Greenside Place. 557 2590. 7.30pm. £7. £6. Their last album may have been greeted with indifference. but this isthe group who gave us ‘Don't Fear the Reaper‘. and so can be forgiven their indulgences. Up to a point.

THURSDAY 9 Glasgow
I King Swamp Fury Murrys. 96 Maxwell Street. 2216511. 10.30pm. I liked the first single. Is This Love. despite itsobvious debt to every rock and roll cliche that ever existed. The album. sadly is just the same all the way through. and becomes boring after about two songs. Don‘t discount the possibility of a more exciting live show though. (See panel)
I Fini Tribe Rico's. 2 Anne Street. Greenock. 10pm. Deservinga mention due to the scarcity of their live performances. This should be both different and interesting.
I The Waking Hour La Tanicre. 15 Fox Street. 221 4844. 9pm. Free.
I Anthrax and Living Colour Playhouse Theatre. Greenside Place. 557 2590. SOLD OUT. Not surprising. really. as Anthrax are the kings of the metal/hip hop fusion. and send themselves up rotten. and Living Colour got a decisive critical thumbs-up with their debut last year. Can black men play the whites? You better believe it.
I The Beautiful Suit. The Runaway Trains and This Is It Cirkus Club. Venue. Calton Road. 557 3073. As far as we know. this is the lineup for this round of the Cirkus Club. sponsored by Tennents Live. though there has been confusion. The beguiling pop of The Beautiful Suit is recommended.
