A SAVAGE + JACK COOPER

13/10/2017
Wednesday 31st January ● Broadcast Glasgow

Daybreak tends to creep up on you. Emerging from starry darkness, the sun wobbles at first but proceeds on its scheduled arc. You can’t help but wonder if it ever looks back in disbelief, or regret. This feeling of self-reflection—of looking back to see how far you’ve come—is precisely the sentiment of Thawing Dawn, the first solo record from A. Savage, released on Dull Tools. The songs on Thawing Dawn form a guided tour through the romantic environs of A. Savage’s mirrored mind. While some were written recently, other tunes were penned over the past decade. For one reason or another, these compositions didn’t land with any of Savage’s other groups, and instead are presented now as a distinct collection. Reflecting back, Savage says, “Once I realized I had a small body of work that didn’t fit anywhere else, I started to examine the commonalities: What’s the common denominator of all this and how I can expand on it?” Savage is best known as the frontman for Parquet Court, a duty split with fellow Texan Austin Brown. Their last record, Human Performance, delved into the emotional wreckage of a broken heart, to critical acclaim. But withThawing Dawn, it’s clear that Savage has matured. While assembling the record, he fell in love. Now, for the first time, we hear songs about being on the inside of love. Rather than lamenting the end of a relationship, we hear a voice trying, in the moment, to make sense of love’s mysteries. “Part of this maturity,” he says, “is reflecting on something when it’s happening, not just when it’s gone.” Thawing Dawn gives us honesty: We see the artist at home in bed, more singer-songwriter portrait than esoteric statement. Throughout his discography Savage has long abbreviated his first name as a kind of writerly gesture. He says, of the move, “I am an uncivilized member of modern civilization--I’m just a savage.” Like Duchamp’s R. Mutt signature on a urinal, the shortening embodies a mischievous directness, enabling this savage to introduce his slanted honesty into the universe.“ Special Guest: Jack Cooper (Ultimate Painting)”

Wednesday 29th November ● Motherwell Civic Centre, Motherwell

DMA’S (dee-em-ayes) is Johnny Took, Matt Mason and Tommy O’Dell – three friends who came together making nostalgic garage pop in a bedroom in Newtown, Australia.

Since the release of their brilliant debut album 'Hills End', DMA’S have not stopped for a second.

Thursday 16th November ● Broadcast Glasgow

Kane Strang’s sensibilities for songwriting err toward the peculiar, being enhanced rather than restricted by a lo-fi psych-pop sound. Strang’s path toward a melody is always surprising, and he never misses a beat delivering his wryly deadpan lines bemoaning lost love and . “Strang has a gift for pulling diamonds from the rough”, said a recent Pitchfork review, “[his] songs have a way of making modest acts seem heroic.”

For Fans of: Jawbox, Lungfish, Unwound, other bands that scraped at their angst with jagged guitars and body-confusing post-punk charge.

Why You Should Pay Attention: The teenage trio from Nottingham, England had a bit of a coming-out party at this year’s Glastonbury festival, where they made good on U.K. hype built on their artfully retro sound and an ebulliently downcast live show. The band will be releasing their debut full-length soon and, if their great 2014 single “It Knows It” b/w “Adjust the Way” is any indication, it should be a fun little bummer of a record.”

LIAM GALLAGHER

31/08/2017
Monday 4th December ● SSE Hydro Glasgow

Representing his first tour following the October 6th release of his debut solo album ‘As You Were’, the announcement comes as Liam is back at the height of his powers. His return has been nothing short of spectacular, from emotive scenes in Manchester to huge sing-a-longs at Glastonbury, while three new tracks – ‘Wall of Glass’, ‘Chinatown’ and ‘For What It’s Worth’ – are already establishing themselves as towering anthems, delivered with Liam’s once-in-a-lifetime vocal.

Liam wrote or co-wrote every song that features on ‘As You Were’. In addition to Dan Grech-Marguerat, other key collaborators include Greg Kurstin and Andrew Wyatt. One of the most striking aspects of the album is that all the songs have a purpose. There’s no flab, nothing to cut. They all feel directed at something or someone, setting the record straight or getting his side of the story over.

LIARS + HAPPY MEALS

31/08/2017
Wednesday 1st November ● The Art School Glasgow

“When I first started working on this record, I was trying to explore the idea of being isolated,” says Angus Andrew, before falling silent for a few seconds. “Sorry,” he begins again, “I lost my train of thought there. I was looking at a kangaroo through the window.”

Angus is calling from a remote spot near Sydney, Australia – “In the super-bush, offshore,” he says. “I live in a National Park. There are no cars, it’s all rainwater and septic tanks.” Compared to the locations where previous Liars albums have been recorded – Brooklyn, Los Angeles, Berlin, bustling metropolises all – Angus’ current base of operations marks something of a left-turn. But, then, so does TFCF, (which stands for Theme From Crying Fountain), Liars’ eighth and latest full-length.

JOHN MAUS

24/08/2017
Saturday 25th November ● CCA Glasgow

John Maus lives in his birthplace of Austin, Minnesota. Whilst working towards his PhD in Political Science he also composes music that taps into melancholic fantasy and affirms that we are all truly alive. Questing synthesisers, tensely strung bass lines and chasing drum machines provide the perfect backdrop for John's deeply resonant reverb-drenched vocal.

Born in the decade of synth pop and sharing his birthday with George Frideric Handel, John started making music when Nirvana posters went up on every teenager's wall. It's this curious conflux of influences that partially helps to describe John's music. It's a world where the Germs jam with Jerry Goldsmith, Cabaret Voltaire relocate to Eternia and Josquin des Prez writes a new score for RoboCop. The confrontation of punk, the fleeting poignancy of 80s movie soundtracks, the insistent pulse of Moroder and the spirituality of Medieval and Baroque music all find salvation in John Maus.

After a spell working alongside Ariel Pink and Gary War in Haunted Graffiti, 2006 saw the release of John's debut album proper through Upset The Rhythm.

Friday 15th December ● SWG3 Glasgow

King Krule has shared a video for “Czech One,” the first new music to surface from Archy Marshall’s acclaimed project since 2013. Directed by Frank Lebon, the video features Archy alone in his thoughts but surrounded by hundreds of strangers on a red-eye flight -- as he contemplates his past, present and future. The visuals are a Noir-esque reverie, echoing the song’s atmospheric-downtempo-lounge-jazz-dream-state, where Archy muses, “To when and where the stars were formed, that glance upon this night / lightyears to sit upon and paint us as we lie.”

“Czech One” will be available as the A-Side to a limited edition 7” coming out September 13th on True Panther Sounds/XL Recordings.

Following high profile festival slots this summer at Primavera and FYF, King Krule has announced a worldwide headline tour in the autumn, with a huge show at Glasgow's SWG3. On general sale Friday 25th August at 10am.

PSYCH SUNDAY III presents:
BO NINGEN

01/08/2017
Saturday 24th September ● Broadcast Glasgow

This year's PSYCH SUNDAY headliners, BO NINGEN are a Japanese four-piece acid punk band consisting of Taigen Kawabe, Yuki Tsujii, Kohhei Matsuda and Monchan Monna. Though they come from Gumma, Tajimi, Nishinomiya, and Tokyo, they coalesced in London.

Musically, they channel their country’s legacy of obscure, brain-warping heavy-psych: Les Ralizes Denudés, High Rise, Sweet and Honey and Flower Travellin’ Band all traceable beneath their esoteric sound. It’s evident from the place they had all found themselves in their twenties however that they were in the mood for discovery: they regurgitated their tastes in Acid Folk and Noise and hurled them into the electric cataclysm too. Though challenging to process, any cautious, sensible listeners were saved by a weighty dose of Sabbath and Nirvana.

They’ve released 3 fantastic albums and have toured with Primal Scream, collaborated with Savages, earning widespread acclaim from the likes of The Quietus, DIY, Line of Best Fit and The New York Times. To them “Being ‘psychedelic’ means to stand quietly / loudly in the middle of interzone and stare at both sides at once”.

Made up of Dominic Gore, Duncan Tootill, and Ady Acolatse, Little Cub are an alternative/indie pop trio based in South-East London, U.K. Although their sound developed primarily in London, the ensemble actually formed in Dorking, Surrey in 2015. Gore and Tootill met by chance and instantly bonded over a shared passion for LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy and his label, DFA Records, alongside other seminal acts such as New Order and Aphex Twin. Gore then went on to meet Acolatse during a club night at London’s infamous Fabric. The three friends then began to brainstorm, sharing musical ideas, and Little Cub was born. Drawing across a range of influences, the trio’s sound encapsulated sleek noir-pop with ethereal atmospherics inspired by a multitude of electronic genres, alongside lyrics that traverse love, loss, and introspection. After amassing a number of strong compositions, the ensemble got to work performing in and around London; they released their first single, "Breathing Space," in the summer of 2016. The track garnered widespread acclaim and eventually caught the attention of Domino Records. They then put out their debut release for the label, Loveless, later that year. The song received further praise for its woozy, sparse, and lush electronics and soaring yet soft chorus melody. Little Cub released their first full-length album, Still Life, in April 2017 via Domino Records.

Manchester five-piece PINS have announced a new tour for November with tickets on sale now. The band also premiered a short film of their EP Bad Thing recently.

The new live dates follow the band’s recent spring headline tour, which included a sold out show at London’s Moth Club, and their support shows with Maximo Park. Tour dates go on sale at 10am on Friday 21st July.

PINS new short film, which was made by Olivier Richomme and Sarah Jenny Johnson and executively produced by the band themselves, features 5 separate videos for each track on the band’s Bad Thing EP which fit together to make up one 20-minute film. The footage, featuring a guest performance from actress Alice Barry, is largely filmed in the band’s hometown of Manchester and portrays a vibrant place full of liberal minded friendly people and is a true celebration of a wonderful city.

PINS say, “In many ways the video is an ode to Manchester, from filming on the eerie surrounding moors to partying in a former public toilet, Temple Bar, with Shameless' own Alice Barrie! We filmed in a few of our favourite venues and bars in Manchester and we just got to have some drinks and listen to music whilst the filming went on. We also filmed on the moors as we wanted some contrast and calm to the chaotic scenes of the night before. The snow was perfect, and so was the pastel sunset”.

Director Olivier Richomme says, “It's been such a treat to get to be involved in this ambitious project, so many people came to help us and it wouldn't have been possible without their support. It feels like we all created this film together and the creative process was really instinctive and natural. We were privileged to get Alice Barry involved and she was such a dream to work with.”

PINS new EP Bad Thing was released recently and was recorded in the Scottish Borders last October and produced by Mark Vernon and PINS. The EP and film opens with the teasing Bad Thing before moving into the addictive Aggrophobe, featuring Iggy Pop’s iconic vocal, leading onto the chant-like pop of All Hail and the dreamy and synth-laden In Nightmares, before ending with PINS own take on Dead Souls originally by Joy Division.

For over a decade, Nika Roza Danilova has been recording music as Zola Jesus. She’s been on Sacred Bones Records for most of that time, and Okovi marks her reunion with the label.

Fittingly, the 11 electronics-driven songs on Okovi share musical DNA with her early work on Sacred Bones. The music was written in pure catharsis, and as a result, the sonics are heavy, dark, and exploratory. In addition to the contributions of Danilova’s longtime live bandmate Alex DeGroot, producer/musician WIFE, cellist/noise-maker Shannon Kennedy from Pedestrian Deposit, and percussionist Ted Byrnes all helped build Okovi’s textural universe.

With Okovi, Zola Jesus has crafted a profound meditation on loss and reconciliation that stands tall alongside the major works of its genre. The album peaks of tragedy with great wisdom and clarity. Its songs plumb dark depths, but they reflect light as well.



Important information regarding the cancelled Green Day show on July 4th:
06/07/2017


We would like to say again how sorry and disappointed we were that the Green Day show on July 4th could not go ahead as planned.

Weather issues cancelled this show and the investigation into whether some sub contractors could have done more or could have been better prepared is currently being carried out. Until we receive statements in from all parties involved in the event it is unfair to make a further statement or contact everyone directly.

Ticket holders for the event can be assured that they will be able to receive refunds from point of purchase; they have been processed and will be with you within 10 working days.

We would however like to address the false rumours circulating:

All statements made so far are correct, and were made as soon all parties agreed on the decision to cancel, there was no deliberate decision to stall or was there any reason to stall the announcement

One rigger did have a small accident on site from a low height several days before it was not an issue related to a stage fault and he was off site for a check up and back on site that incident was reported to all relevant bodies. NO rigger fell from the roof on the show day, it did not happen.

All parts of the PA / Lights were there and the stage build started seven days before the event day. The heavy rain over night and in the morning made for unsafe conditions on stage for Green Day to load in at their scheduled time of 6am. Pictures circulating do not reflect the true build of the stage on the morning of July 4th as they were taken after the derig had started due to the issues encountered described with the stage. Therefore no stage barrier was in place as it had been removed to start the de rig.

As mentioned above we are not able to comment further on this until we have the full statements in from the parties involved in the event. We will of course make a full and detailed statement once we have them in and concluded.

Milburn embark on their biggest ever UK tour in November 2017 to celebrate the release of their third studio album.

As comebacks go, the return of milburn has been a pretty bloody successful one. What began as a handful of one off shows early last year culminated in a self curated festival on Sheffield's famous Don Valley Bowl in front of 8,000 adoring fans in June 2017. To put the whole thing in perspective, in just over a year the band have sold a little under 20,000 tickets in their hometown (no that's not a typo) and a further 10,000 around the rest of the UK. Add to that a raucous European tour and a number of high profile festival slots, then you begin to understand just what this band still means to people.

This is not just another 'pay the mortgage off' style calculated comeback either. To cement their place as one of the UK's best guitar bands, the lads now return with an accomplished third studio album which was produced by the highly rated Bill Ryder-Jones at Parr Street studios in Liverpool (set for release on 15/09/17). With support from Steve Lamacq and Shaun Keaveney at BBC 6 music, it's clear that milburn are still making music that is as relevant as ever. Hear the new stuff alongside the old favourites here in November.

For anyone that’s ever been to see us live, you know the connection we have with our fanbase is a special one.
