Gig: Scaramanga Six, Cut Your Wings + Great Deeds

SONY DSC

I swear I’m not making this up, but I had a feeling this gig was going to be something weird. It wasn’t the fact that I made a rather good pollo con mole for tea (see above picture) but the fact that a few minutes before I left the house, a horse-drawn carriage just passed by my house.

Gig Review: Black International, Kimmy Yeah, Great Deeds, Ghost of Alaska

The chilly wind was back on full effect on that Saturday night, where the only three reasons to continue walking were the inclination of the hill (downhill – wheeee!), Converse shoes with holes on “dem soles” and Chino “Berrinches” Moreno screaming about holes in the Earth’s surface.

Standard September night. Selah. Still, there was a good reason to go out, as Scotland’s own Black International were gigging and when this duo beckons, you’d better heed the call or suffer the consequences (i.e. getting made fun of by their rather quick wit).

The band will be releasing their new EP Disastrochimp soon, very, very soon.  Great Deeds Website. Facebook. Bandcamp. Soundcloud. Twitter. Last.fm. Continue reading Wake up to Great Deeds

I probably shouldn’t plan gig attendances while surrounded by chemicals in the analytical lab.

In the spirit of inside jokes (I.e. the quest of the perfect name for a label), here’s my caffeine-fuelled review. Continue reading “Review: Tramlines 2012 (the whole weekend)”

EP Round up: Great Deeds, Bayone, Dead Sea Navigators, Zahed Sultan

Hullo hullo, it’s your editor-in-training, Orestes P. Xistos and I’ll be doing this week’s EP round-up. In honour of how good The Avengers are doing, I’ll be assigning some cheap ass nerd taxonomy to these bands. Apologies in advance. Shyeah right.
