ABSOLUTIST

"Like swimming through wet cement filled with broken glass. Judge not, lest ye be judged," is how the Aberdoomian threesome describe themselves. They play noisy sludgey doomy metal, and they do it very well. Part of their UK & Irish tour.

ERIC EUAN + RISE + tbc

8pm-3am, 3, 18+ only

ERIC EUAN

Eric Euan on Myspace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads

Alternative rock music of depth and substance. Instantly infectious songs driven by a powerful rhythm section. A dynamic three guitar attack and soaring vocal harmonies giving a distinctive and lasting quality, isolated from the scene. A sound free from clich and unique enough to outlast any current trends. That's sound-weaving nordic post-rockers Eric Euan.

RISE

Rise on Myspace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads

Scottish rockers Rise are inspired by iconic bands, mainly from the 70s and 80s, including Thin Lizzy and AC/DC. They provide a raw rock sound with a few twists that always goes down delightfully well on a packed Saturday night.

Youve heard of Led Zeppelin, yeah? Otherwise I think

greatest tribute to the Zep, the almighty Led Astray from

Edinburgh. Its a full length set - I think we squeezed two

hours out of them last time including the encore. Sweet!

GHOSTS OF PROGRESS

GHOSTS OF PROGRESS on Myspace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads

Do yourself a favour, and go have a listen to these guys

on Myspace despite the fact its now turned really shit.

Two musicians with guitars and a selection of percussive

instruments within stamping range. If the genre blues-

punk exists, these guys just rewrote the rule book.

As if that wasnt special enough, this is the launch of

their brand new spanking album. Onstage first, 9pm-ish.

Fudge present:

THE MALPASO GANG

Press Release:

"Aberdeen's newest country band, the Malpaso Gang, proud heirs to the long tradition of outstanding country music rooted in the fertile forelands of the Grampian Highlands have claimed the title of... 'Best Indie Band' in the Aberdeen Fudge Music Awards.

They credit their success to a profound love for professional wrestling set to a soundtrack of Buck Owens, and their legions of adoring fans.

"We're so proud" said spokesperson Nina Eggens after downing her 8th shot of whiskey and shooting out all the bottles behind the bar, aiming from the hip. "It's all down to Hank Williams song 'Rambling Man", she said. It was the train whistle that apparently set off the fusilade, claiming the lives of the cheap liquor behind the bar. No survivors were reported.

No news as yet about posting bail for the Gang's sharpshooting lead singer. That might need to wait while the band raises money to pay off the bar bill.

The bar tab resulted from drinking following the brawl that erupted when, while claiming an unrelated award for a stranded steel guitarist, Matt Duncan made an insightful comment about a neighbouring city in an unfortunate moment of candor and honesty. Dave Haxton, off to fetch another pint, could not be reached for comment.

All of which is appropriate, because as we all know, country music is all about true stories. And all this, we swear, is true."

Support from:

ACID FASCISTS

Acid Fascists | Free Music, Tour Dates, Photos, Videos

"In his novel, The Autobiography of a Brown Buffalo, Oscar Zeta Acosta refers to Charles Manson's family as acid fascists. We like to believe that an alternate universe exists where Manson chose the path of rock n roll over the insanity of racism and celebrity slaughter. In this universe we would be his band......

...WELCOME TO THE INGLORIOUS WORLD OF ACID FASCISTS!"

FOXHUNTING

foxhunting

Singer/songwriter type acoustic acts have a bad record for pulling out of shows at the Moorings over the years. It's probably the impending terror that does it. Anyway! No matter, let's try again with some upbeat Aberdonian folk-rock.
