I Cud Queen Margaret Union, University Gardens, 339 9784. 8pm. £4. Students and
guests. The rough edges have been sanded down and the eccentricity diluted, but Cud remain one of the country’s truly independent bands. Despite others' attempts to align their excellent Leggy Mambo album with the indie dance phenomenon, they still retain their idiosyncratic sound, helped no doubt by the distinctive howl of enigmatic frontman Carl Puttnam.

I Go King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, 272a St Vincent Street, 221 5279. Go have obviously enjoyed their recent stints at King Tut's and have hired the venue themselves to put on tonight's show.

I Glasgow Songwriters Blackfriars, Bell Street, 552 5924. 9pm. £2 (£1). About ten of the dozen performers who appear on the Glasgow Songwriters compilation LP strut their stuff in a launch party for the record. Good value, we think.

I Dundertunk Pzazz, J arvey Street. Edinburgh's funk-thrash kings are building up a solid legion of fans in their hometown and seem certain to move on to bigger things soon. Whether Faith No More are quaking in their boots hasn‘t yet been ascertained.

I The BMX Bandits and The Wake King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, 272a St Vincent Street, 221 5279. 10pm. Recently returned from a jaunt to Norway, The BMX Bandits continue to pick up sizeable crowds on their frequent appearances in Glasgow, and seem to be approaching greater success than ever. The Wake celebrate the indie success of their Make It Loud album with a typically delicate support set.
I The Wild River Apples Strathclyde University Union, 90 John Street, 552 1895. 9pm. £2.50. Students and guests. The popularity of the Wild River Apples on home ground is hardly a debatable issue, and attendance tonight is likely to be encouraging owing to their lack of recent live appearances, but what is irritating is the fact that over 18 months on a major label has produced just one extremely dull single. At this rate Ican’t see the rest of the world rushingto embrace them as wholeheartedly as their home town.
I Whyclli'le The Tunnel, 84 Mitchell Street, 204 1000. 11pm. £6. Along with other newcomer Carlton, Whycliffe is being touted as the latest and greatest British soul hope. The voice is certainly rich and masterful, but the songs are nothing to shout about — justTerence Trent D‘Arby without the acrobatics or the uptempo beat.
I Gargleblud. Electric Daisies and Session liead Cumbernauld Theatre , Braehead Road, 67 32887. 7.45pm. £3. A Noise Box event. More stomach—churning pseudo-theatrical shenanigans from the sickest mothers in Scotland. Gargleblud‘s reputation for dire onstage deeds undoubtedly precedes them. Pity everyone forgets to mention the music.
I Fala Brasil Madeira Bar, 106Torrisdale Street, 423 7961. 8pm. £2 (£1 .50). This

I Dakota Plains Moray House Student Union, Holyrood Road, 556 8455. 9pm. From Newcastle.
I Sharlot and The Rogues Basin Street, Haymarket Terrace, 337 1006. Didn‘tthey split, leaving just ‘The Rogues"? A possible reunion, but don‘t take my word for it.

SUNDAY 3 Glasgow
I The Stranglers King Tut‘s Wah Wah Hut, 272a St Vincent Street, 221 5279. 7pm. £7.50. By the time you read this, this
' gig is likely to be sold out. The Stranglers
minus Hugh Cornwell but plus a singer and a guitarist head back to basics. Worth the money for curiosity value alone, and the chance to see how they cope in an intimate environment.
I Steelhearl Studio, 12 Shuttle Street, Paisley, 889 6867. 9.30pm. £1.50. Heavy rock band who will soon be taking the Little Angels support slot.
I Big George and the Business Whitehills Farm, 2 Scholars Gate, East Kilbride, 32 35569. 7pm. £2. A new regular Sunday night live slot kicks off with the reliable blues trio.
