I The Atom Seed Venue, Calton Road, 557 3073. One of Britain’s top exponents of that ever-popular funk metal racket, who have yet to make the dent in mainstream taste that they’d like to. New single Dead Happy could see about that.

TUESDAY 15 Glasgow
I All About Eve and Kinky Machine King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, St Vincent Street, 2215279. 9pm. £6.50. A chance to see if All About Eve have survived their record label shake-ups with their keen sense of self-mocking irony and eardrum-shredding speed metal sensibilities intact. But seriously folks . . . no more of that dire AOR nonsense please; bring back the pastoral whimsy, all is forgiven.
I Glasgow Songwriters teaturing Hell Thomson Blackfriars, Bell Street, 552 5924. 9.30pm. Free. Plus open platform.
I Dr Feelgood Preservation Hall, Victoria Street, 226 3816. 10pm. Maximum R&B. Back to what must be their favourite Scottish venue, the band who were the toast of the British music scene until punk came along to screw everything up for them. Failure to repeat their original commercial success never put an end to the band, although Lee Brilleaux is the last original member.
I The Drifters Cavendish, West Tollcross, 228 3252. The original Drifters, we’re told, though these days (and especially in the case of The Drifters, who‘ve had more than 50 singers pass through their ranks), who can tell any more? What will doubtless be present and correct are the songs: ‘Sweets For My Sweet’, ‘Kissin’ 1n
The Back Row Of The Movies’, ‘On Broadway’, ad inﬁnitum.
IPeter and The Test Tube Babies Venue, Calton Road. 557 3073. Hoeplessly forgotten punk lags attempt a comeback. Can anybody name any of their songs?

WEDNESDAY 16 Glasgow
I That Petrol Emotion King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut. St Vincent Street, 221 5279. 9pm. £6. Always a vital, energised live act and usually pretty reliable on the wondrous musical revelation score. Their tastes are eclectic and they keep switching their line-ups, so there’s no stagnation. Goodness knows what tangent they‘re pursuing these days.
I The Henry Brothers RGs, Queen Street, 221 2200. 10pm. Free. Uplifting folk pop. I Jimmy Bill MacSorleys. Jamaica Street . 2218499.9pm. Free. Formerly The Amazing Jimmy Brock Experience. Second of his nights at MacSorleys.
I The Basement Subway, Cowgate, 225 6766. 10pm. Solid but atmospheric Glasgow band, formed in 1989, who have spent all but the last few months in and out of the studio polishing their sound.

I Angeline Negociants, Lothian Street, 2256313. 10pm. Free.
I Live music Platform One, Rutland Street, 225 2433. 9pm. Free.
THURSDAY 17 Glasgow '
I Spirituailzed and Miranda Sex Garden King Tut‘s Wah Wah Hut, St Vincent Street, 221 5279. 9pm. £6. Now that Spiritualized have categorically proven on many occasions that you can make like a statue and still be an astounding live band, there’s absolutely no excuse for anyone to stay at home tonight nursing their precious copy of the sensual Lazer Guided Melodies LP instead of experiencingthe heady live extravaganza. Abandon all need ofdrugs, all ye who enter here— Jason and co. dispense far better medicine. Sublime support from Miranda Sex Garden, who blend Elizabethan madrigals with more contemporary haunting atmospherics.
