City of Glass 011:
CUTTINGS (final show)
Very sadly this will be Cuttings' final show. They make a racket reminiscent of numerous excellent bands but perhaps most notably Polvo and Archers of Loaf. Jagged, interwoven guitars and quick changes of tempo lead to a sound that can't really be heard anywhere else in Edinburgh.
Self-described as 'survival specialists', Fatalists have been one of Edinburgh's reliably excellent bands for the best part of a decade now. Their latest album Wayward Navigation sounds like the bastard child of the Melvins and the Jesus Lizard, ever-shifting and unpredictable.
One of the best bands to emerge from the central belt in the last year, L-Space write dream-pop influenced by Radiohead, Philip Glass, Portishead and much more. Delighted to have them playing!
Scotland's hardest working musician and promoter, Kapil has been gaining a lot of well-deserved excellent press this year, with appearances across the UK, including at the inaugural Wrong Fest in Liverpool alongside Bo Ningen, The Cosmic Dead, Part Chimp and many many more. He once described himself to me as 'the Dillinger Escape Plan and Rufus Wainwright having a fight in a bin' and that's enough for me, although I think comparisons to Einsturzende Neubaten are closer to the mark. Album imminent.
