ROCK & BLUES
Bar. College of Art. Lauriston Place, 229 1442. £3 (2.50). Not a trio forthe faint-hearted. Quicksand are straight-edgers (1 think) from New York. incorporating ex-members of Youth of Today and Gorilla Biscuits (a great name). and they‘re supported by two bands much closer to home; Brighton's Sleep. who have a touch of the Chilii Peppers about them. and Glasgow‘s Dawson. who play like a hardcore band gone Beeiheart and are attracting admirers nationwide.

WEDNESDAY 6 Glasgow
I Kith and Kin. The Bachelor Pad, The Pralines and A Chocolate Momlng King Tut‘s Wah Wah Hut. 272a St Vincent Street, 221 5279. 8pm. £5 (£3.50). Another gig for Oxfam Music Week. Kith and Kin with their country/foik/roots music prove to be the odd ones out in an evening displaying indie talent of varying
levels of eccentricity. Well worth the money, and surely there‘s no need to emphasise the worthiness of the cause. I Eddie Basherville Jordanhili College. 76 Southbrae Drive, 950 3000. This is the latest guise for the ‘chameleon-like' Ed Banger. prominent in Manchester in the late 705 and early 805 with histwo creations. the Nosebleeds and Slaughter and The Dogs.

Rhythms you‘re unlikely to hear at the River Detectives gig, or anywhere else this evening.
I The Acoustic River Detectives Moray House Student Union. Holyrood Road. 556 8455. 8pm. £5 guests, £4 students. Just the twosome tonight, but no doubt it will be a packed venue all the same. Whilst hardly shifting mega-units, their debut LP was warmly received by the Scot-pop fraternity.
I Call Me Clive, Everything and Purple High Venue, Calton Road, 557 3073. These local triple bills at The Venue seem to be paying their way mighty well. and covering a lot of musical ground as well. This one provides another chance to see Call Me Clive, in case you've missed the numerous other gigs they‘ve done recently.

I The Light, Marsha Fresca and Rhythm Chillun Glasgow College, 70 Cowcaddens Road, 332 0681. 9pm. £2.50. Students and guests. A varied bill for this NUS bash. The Light are already well known fortheir sparkling pop and occasionally destructive bent, while Marsha Fresca soon will be well known for their funky p0p/rock and HM chic. Sole East Coast representatives Rhythm Chillun have built up deserved acclaim for their more traditional soul/funk. Reported tensions within the band, however. suggest that it might be worth double-checking to see if they‘re still on the bill.
