What is pround are why are you it.

Whilst we are being picky about typos Ian, should the above sentence not read:

What is "pround" and why are you it?

I believe this one belongs to me! Thank you.

That wasn't a typo, it was bad grammar.

I'll have that back, thank you.

TABASCO FIASCO // SOUNDS OF SWAMI // ARAKAN YOMA

Monday 25 August 2008 @ Snafu, 1 Union Street

MySpace.com - Black Tooth Rock Lounge - 88 - Female - Snafu, UK - www.myspace.com/blacktoothrock

TABASCO FIASCO - MySpace.com - Tabasco Fiasco - Livingston, UK - Rock / Experimental / Indie - www.myspace.com/tabfiasco

Tabasco Fiasco are fabulous. Don't believe me? Click the link.

Tabasco Fiasco are an experimental rock band from Livingston & Edinburgh in Scotland dabbling in areas such as Instrumental Rock, Math Rock, Progressive Rock, Stoner Rock, Post Rock and Pop Rock. The Fiasco ethos is to ignore commercialism in music and terms like 'radio friendly' and concentrate on writing music that is original, interesting and most importantly.... rockin!

Tabasco Fiasco began as 3 piece outfit in 2006 consisting of two guitars and drums and using this line up put together an EP called 'Hot Sauce!' which was recorded live in the studio. It featured one of the bands early flagship songs 'The Last Angst' which caught the attention of Brendan O'Hare (Macrocosmica) who suggested the band release their next EP on his new all-digital label 'Thrapple'. The said song also managed to find it's way to Vic Galloway's BBC Radio 1 show 'BBC Introducing...' which gave the band an instrumental debut on UK wide radio. (The vocals don't start until around 4 mins into the track.)

Since then the band have added bass to their sound spectrum and have been working hard on new material for a forthcoming release on 'Thrapple'. As with the first EP, the new EP was again recorded live in the studio which has resulted in a very honest recording. In this technical age of digital editing and studio trickery Tabasco Fiasco have decided to get right back to basics - no bullshit - an idea which is mirrored in the bands attitude to self promotion.

Tabasco Fiasco are not aspiring to get a record deal, they don't ruthlessly self promote, they're not interested in commercial attitudes to music; they simply write the music that they would want to hear and try to have as much fun as possible whilst doing it.

SOUNDS OF SWAMI - MySpace.com - Sounds of Swami - Keighley - Progressive / Punk / Rock - www.myspace.com/soundsofswami

To categorise Sounds of Swami isn't an easy task. Whilst our roots essentially lie in punk rock, we as a band, feel the need to always keep the sound moving, different and to the best of our capabilities. We love punk. We love rock. We love hardcore. We love metal. We love grooves. We love art. We love effects. We love simplicity. We love complexity. We honestly embrace every corner of the musical spectrum and enjoy playing different styles of music. In the end, is this not what playing music is all about? Having fun?

So far in our short existence, we have raised many eyebrows in both approval and censure. This is what makes us tick and keeps us feeling like our music is alive. We believe that punk rock should always be an alternative and a provoking concept; inside and out of its circle. Weve been playing the width and breadth of the UK solidly for the past year and half and were showing no signs of stopping. We hope youll come and see us with an open mind and support another band whos plying their trade independently in a world where music has become not much more than a business strategy to most. Were working hard and loving every second of it.

ARAKAN YOMA - MySpace.com - arakan yoma - LARNE, UK - Experimental / Ambient - www.myspace.com/arakanyoma

arakan yoma is a mountain range in burma. arakan yoma have been making experimental, instrumental rock since spring 2004. undoubtably our biggest influence, for good or bad, is the town and surrounding countryside in which we grew up. we are now all in aberdeen writing new songs and trying to remember the older ones. a kitchen on spittal walk is our new headquarters.

A Dundonian rock band, I'm sure you've probably heard of them... Kerrang and NME both love them. First album released on the wonderful Pet Piranha label a couple of years ago, and a new album out now. Rarely seem to play Aberdeen, so we're delighted to welcome them back.

SAKURA TSUI - burlesque performance

www.myspace.com/tsuisuicide

From Edinburgh, loves burlesque, fire and a combination of the two. What else? "I like leopard print, Junko Mizuno, tight lacer corsets, tattoos and cant live without those dirty basslines. I do music in many different ways and I like to dance in only my underwear, with hot girls who make me laugh."

THE WILDCARDS

Local support comes from popular rockers The Wildcards: "By fusing hard edgy rock and filthy funk together, we have developed a unique exciting sound that's raw, funky, dark and dirty!" they almost claim. They have free passes to dish out to everyone, so drop them a line and demand one!

Monday 13th October @ The Black Tooth

Snafu, 1 Union Street, Aberdeen

Doors open 9pm, first band onstage at 9.30pm...

lappp_thumb.jpg

LIFE AMONG PEOPLE mix weighty musical intelligence with social awareness. Armed with a broad palette they defy pigeonholing while wielding an undeniable power high on energy and packed with promise.

The band have already received fantastic reviews from their previous EPs in the rock mags and online, with most reviewers practically begging for an album which will see release in early 2009.

KERRANG! - KKKK (4/5) -..placed somewhere between Biffy Clyro and Deftones, these impressively ambitious, articulate underdogs certainly deserve to enjoy wider recognition

METAL HAMMER - one of the brightest new hopes in the UK

Expect mind blowing, punchy, atmospheric punk rock crossed post-hardcore - reminiscent of early Thrice or Biffy Clyro" (Big Cheese Magazine 4/5 LIVE section) and thats what youll get.

PINPIM are a tripod of tight dirty grooves and melodic power, and never fail to deliver an immense mix of melody, sleazy hooks and tight heavy grooves in every show. PINPIMs refreshing and distinctive style and sound sets them apart from the current spray-on jeans, image obsessed scene and has earned them a loyal fanbase and some high profile support slots throughout the UK.

BBC RAW TALENT - 'one of the tightest 3 piece bands in the UK, a very hard act to follow'

FATCAT MUSIC - 'Effortlessly tight, every track is a stormer'

Celebrating the rise of independent label GRUBBYNUN RECORDS, the bands take to the UK paving the way for their future releases in 2009. And with the all dates sponsored by Jgermiester, this tour will certainly be one you wont forget in a hurry..

Also on the bill are the mighty BLOODNUT - no introduction needed...
