Trolley Reﬂections. Cumbernauld. 7pm. £1. Indie stalwarts The Salt Cellar have been keeping an excessively low proﬁle of late. so now is the time to discover whether their sabbatical has given them any fresh ideas.

Plus the Demo Disco. organized in conjunction with Noise Box.

with the Peter Pan syndrome. However. even if BMX Bandits never manage to stretch their sticky fingers in the same pie as ex-Bandit Norman‘s Teenage Fanclub. they‘ll still be the kookiest and sexiest band in Bellshill. Eugene Vaseline DJs tonight.
I The Light and The Vindicators King Tut‘s Wah Wah llut. 272a St Vincent Street. 221 5279. 1()pm. £3. The Light and Burn One Records in general look set to benefit handsomely (and deservedly) from the Renfrew Ferry showcase gig at New Music World. With a bit of a distribution boost.

I Excalibur Studio 55. Bruce 1 lotel. Cornwall Street. East Kilbride. 035 522 9771. 8pm. £2. Part ofa dying breed of ‘good honest rock bands' sticking like Araldite to the values of mid-70s AOR.l think they‘re preaching to an extinct market. but recent exposure as support to Saxon may well prove me wrong.

I Swim King Tut‘s Wah Wah llut. 272aSt Vincent Street. 221 5279. 10pm. £3. Recent signings to MCA with an album on the way.
