SUNDAY 25 Glasgow
I The Big Dish. Love and Money and The McClusltey Brothers The Pavilion. 121 Renfield Street. 332 1846. 7.30pm. Major Anti Poll Tax gig ofthe month. with very little chance of tickets being left by the time of publication. given the pulling power of each of the acts. Much to recommend it though: the first Big Dish gig since they signed to WIiA. and Love and Money‘s first (ilasgow appearance this year. Should be brilliant.

TUESDAY 27 Glasgow I The Wild River Apples Napoleons. 128
Merrylee Road. 637 5238. 9pm. Free. In all probability a signed band by the time you read this. and the recent gig at the Fixx shows their newest songs.

I The Thieves Fury Murrys. 96 Maxwell Street. 221 651 1. 10.30pm. Third gig ofthe fortnight for a hard working and locally popular act.
I Throwing Muses and Band olSusans Queen's I lall. South Clerk Street.668 2019. 7.30pm. £6.50. Kristinllersh's stream-of-consciousness mewling can drive some folk up the wall and deliver others to the gates ofenlightened wisdom. ()r if neither of those alternatives suits you. just settle back and let the Muses' out-of-kilter rock remind you just why they've been hailed as one of the most inventive bands in the States. Band of Susans kick up one impressive riot ofa noise. though maybe a little much for ears more delicately attuned to the Muses.
I The McCluslrey Brothers and The Wild River Apples Venue. Calton Road. 557 3073. A welcome reappearance in the Capital for two of (ilasgow's most worthwhile acts. The McCIUskeys‘ songs have a way of making friends with first-time listeners. They should be more widely-known than they are. The Venue will most likely be filled up with punters curious to see the Apples after the stir they've been making. And yes. singer Gwen does indeed have a fine voice.
