0 Cameo Playhouse Theatre,
Greenside Place, 557 2590. 7.30pm. £8.50, £7.50, £6.50. Tickets for previous date still valid. Only Scottish date of the ‘Word Up’ stars, renowned for their stage show and the codpieced Larry Blackmon. Veterans of heaps of albums in the States, only now getting their long-deserved British recognition. 0 Tam White and The Dexters Preservation Hall, Victoria Street, 226 3816. £1 after 9pm. See Sun 20. 0 Billy Jones Lord Darnley, West Port, 229 4341. 10pm. Free. See Sun 20.

MONDAY 28 Edinburgh
0 Squeeze Queen’s Hall, Clerk Street, 668 3456. Saw Jools Holland in last year’s Festival, so there‘s not a hell of a lot that could tempt me to this. The streamlined, Americanized Squeeze move me little, I‘m afraid. 7pm. £6.
0 Powerhouse Boogie Band The Venue, Calton Road, 557 3073. 9pm. £2 (£1.50). The soundtrack to my nightmares one particularly ill-advised night in Aberdeen Ritzy’s. Vaguely remember fairly competent rockist R&B.
0 Origin Sins Lord Darnley, West Port, 229 4341. 10pm. Free. Glasgow band, referred to as ‘alternative rock’, they wrote and recorded the soundtrack for an anti-drugs video and have recorded a three-track video with Clyde Cablevision.

TUESDAY 29 Glasgow
0 Ege Bam Yasi/Careless Whiskas Stirling University, Stirling. 9pm. Stirling’s most eccentric sons are back. A new line-up, and a recent tape received ( in an eggbox of course) suggests there is still a lot of fun to be had. This event also features a fashion show.
0 Origin Sins Henry Afrika’s, York Street. 10.30pm. A band whoSe music seems to excel in the live format.
0 Showaddywaddy Glasgow University Union, University Avenue. Special event for freshers. Students (mature) only. Once again, far too easy a target. What I want to know is will their label-mates H20 be supporting?
o Loudon Wainwright Ill Grand Hall, Kilmarnock. 7.30pm. Part ofa Scottish tour, and well worth going to see, even ifyou are not a fan. A new single, ‘Your Mother and I’ is out to coincide with the tour.
0 Mr Rhythm Lord Darnley, West
Port, 229 4341. 10pm. Free. Rockin’ Blues.

0 Willie Logan Canny Man‘s. Morningside Road, 447 1484. 8.30pm. Free.
WEDNESDAY 30 Glasgow
0 Hearts and Minds Fixx Bar, Miller Street. 10pm. Free. Excellent band, who will by the time of this gig have released their debut single ‘Turning Turtle‘. You never know — this may very well be the last chance you get to see them for nothing.
0 Del Amitri (to be confirmed), The Venue, Calton Road, 557 3073. 7.30pm. A successful tour ofthe States behind them and a brace of new songs ready to be released, maybe this time Del Amitri will set
— Britain alight. God knows, they’ve
waited long enough.
0 The Bootsle Tootsie Band Lord Darnley, West Port, 229 4341. 10pm. Free. Rockin’ blues.
0 Jump Fresh, Waterloo Place, 556 2839. 9pm. Free. Pop.

THURSDAY 1 Glasgow
0 H20 Napoleons, Merrylee Road. 9pm. £1 . Good value for £1 — a whole set for less than the price of Ian Donaldson’s solo single! Seriously, H20 are a hard working and industrious live band — and they still have a few good songs.
0 Hot Sub Club, Jamaica Street, 248 4600. 10pm. Came very close to signing a record deal last year on the strength ofexcellent songs like Heart On A String, before some members left. Regrouping has taken place — so it will be interesting to see ifthey have retained their sparkle.
0 Zzazz Kilroy Platinis, West Nile Street. 9pm. Free.
0 Billy Mclsaac Riverside Tavern, Waddell Court. 9pm. Free.
0 Apres Ski Jarvey‘s Inn, Kelso Street. 9pm. Free. Three residencies to end a busy fortnight . . .

0 I Should Cocoa Fresh, Waterloo Place, 55601 1 1. 9pm. Free. Accessible pop.
0 Billy Jones Lord Darnley, West Port, 229 4341 . 10pm. Free. See Sun 20.
