Greenside Place. 557 2590. 7.30pm. £7. £6. 1 gave up on Guitar Player magazine a long time ago. otherwise I would probably be able to describe in enormously technical detail the wonders that this Swedish heavy metal king can perform upon his fretboard.

I The Soup Dragons Network. West Tollcross. The new Soup Dragons LP sounds a hell of a lot more on the ball than their previous album. This is ourArt.
