Despite challenges from an ever~more-mainstream Manics. The Quireboys are still probably the best example of successful commercial rock with a glammy, disposable orientation.

I The Average White Band Cathouse. Brown Street. 248 6606. 9pm. £7. The legendary Scots funksters get back to their roots on a tour of club dates —spurred, apparently, by hearing that their classic ‘Pick Up The Pieces‘ has become a much-played record on the club scene.

Is their public image washed up irreparably? And should this have any bearing as long as they‘re still making great twisted blues funk records? Unfortunately. if ‘Stinkin‘ Thinkin" is an effective taster for Yes Please then they're

patently not still making terrific records. It

will however be a treat to see them return to a venue of this size.

I The Piemen RGs. Queen Street. 221 2200. 10pm. Free. A bit of an exclusive here. as The Piemen feature two ex-mcmbers of a highly successful Glasgow band.

After keepingthe Caledonian end up at various European festivals, Avalon have just released their third LP, Higher Ground, on Iona Records. With lots ofelemental. very Scottish folk-rock songs redolent of mountains and mist. interspersed with a few electric reels. it should sell by the skipful.
