delay any further so will be putting it up on Bandcamp then and will likely look at having some physical copies at gigs. All the tracks are now available to listen at www.soundcloud.com/alphaslive. Positive or negative comments/feedback always appreciated.
  7. Releasing our first single today on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play et al. https://soundcloud.com/alphaslive/here-comes-the-burn-single-out-060415
  8. Cheers! We recorded with Steve Curtis at Floortom Studios. Would definitely recommend it.
  9. Well its taken us long enough but after lots more recording, re-editing and mixing we're moving closer to getting things released. Just wanted to post up some tracks that are going to be on our upcoming album so any feedback would be welcome. Here Comes The Burn is going to be released as a single in April though.
  10. Cheers for the comment! Next gig for us is at the Moorings on the 25th, which should be a good one. Some linkages for further updates from us: www.facebook.com/alphaslive @alphaslive
  11. We're gigging this coming Saturday at Downstairs with Turning 13 among others should anyone want to take a listen.
  12. Cheers Jan. Terminal is probably the odd one out of all the tracks and we kind of realised it was a bit daft so decided to stuck with trumpets! They're not part of the live sound though and if anything that song comes across a bit rockier at gigs. Nothing confirmed in terms of gigs at the moment but likely we'll have something arranged in about a months time. Thanks again for having a listen though.
  13. Just thought I'd give my band Alphas a bit of a plug and try and get some feedback on our recordings. We've been playing sporadic gigs over the last 8-9 months but have been concentrating on recording an album with three tracks below. https://soundcloud.com/alphas-aberdeen/revolutions https://soundcloud.com/alphas-aberdeen/terminal https://soundcloud.com/alphas-aberdeen/dna We're hoping to pick things up in the next few months with finishing and releasing the recording, touring but also getting some gigs sorted here first. Hope you like the tracks but thanks for listening regardless.

    Really looking forward to seeing this. James McAvoy looks like he's nailed the part going by the trailer.
  15. Up his Supermassive Blackhole don't you mean?
  16. Pa Broon to retire at the end of the season. http://www.afc.co.uk/articles/20130314/craig-brown-to-retire-_2212158_3108670
  17. My band The Scandal Extracts recently recorded a couple of tracks so hoping for some feedback. It's just a bit of rock if that's your thing. Hopefully these will be available as a single via iTunes and CD soon.

  18. By that reckoning how have they increased season ticket sales when this is their first year? If they had any sense they would have put a 0 in the 11/12 column and marvelled at the percentage increase.
  19. Getting tickets for Live at Jodrell Bank with Sigur Ros headlining.

    I had a burger from Tesco. Gave me the trots.
  21. Let Charles Green go ahead with this I say. Let him alientate his club further and dig an even deeper hole for themselves. Sooner or later they're going to go over the score and face further consequences giving us all more entertainment. And bravo to Eupraxia for the use of the word fuck-sock!
  22. Ryan Adams plays drums on the new Lemonheads album now you mention him so there's a couple more to put on the list! I'll add Frightened Rabbit and Black Kids to the ones I said before as well.
  23. I hope Rangers are called out on this one. The SPL/SFL should give them the ultimatum of A) leave or B) stay and give your support for the reformed plans. Does he really think anyone takes him seriously about leaving? Of course you'll leave you fucking pudding, you'll leave and go and play in the other league in Scotland...actually no...I mean they can play in the Premiersh...no wait...that Atlantic League is about to be...just a second I'll think of something. Put the pressure back on them and if they want to shit where they eat then they should take some consequences for it. Personally I'd be happy for having them as part of the discussions if they had the common good of Scottish football as their main agenda. While I don't particularly like the 12-12-18 with a split idea there are areas of progress and anything to instigate change and discussion between the clubs can only be a good thing. It's still early days Mr Green, you'll get your chance to have your say. Otherwise, do us all a favour and stick to your word...
  24. Django Django - Django Django. Default was easily my favourite song this year. Great debut all round. Japandroids - Celebration Rock. Great to see so many people liking this album. The House That Heaven Built and Continuous Thunder are a great way to end the album. The Cribs - In the Belly of the Brazen Bull. Balls out rock, get in! Sigur Ros - Valtari. Not their best album but I always hoped they'd write one like this. Really good chill out album. Paul Weller - Sonik Kicks. Haven't bought a Weller album for ages and I wouldn't say I'm a huge fan but this is a cracker. The singles in particular were really catchy. Frightened Rabbit - State Hospital EP. Not an album but absolutely loved this and got me listening to a ridiculous amount of FR since.
