FALSE BLISS - is launching their album Ritual Terrains through Scottish Fiction on April 8th and they're throwing a party to celebrate. Recorded during a hazy, mist-filled week in autumn 2018, the album touches on themes of loss and adventure while traversing musical terrain previously uncovered by Tortoise, Fugazi, Sonic Youth etc.
THE HONEY FARM - Potentially the first and only and by default greatest Scottish female rap group of all time.
MNDMTH - Opening up is Stu Brown aka MNDMTH. MNDMTH challenges the traditional role of the drummer by putting the drums at the fore and expanding the sonic palette and possibilities of the drum kit. Triggers and software allow the drums to become a means of controlling and manipulating electronic sounds and visuals in real time to generate an immersive, multi-layered, audio-visual performance which steps outside of the usual conventions of drumming, while remaining true to the intense rhythmic drive that only this instrument can provide.
Intermission entertainment supplied by the debut performance by electronic knowledge master, DJ Liquid Shoes.

Upstairs presents Adam Stafford Album Launch
DOORS 7:00pm // £7 OTD

Adam is launching a (very) limited edition cassette release of his brand new album, "The Acid Bothy" with support from Stephen McLaren, Errant Boy and Shards.

ADAM STAFFORD - is a musician, film director and label founder (Wise Blood Industries) from Falkirk, Central Scotland. Stafford is known for his intense and energetic live performances which incorporate soul-pop, post-punk and a capela experimentalism to dizzying effect. “Adam Stafford’s new album is a rich and haunting record of intelligence, beauty, depth and darkness – it’s a monumental piece of work.” - 5/5 The Skinny

STEPHEN MCLAREN - Despite having his debut album, "We Used To Go Raving", chart in at a very respectable no.10 in the is this music? Scottish Albums of 2018 list, he's largely stopped playing those songs claiming that the new ones are better. Thankfully, he's still gracious enough to play the title track from it at least, otherwise no-one would bother showing up. Got to give the punters what they want. He will.

ERRANT BOY - Sean, Chris, and Sarrah have been drilling pop-classic holes in venues for a couple of years now, releasing 2 albums along the way in reasonably prolific style. Both of those are outstanding pieces of work, the latest of which ("Memory Fractures") got a well-deserved 4-star review in The Skinny, as well as widespread thumbs-up from many notable bloggers and respected online publications.

SHARDS - Well. Best get there early for debut performance from this lot. Blink and you'll miss it; and you'll be sorry too.
