plus booking fee. Tickets from Just The Ticket. Virgin. Union Street. 226 4679. See preview. The Mock Turtles were forced to pull out as support but The High and The Apples seek to make their mark with polar strategies — The High gently lavishing the crowd with their entrancing pop and The Apples bludgeoning them with their chanty. funky pop.
I Bo Diddley City Hall. Candleriggs. 7pm. £1 1 . £9.50. Tickets from Ticket Centre. Candleriggs. 227 5511. Atrue star. one of the most durable figures in rock'n‘roll and the hippest guy ever to wear a sheriff‘s badge. That throbbing beat and those immortal chords cast an indelible
inﬂuence on all that came after. Swap your
Inspirals tickets for some of these while you've still got time!

The Buzzeocks may be pushing pension age but they‘re still capable ofachieving some mighty fine combinations of melody and noise (or at least reminding you they once were. with a back catalogue re-run lesser bands would kill for).
I Teenage Fanclub. The Groovy Little Numbers. Static. Hideous Thing and liaison D'etre Glasgow Polytechnic. Cowcaddens Road. 332 0681 . 9pm. £5 (advance). £6 (door). Students and guests. Glasgow Poly ‘s end-of-term bonanza. with carousing permitted until 7am. Those who missed out on T. EC. 's two shows at King Tut‘s had better catch the grungey ones now. as they’re waltzing straight past Glasgow on their July tour.

discerning indie kids. Hideous Thing and Raison D‘étre play acoustic sets in the downstairs bar.
I Marsha Fresca King Tut‘s Wah Wah Hut. St Vincent Street. 221 5279. 9pm. £4. Clean-living funk-driven rock band who‘ve succeeded in selling out two major Glasgow shows and have a cluster of defaced posters as their reward.

I Worldwide Crash. Cotton Club. Scott Street. 332 (1712. 10pm. £3. Following up their jolly folky acoustic support to Buddha Grass Harbour. Worldwide return to the Cotton Club for a bit ofthe real thing— jolly. electric rock and. hey. it's sort of folk-influenced too!

I Lisa M and Connie Lush Tunnel. Mitchell Street. 204 1000. 11pm. £5. Personal appearances. Lisa M’s current soul dance single ‘People‘ is reputedly a bit ofa danceﬂoor ‘burner'. as they say in clubspeak.

I The Kevin McDerrnott Orchestra Dugout. Cathcart Street. Greenock.0«175 27918. 10pm. £5.

Aberdeen's The Loveless (APB in a previous life) return from their Stateside foray as support.

I The Humplt Family and Blue October Strathclyde University Union. John Street. 552 1895. 9pm. £3. Studentsand guests. Strathclyde University ends its session with two suitably infectious bands. The Ilumpff Family are already well loved for their mad cajun pastiche. maintaining that theirs is true dance music. Blue October play more pedestrian synth pop but their enthusiasm is catching.
I A Chocolate Morning and The Barllies KingTut‘s Wah Wah Hut. St Vincent Street. 221 5279. 9pm. £3.50. A Chocolate Morning like their indie music good and powerful. with a set that builds loan impressive crescendo. Their debut IiP. ll’asled. is out now on Glasgow‘s new Still label.

I The Last Minute. Planet 0 and The Satellites. Papa Popcorn, The Leftovers. Space Monkey Malia and 1000 Tiny Little Biscuits Inch Park. Noon—6pm. Free. In no particularorder. and I believe they‘re still looking for a headliner anyway. Always worth popping along to Inch Park tocatch plenty of young local bands and bask in the sun. if there is any.

I Scatter and Forlteye Basin Street. Haymarket Terrace. 337 1006. Two more small local groups just begging to be investigated.
I Fund-raiser 369 Gallery. (.‘owgate. 225 3(113. Littly information so far about this attempt not‘only to raise money for the 369 but also its public profile. Zulu Syndicate should be playing at some stage of the proceedings. though.
