COPY HA HO - local heroes

Copy Haho are a music band from Aberdeen (Shcotland). At the moment, we're finishing off a full length album that is to be released in the comming months by Dundee based Pet Piranha Records.

Tracklisting; A - Bookshelf / AA - Desert Belle

Recorded with Robin Sutherland at Marlee Road (Dundee) and Andy Millar at Chem19 (Glasgow). Additional saxaphone played by Dan Hadden, Cello by Alan Barr. The single is available through I Fly Spitfires [see top 8] and the following independent record shops;

Aberdeen, One Up Records

Glasgow, Avalanche

Edinburgh, Avalanche, Elvis Shakespeare

Newcastle, RPM

Manchester, Piccadilly Records

London, Rough Trade, Pure Groove

'a lo-fi cock tease of a single' - gigwise

'interesting post-punk sound, set in 1981 before any of these young scamps were born and with elements of the Cure, Comsat Angels and Echo & the Bunnymen as reference points' - sound sxp

Q WITHOUT U

We make new-wavey noises with the occasional burp of electronica. In the last couple of months the band put out "slow clap" as a 7inch single. Jim Gellatly on Xfm has given "Slow Clap" a few spins in the last week and this past Thursday (27th July) Huw Stephens at Radio 1 played and gave a great plug for the single whilst standing in on the Rob da Bank show,which was nice ;-).

single review

"Not too long ago, with the countrys media fascinated with the small yet ever productive Glasgow music scene (I think it was all because of some band named after someone who got assassinated or something), this single from art-pop types, Q Without U would have had NME hacks spewing forth with gratuitous praise. As it is, Slow Clap sneaks out of Scotland with little fanfare. Over the top on the synths (one sounding like the buzzer from Catchphrase) it may be but it does feature a cool, bouncy, ascending riff like Shes Lost Control by Joy Division; if Manchester had a tropical climate instead of constant drizzle. Theres even a bit of xylophone twinkling away as the song builds to its conclusion neatly, just under three minutes long. Talking of the grim buildings and rain that influenced Ian Curtis and Co. however, these boys are from Glasgow, and therefore well used to grey skies and run down tenement buildings themselves. So suitably the B side, The Face That Launched A Thousand Ships is less of the shiny, happy synths, more of the melancholic Arab Strap-alike guitar pop - with lovely wooshy, Flaming Lips tremolo type sound fizzing away in the background."

HOUSEHOLD

Since the summer of 2005, Central Scotland based four-piece "Household" have been writing tasty no-wave punk rock. The tunes are driven by tight dynamic drum n' bass, sometimes-noisy-sometimes sweet guitar lines, lo-fi keyboard & synth, analogue tape loops and urgent vocals. Household now have two three-track CDs, both recorded entirely 'in the household', available at all the shows or from inthehousehold.com. Together from across Callander, Doune, and Glasgow, you can expect us to be bringing our live rock action to many many exciting local spots.

You can now download some demos in MP3 format from www.inthehousehold.com. The CD is also available to buy online using paypal for 2 pounds (inc. p+p).
