We’ve already been shamelessly hawking this round Facebook and Twitter, so here’s the slightly tardy actual blog puff piece.
The Tidal Wave of Indifference is back on the gig trail! After packing out the Wee Red Bar with PAWS, Edinburgh School for the Deaf and more in February, our third gig is right in the middle of summer, again at our favourite venue in the city. Sod the Euros, sod the beer garden, sod yer holidays, get yer butts down to this, it’ll be awesome!
So what have we got?
From the ashes of Come on Gang! and The Kays Lavelle have come The Bad Books. From low key beginnings, they’ve quickly established a reputation as one of the city’s most exciting live bands. Sounding nothing like Mikey Morrison (guitars) or Graeme Anderson’s (vocals/guitars/synths) previous acts, think of something more like Grandaddy or Modest Mouse. That good. Really.
We’d normally fill this space with a wee Bandcamp excerpt, but as yet, the Bad Books have nothing recorded. Tsk.
As good as Loch Awe’s debut album Artificial Life From a Digital Sea was, the band has changed beyond recognition since its releases, adding Brian (Trapped Mice/ex Last Battle) on guitars and multi-instrumentalist Oliver to the original line-up of Matthew, Joy and Jack. Now aiming for something louder and more expansive, they’ve been recording at Chem19, in preparation for a new release later this year. Expect to hear the results at the Wee Red Bar in June. Here’s a number from their first album, but as we said, they’ve moved on somewhat.
Edinburgh lo-fi indie-pop foursome the Spook School have attracted a gaggle of devoted followers in the short time they’ve been together and released two lovely EPs – they are, without question, the perfect fit for the Tidal Wave of Indifference.
Finally, we’ve also got Glasgow two-piece The New Fabian Society involved. We can’t believe their huge-sounding debut EP Exhibition of Love was created by just two people, but it’s awesome and fans of Bauhaus, Interpol and Echo and the Bunnymen will love these guys. Get down early and show them a lot of love!
Because we’re nice we’re also offering up some nice cheap early bird tickets at £4 over at Brown Paper Tickets. But once these are gone, they’re gone and the standard price will be £6 – still a bargain, I’m sure you’ll agree! It’ll be £7 on the door.
