Theory of a Deadman / The Crave – Glasgow Queen Margaret Union

Theory of a Deadman / The Crave – Glasgow Queen Margaret Union

[For more pictures, see the sets on Flickr for The Crave and Theory of a Deadman] We had no idea of the support for this gig and therefore the stage times, so I gave them a call earlier in the evening. I got a wonderfully unhelpful (though he did try!) [...]

Oldie but Goldie: Pestilence – Testimony of the Ancients

Oldie but Goldie: Pestilence – Testimony of the Ancients

Number two in my occasional little “ooh, I forgot how good this album is” series is Testimony of the Ancients by Dutch band Pestilence. I’ve got it on my phone and it gets regular plays in the car. The history behind the band and album is interesting. Without repeating too [...]

Reel Big Fish – Glasgow Garage

Reel Big Fish – Glasgow Garage

[full gallery of photos in this Flickr set] I missed openers The JB Conspiracy, which is a shame. Main support Orange didn’t get a great reception, though. I saw most of their set and they were OK but nothing brilliant. No faulting the effort they put into the set, and it was a [...]
