I The McClusltey Brothers Glasgow School of Art, 167 Renfrew Street, 3320681. 9pm. Their first full band gig since Mayfest, and one which should help them towards their long deserved record deal.
I Baby's Got a Gun Venue, Calton Road, 557 3073. Rebel-rousing rockers interviewed in our last issue — and a band that has already gone through the experience of supporting Bowie (at Livingston), and carried it offwith dynamic aplomb.
I The Two Saints and The American Ruse Basin Street, Haymarket Terrace, 337 1006. 8pm—midnight. Being from London, The American Ruse aren’t actually American, but The Two Saints are. Friday nights here are a good place to check out indie and aspiring indie bands.
I Swing Shitt Negociants, Lothian Street, 225 6313. 9.45pm. Free. Accessible-sounding Eighties rock, with a new demo and a rash of gigs coming soon. Look out for a new name for the band as well.
I The Barrelhouse Shellis Preservation Hall, Victoria Street, 226 3816. £1 after

I Double Trouble Brag at the Cotton Club, 7 Scott Street. 332 0712. 10.30pm. Not a reference to Brag DJ 5 Dave Ross and George Bowie — but the name of an act who are currently enjoying not a little club and chart success.

Those who can only remember ‘When You’re in Love with a Beautiful Woman‘, take note, and bearin mind that Ray Sawyer (the guy with the eyepatch) is now the only original member.

I The Ramones and The Almighty Barrowland, 244 Gallowgate, 552 4601. 7.30pm.
