NEW L.F? ’MANIA' OUT NOW ON ALBUM + CASSETTE
INCLUDES THE SINGLE 'A MILLION THINGS' ON 7" ‘
7.30pm. Rising new Edinburgh-based reggae band. who surprised many by packin‘ 'em in the last time they played here. and everyone seemed to have a good time. About the only band around here playing good ethnic-sounding rootsy reggae.
o The Big Wheel Fresh. Waterloo Bar. Waterloo Place. 556 2839. 9pm. Free. Incredibly commercial-sounding pop. but they haven‘t yet got the songs to go with it. Sound like they're trying hard.
0 Billy Jones Lord Darnley. West Port. 229 4341. 10pm. Free. See Sun 6.
O Sheer Greed Preservation Hall. Victoria Street. 226 3816. 9.30pm. Free.

0 The Jesus and Mary Chain Barrowlands. London Road. 7.30pm. £5. First Glasgow gig since February 1986. this is promoting the new album Darklands. which. as all the best ads say. features the hit singles ‘April Skies‘ and ‘Happy When It Rains‘.
o The Blood Uncles Boulevard Hotel. 1710 Great Western Road. A warm-up for their forthcoming tour with P.l.L. — it's a shame that their Libertine album is so uninspirineg dreadful. Don‘t expect to see them on Top ofthe Pops for some time.
0 Cancer Research Benefit Concert Paisley Town Hall. Paisley. 7pm.
£1 .50. Featuring a good selection of up and coming bands— among them Moving Pictures. Exit The Lemming. Big Step. Rich Free Fall. The Penetrations and The Long Horns. Well worth the money. which is going to the Imperial Cancer Research Fund.

0 Alternative TV The Venue. Calton Road. 557 3073. Doors open 7.30pm. Led by the determinedly unfashionable Mark Perry. ATV were one ofthe most intriguing groups on the punk scene. I predict a load of kids swarming towards this one. eager to know what punk was really All About — and perhaps not liking what they hear. Otherwise. a date for the diary.
0 Westworld Mystery venue. somewhere in Edinburgh. Still a secret as we go to press. but the group who out-Sputniked Sputnik will be playing somewhere in the city tonight.

SATURDAY 12 Glasgow
0 Styng Rites Boulevard Hotel. 1710 Great Western Road. The Styng Rites have been pretty quiet of late. but that doesn‘t alter the fact that - in the right conditions (alcohol ﬂowing freely) they are a great live band. Fun.
0 Boomerang Halt Bar. Woodlands Road. 9pm. Free. The only description lean find ofthem is ‘a modern blues band‘ - which is not very helpful. Go along and find out the truth.
0 Anaconda Platini's. West Nile Street. 9pm. Free. And they are now one week nearer pensionable age!
0 The Straight Men St Georges Bar. St Georges Road. 9pm. Free. It seems to have been a few days since the last Straight Men gig— one can only suggest that they have been on holiday. Watch out — Jamie Barnes and Cochise are currently playing more gigs that you — get busy.
