The long awaited launch of Honey & the Herbs new album ‘Gloaming’ on 12″ vinyl.
It is not often one feels like they are listening to something original, nor are new musical genres frequently invented: Gloaming has potential to pave a new path across musical landscapes. Terms like ‘barbershop prog’ and ‘future lounge’ have been coined to try and encompass the sound that Honey & the Herbs create. Their ability to push and pull across genres is truly an experience to behold. It is omni-pop in the making.
“THEIR ENCHANTING SOUND WAS UTTERLY ALLURING…THE COMBINATION OF THE VIRTUOSIC GUITARIST, THE MELLOW BRASS AND BEAUTIFUL FOUR PART HARMONIES CREATED A CHILLED VIBE THAT EVERYONE ENJOYED – IT IS LIKE A SLICE OF HEAVEN” Gigsoup
Bomb Shop Session: Rough Fields / Cru Servers / Ambrosia(@) / ADULT MAGS
Friday 27th May, 8pm
UK electronica label Bomb Shop take over The Old Hairdressers for a session of improvised music, experimental rave and electronics.
Rough Fields is the solo project of UK-based producer James Birchall. Began in 2011 with a series of epic lo-fi cassettes on the Bomb Shop label, the Rough Fields project progressed through expansive song forms on debut album Edge of the Firelight, and surreal, dreamy pop on the High Time EP.
Cru Servers is the audio-visual collaborative project of Glasgow-based brothers Rickie and Jamie McNeill, a duo who individually appear under a plethora of monikers including Fox Gut Daata, Perfumed Head, Burnt Altar and Voices Like Bones. The sounds made are a kind of Poundshop psychedelia, where permo flashbacks bring half memories of Marshall, Theo and Juan, and hardware remains their master and guide.
On stage, Ambrosia(@) is a melding of guitar washes, bass attacks, noise and fantasmic vocals, blending heavy drone with clipped motorik beats and bass.
ADULT MAGS is the pairing of DMC finalist and hardcore legend Dr Weevil (aka Will Baldry) and Rough Fields. The collaborative project sees Birchall feeding the controlled output of his field recording manipulations into Baldry’s Serato setup, for the latter to use as raw material or vinyl manipulation.
12th Isle/Not Moving present: Best Available Technology with Mother (Heated Heads), Bake (All Caps), and Fergus (12th Isle).
Sunday 29th May
Best Available Technology makes music out of his home in Portland, Oregon. He came to a lot of peoples attention back in 2012 when Opal Tapes released a split tape featuring some of his tracks, but he has been exploring all sorts of electronic sonics since the early 90’s, with a shit ton of archival cassette tapes to prove it. Since the Opal Tapes release, labels such as Astro:Dynamics, Further, and Working Nights have committed his sounds to record, using a mixture of new material and stuff retrieved from those old cassettes. Recently, Kevin (as he is known by day) has been performing live with his machines and May 2016 sees him play across the UK as well as in Berlin the night before this Glasgow date.

Anton & The Colts, Ports of Essen, The Rising Souls, Kyle O
Saturday 4th June, 8pm, £5
The start of 2014 saw The Colts take a new direction. Seasoned veterans of the Glasgow folk/acoustic scene, Anton (lead voca…ls/guitar) and Roscoe (guitar/backing vocals) began auditions for new members, eventually recruiting Michael McGill on bass and Dillon Haldane on drums. A slight name change cemented this new beginning – Anton & The Colts was born.
Ports of Essen are a Glasgow based rock n roll band.
To put it bluntly, if you haven’t seen The Rising Souls yet then you must be a poor unfortunate type who lives in a dark cav…e somewhere on the outskirts of nowhere. For the last year this Edinburgh based 3 piece have swept through the Central Belt of Scotland leaving no ear unprovoked. Not to mention universal praise at the 2013 Edinburgh Festival and gigs in London, Essex, Prague and the momentous siege of Larkhall! No gig is too big, no gig too small. Their catchy soulful tunes never fail to impress and their presence on stage is infectiously beautiful.
Kyle O is a 18 year old, acoustic singer/songwriter from Glasgow. His main influences are Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley with a bit of Bob Dylan thrown in for good measure.
