4 Jun: Lol Coxhill & Raymond MacDonald Album Launch
Lol Coxhill’s wide-ranging interests and playing styles led him to work with artists ranging from Rufus Thomas to the Damned, taking in Bridget St John, Kevin Ayers and Judy Dyble along the way – and that’s before we even begin to consider his work in the improv and jazz fields. He also formed a bond with musicians and friends in Glasgow on the frequent visits he made to the city across time.
During the last of those, in July 2008, Lol recorded an album’s worth of material with fellow saxophonist Raymond MacDonald which, for various reasons, remained unheard – until now!
We present Morphometry, an album of saxophone duets by Lol and Raymond, with the front cover woodcut created by Ian Barrett, sleeve design by Jen Davies and produced by John Cavanagh.
In addition to the launch of the album, the evening of Sunday 4th June at the Old Hairdressers will be a celebration of Lol’s connections to Glasgow; guests will include George Burt, John Cavanagh, Raymond MacDonald, Una MacGlone, Gerry Rossi and Mr Coxhill will be heard both vocally and instrumentally in a piece created specially for the occasion.
The show starts at 7.30pm, entry is £5 and the Morphometry lp (with each copy including a cd version) will be available at a special launch night only price of £20.

Time: 8 til late
Featuring: Spacehaul v Instruo (Drums v Modular electronics)
We are starting a new event for Glasgow’s thriving Modular Synth Community.
It turns out that Glasgow is a hot bed for this type of home built sound machine and musicians and enthusiasts all over the city have been getting into modular in a big way. Glasgow is also the home of Rub a Dub one of the UK’s most successful electronic music specialists who have supported small manufacturers of modular synthesizers and the community for 25 years.
The Drum-Tronics project, coming to The Old Hairdressers on the 29th of June is designed to bring the community together.
The project was devised by Ben Martin, a drummer known for his involvement with the Dredd Movie soundtrack along and music projects Spacehaul and NAO alongside Jason Lim of Instruo, known as the brains behind some of the finest custom built modules in the UK and USA.
Expect to hear electronic sounds blended with experimental beats, break beats and techno all played to a backdrop of visuals and a set from Spacehaul.
