SATURDAY 19 § Glasgow
I The Pastels (TBC) Glasgow College. 70 Cowcaddens Road. 3320681. 9pm. Students and guests. The original parochial popsters seem content still to eke out a living within one city's boundaries. yet their reputation warrants more widespread activity. Perhaps l‘m deluding myself. but have The Pastels actually done anything worth getting out of bed for recently? And who still goesto see them. apart from the Friends ofthe Pastels?
I Power 01 Dreams King Tut‘s Wah Wah Hut. 272a St Vincent Street. 221 5279. 10pm. £3.50. Highly spirited indie rock band brimming with confidence and displaying a lyrical cutting edge that puts their more seasoned contemporaries well in the shade. Live. their ‘wall ofguitars‘ sound steams along without a passing thought for its stunned audience huffing on the sidelines. Blink and you'll miss l them — so don't blink.

I A Whole New Jungle and The Genius Freaks Basin Street. HaymarketTerrace. 337 1006. £1. A Whole New Jungle are reactivated after several dorant years.

The Genius Freaks hail from London. and that‘s about all we know.

I N-Joi Vertigo. 10pm. £4. Excessively trendy newcomers who recently had a mini chart hit with ‘Anthem'. Mooted as Britain‘s answer to Deee-Lite. the single was not surprisingly an enormous club smasheroonie. The place to be seen tonight. not least because this is alive performance rather than a PA.

THURSDAY 24 Glasgow
I The Darkside Glasgow College. 70_ Cowcaddens Road. 3320681. Students and guests. The problem with Spacemen 3 and their many offshoots and reincarnations is that despite making entrancing records. they‘re extremely unfulfilling once stuck on a stage. After ten minutes you wish they‘d either shake a fringe or quit while they're ahead. Will The Darkside fit the pattern? They have all the musical credentials certainly and some very nice haircuts indeed. but the album All That Noise did have a few surprises. so let‘s keep on waiting. anticipating. . .
