BARBEROS - multiple drummers, live visuals, synth-noise n stuff. also SPANDEX.

MR PEPPERMINT - guitarist/drummer, spacey, reverby ruckus w/ pounding beats.

These two bands are about to start a UK tour this week. Problem is they can't seem to find anywhere in the north-east of Scotland on the 23rd FEB, that's THIS TUESDAY. Yes, incredibly short notice. I think these guys are aware of that though, they are really keen just to play somewhere and will listen to any offers.

Thought I'd post this here just to see if I could find anyone, anywhere in the north/north-east willing to arrange some sort of show on that date. The bands contact details and audio can be found via their myspaces, linked to above.

So how did this go then? I know it's early yet but wanted to check before i fall asleep...

Was fookin ace. Aside from the fact there was about 10 folk there. Seriously though, not seen drumming as good as that in drummonds possibly ever. The spandex thing I thought was gonna be some hipster gimmick but it actually worked well with the whole art school vibe of the night. That peppermint fella is loud!

barberos completely defied my expectations. was thinking they'd be like boredoms, more like "come to daddy"-style aphex twin, performed live. amazing. really hope they'll come up again at longer notice, to entice the audience they deserve.

mr peppermint were as just as great as they were back at cellar, with the added bonus of fraggle rock (animated) visuals. i forgot that show existed!

i'm happy.

Yeah totally loved this. Not my normal cup of tea but the live show was brilliant. Look forward to seeing them next time they come back. Got the CD in the meantime to keep me happy!
