I didn't say he was from East Kilbride per say, I said his mum lived there. Honestly, ye'd make sh*te lawyers the lot o' yez.
Here's the quote...
"Jack Bruce is from East Kilbride (or at least his maw used to live next door to Joe MacIvor, a retired policeman who used to have a four track in his spare room)."
So there. :-)

Re Tom Russell...Mr. R and his wife run a B&B next to Palacerigg Country Park in Cumbernauld. My mate stayed with them for a coupla months after he (my pal, not Mr R.) got chucked out by his wife. IIRC Mrs R. has a pottery business out there too. Me pal says they're a lovely couple and Tom spent a few minutes with him every day chatting about music.

Aye fair do's but you can't just say

"5+5=9 (or maybe it disnae)"

then no expect folk to correct the premise if it is indeed wrong! You can't expect DickyHart and onyirtodd to sit on the guilty knowledge that he's actually from Bishopbriggs because you've previously built in the insurance policy of saying "at least" to indicate you may be wrong.

I can't believe I'm sitting typing this pish.

I doubt any of us can believe we're sitting reading it.

Venues - current and lost and stories pertaining to...

Postby Cyclo2000 » Tue Oct 23, 2007 8:16 am

Just wot it says on the tin....

Lost
The Apollo - First gig I ever went to, Lindisfarne at the Apollo in 74.
Tiffanys - Adam and the Ants 79 or 80, you can say what you like about afterwards but there was a moment when they were the best live act in the country. About a month later I saw Bow Wow Wow at the garage supported by Jimmy the Hoover. Out of all those Burundi Black style drum bands the Ants were head and shoulders the best.
Maxwell Plums - Sort of place to see Jamie Barnes and Cochise on a Saturday afternoon.
Nightmoves (Rooftops?) - I saw the Cocteau twins at Nightmoves. Unlkely but true
The Plaza - Louise Weiner outta Sleeper winked at me when I was going to the lavvy.

I'm sure some of the other guys'll be much better at this game than me. There must be a dozen bars and a handleful of other venues. Is Fury Murrays still there?

First time I saw Gun live was at the Mayfair in 1989 - It was the same night as their debut single, "Better Days", entered the top 40 so they were on a bit of a high (whether it was chemically assisted I couldn't possibly say).

Saw them several times in the following years both headlining and supporting much larger acts including Def Leppard and the Rolling Stones

Second best ever gig ive been to was my first, Aztec Camera at Pavillion, 1983.

Kevin McDermott Orchestra were good

and Love and Money

Blue Nile, Linn were so impressed with them, they set up their own record label. (hmm nothing at all to do with showing off your products with some atmospheric music) Saw Paul Buchanan last year at Fruitmarket doing an impromptu song with Chris Botti. His voice makes your skin crawl - in a nice way of course! Heres a link to them at another gig

I did used to know lots of information on bands of that time but they have now been replaced by knowledge of shoes :(

I played at Nightmoves in 1984 with a group called The Floor. REM had played there the week before and I was actually on the guest list but sadly couldn't make it along as I was recording that night. One of my regrets.

It was an exciting place to play but a bit grim behind the scenes and someone pinched my walkman from the dressing room while we were playing.

On the subject of Glasgow music, the 15th Celtic Connections Festival has been launched today. Get your Steve Earle tickets before they sell out!! I got mine! :D :D :D

http://www.celticconnections.com/

For anyone who's never been I can highly recommend the Transatlantic Sessions on the final Sunday night with Aly Bain, Phil Cunningham, Eddi Reader and a whole whack more. Tremendous musicianship, variety and one of the best concerts of the year in this city.

i vaguely remember the floor. just guessing here from memory but were you not connected to elliot davies?, along with wet wet wet and one other band who's name escapes me. perhaps it was a gig you played together.
pretty sure the night REM played nightmoves the stranglers played the apollo, i loved the stranglers so i went there, my mates went to see REM...my regret too!!! :roll:

Elliot Davis

Postby Cyclo2000 » Wed Oct 24, 2007 9:24 am

Elliot used to manage a boy called Baz Boom! who he was grooming for stardom. At least that's what he told me he was grooming him for. We had a band called Green isaac on our roster (roster! ha! it was them and the Loveless and that was it!) and they and Baz duked it out over a publishing deal. Don't think either of them got signed in the end.

Elliot lived up stairs from a pal of mine in Spears Wharf. When he had the fire he ruined me mates flat as well.
