I Fields ot the Nephilim Barrowland. 244 (iallowgate. 552 4601. 7.30pm. £7 plus booking fee. Tickets front Just the Ticket. Virgin. Union Street. 226 4679. It‘s very difficult to surmount prejudice and snobbery when you‘re confronted with an act as unimaginative and derivative as Fields of the Nephilim. with theirobvious hand-me down philosophy. but perhaps the unfathomable appeal lies in their rare hidden gems like ‘I’sychonaut‘. which take on a considerable sonic power in the right
I Technotronic and Kenny Thomas The Tunnel. 11pm. £5. At last you can discover exactly how to pump up the jam or how to get up and get busy simultaneously. This gig is of interest not just because it will reveal whether or not groups like Technotronic are viable live acts but also as it sees the public inauguration of Glasgow‘s newest rock/club venue. Support. Kenny Thomas. recently ‘created a buzz‘ with his single ‘Outstanding'.

I Glasgow and Crisis Studio 55. Bruce Hotel. Corny. all Street. East Kilbride.035 522 9771. 8pm. £2. Two-and-a-halfyears on from the imaginatively titled debut album 04]. Glasgow remain blissfullv ignorant of musical development. by virtue of their propensity .owards stagnant MOR-type rock. Local thrash band Crisis offer a bit more in the way ofdynamism.
I Dzrlc Tentacles Fury Murry‘s. 96 Maxwell Street. 221 651 1. 10pm. £3. ‘Long jamming sessions at festivals‘. ‘extcnded instrumental improvisations' — sounds suspiciously like you could grow a heard by the end ofthe set. More notable than their ‘legcndary underground status‘ is the fact that this is the first major promotion undertaken by the Glasgow Musicians" Network . a collective who seek to encourage bands to gain total control over their work.
I Big Strauss Outhouse. 1155 Cathcart Road. 649 0184. 10pm. Free. Winnersof the 1989 LLsr/McEwans Lager demo tape competition. who hopefully found their delegate status (nothing to do with us. by the way) at New Music World to their advantage and made a few contacts.

I Iron Maiden and Wollsbane Playhouse Theatre. Greenside Place. 557 2590. Diamond geezers. especially that Bruce Dickinson. who must still wince at the universal panning his first foray into prose — The Adventures of Lord Iffy Boalruce— received. Still. he‘s back to what he does best; taking in great lungfuls of airand expelling them with the force of()zzy
Osbourne on steroids. Only perhaps with a little more venom this time.
I Mega City 4 and Joyrider Venue. Calton Road. 557 3073. Joyrider is the band that 50 per cent of The Cateran went on to become after the latter‘s recent demise. and Mega City 4 have been toiling around the circuit for what seems like a longtime now without making substantial inroads into the mass consciousness. while others have streaked past them. Perhaps they should get a Paul Oakenfeld remix on the boil.
