Bong Monster - Old Hairdressers, Glasgow 2nd Feb 2012

This is Bong Monster from Glasgow performing live at the Old Hairdressers in Glasgow on 2nd february 2012. Audio recorded by Colin Stewart. Video by Rob Alexander.

Bong Monster are Jodie Cave (electronics), Craig Jackson (electronics, warbly decks), Laurie Pitt (electric drums) and Adam Campbell (synthesizer).

Promise of a debut double album has yet to be seen at time of writing. In the meantime the track on this soundcloud features 3/4 of bong monster (i think?) and is brilliant. http://soundcloud.com/elvistrevor

Jer Reid - Garnethill Multicultural Centre 11.2.12

This was Jer's first solo gig without a guitar. The poem is by Ali Al-Bazaz from the collection Flowers of Flame: Unheard Voices of Iraq

Oh Humanity

Oh humanity
I am your grateful son.
Every man my father's age
Is my father.
Every woman my mother's age
Is my mother.
All these little ones
Are my children,
And this dog
Who sits beside me
Is my friend.
Oh humanity
Oh my family
I am your grateful son.

This performance was at the Garnethill Multicultural Centre, Glasgow on the 11th February 2012 with Cry Parrot presenting Jer Reid, Vialka and The One Ensemble.

It's a slow build so make sure you're relaxed and ready to zone in.

The audio was caught on a portable recorder by Jer and sync'd to the video by me.

W☮rld Peace

This is from the first gig of new Glasgow band World Peace on 16th April 2012. They said they'd had three practices: wrote the first 3 songs in the first, the second 3 songs in the second, then practiced them all in the third. It doesn't get much rawer than this, as it should be.

This was the first time we'd done a gig at the Kind Man on Pollockshaws Road. The full lineup was World Peace, Ben Butler & Mousepad and Ultimate Thrush.
House of John Player and Clara Clara had to pull out last minute due to van breakdown problems.

The gig was really fun and the venue seemed great with a large funky underground venue area, cheap drinks and pool table upstairs! It was £4 entry, 35 people paid in and the money was split between the bands £40 each and £20 was spent on food and petrol for moving gear.

Enjoy the music and don't forget the message. ☮

NEW HOUSE WHITES out now

New album from Gummy Stumps "New House Whites" is now available for download.

This is what the press have said:

"Glaswegian band Gummy Stumps are out there on the edge" Snobs Music

"One of my favourite acts in Glasgow" Working in a Legend

"It’s a shame because if Gummy Stumps took some of the brief moments of brilliance that they have (and they regularly do) and expanded them outwards, we’d have a set of songs that we could listen to and that would have recreational value." Rave Child

Cool!
