I Jayne County and Campus Tramps Lord Darnley. West Port. 229 4341. 9pm. Last time the queen of glam punk played here. she was backed by a band that consisted of Joyriders and other local celebs. and the same will probably happen this time. Outrageous. raunchy. with a wicked tongue in her head. there‘s only oneJayne County.

SUNDAY 18 Glasgow
I Ugly kid Joe and Electric Love Hogs Barrowland. Gallowgate. 552 4601. 7.30pm. £7.50 plus booking fee. £8.500n door. Tickets from Just The Ticket. Virgin. Union Street. 226 4679. In the wake of post-Nirvana complete and utter cluelessness when it comes to fathoming what‘s what in the metal/grunge field in the US. any bunch of chancers deploying loud guitars can slip through the quality control net and inflict unnecessary suffering on the youth of the nation. Here are that bunch ofchanccrs.
I Valhalla Cottiers. llyndland Road. 357 5827. 9pm. Free. Folkyduo.
I Archbishop kebab, Forkeye and Nyah
. Fearties Wee Red Bar. Edinburgh College of Art. Lauriston Place. 229 931 1.9pm. £3.50 (L3). Not a place where Phil Collins and Tina Turner fans will be congregating tonight. It‘s always a perverse delight to see the completely barking Nyah Fearties furiously churning out their disturbing take on folk music. Could age possibly have mellowed them? Forkeye release their debut EP at the start ofNovember. and it‘s bound to be a very heavy. discomforting slab of sound judging from their recent live shows. Archbishop Kebab. whose cross-cultural collisions work just about often enough to make it worthwhile. must be about due for another record too.
I Mustang Sally Preservation Hall. Victoria Street. 226 3816. 10pm.

MON DAY 19 Glasgow I The Orb Barrowland. Gallowgate. 552
4601. 7.30pm. £8.50 plus bookingfee.
Tickets from Just The Ticket. Virgin. Union Street. 221 5279. Plus DJ Lewis and other special guest DJs. Gloopy cross of prog rock and ambient house brought to you from the space between Alex Patterson‘s ears. Not being great ones for charismatic performance. he and partner Thrash sit back and let an amaaazinglight show handle the visual side. For such an intrinsically repetitive sound. there‘s going to be a lot to take in tonight.
I The God Machine and Landfall KingTut‘s Wah Wah Hut. St Vincent Street. 221 5279. 9pm. £4. Mass outbreak of teeth-gnashing in the office (okay. okay. just me) on discovering this gig clashed with The Orb extravaganza. The God Machine dig prog too. but nail it tothe floor instead ofletting it float about in the ether. and balance the austerity with some mosh-friendly grunge betraying their US roots. Landfall go for the melodic grunge side of things too. despite coming from Glasgow.
I Meat Beat Manifesto Venue. Calton Road. 557 3073. Only Scottish date forthe Swindon-based studio rats who have heard their track ‘Radio Babylon‘ sampled by The Prodigy and The Future Sound Of London lately. After creating an early impression as arty hard-dance dilettantes. their image has improved over the years. and the new album Saryricon. leavened with welcome splodges of wit. could break them in a big way.

WEDNESDAY 21 Glasgow

I The Receiving End Negociants. Lothian Street. 225 6313. 10pm. Free. Kirkcaldy-ites. whose sparkling independently-released guitar-pop CD-EP. That’s The Way I Operate! is reason enough for taking the time to go to see them.
I The Grows Bertie‘s. Merchant Street. 225 2002. 11pm. Free. Hard-rockin‘dudes who‘ve tossed aside their temporary Wild Spirit moniker and. after at least seven years together. must be wondering what the future holds.
I Live music Subway. Cowgate. 225 6766. 10pm.
I Live music Bannerman‘s. Niddry Street. 556 3254. 9.30pm. Free.
THURSDAY 22 Glasgow
I Mike Peters And The Poets Of Justice King Tut's Wah Wah Hut. St Vincent Street. 2215279. 9pm.£6.The ex-Alarm frontman’s new band with more ofa country-rock slant to their sound. but probably still providing plenty opportunities for punching the air in a show of sincere solidarity.
I Christian Death Cathouse. Brown Street. 248 6606. 8pm. £5. Old goths die hard. Oblivious to the fact that it‘s the same ﬁve people who‘ve been buying their records for the past eternity. this motley crew continue to make an art form out ofbeing gruesome.
I Fassbinder and Landlall The Dunny. Bogle Stone, Glassford Street. 553 1638. 10pm. £2. Two of Glasgow‘s noisier patrons. Fassbinder play loud and spiky. unveiling a bunch of excellent new material at their That Petrol Emotion support slot recently. See Mon 19 for Landfall.

I Don't Talk Legends. Thorn Brae . Johnstone. 0505 35818. 9pm. Free.
I Gil Scott-Heron Assembly Rooms. George Street. 8pm. £8.50 (£7.50). An opportune time for the newly-cleaned-up Scott-Heron to make his British re-appearance. what with him being cited as a primary inﬂuence on The DiSposable Heroes Of Hiphoprisy (listen to the Disposables track ‘Music And Politics‘ to see how much of an impression he made on them). Even when his career was sliding downhill in the 805. Scott-Heron put on some excellent shows in Scotland. Hopefully, his blend of funk. jazz. rap and social commentary will find enthusiastic record company support again.
I Wollstone Queen‘s Hall. South Clerk Street. 668 2019. 7.30pm. £6.50. Fast-rising Scottish folk-rockers continue their inexorable progress with the release ofa new album. The Chase on Iona Records. That they‘ll be one of the biggest bands in Scotland by this time next year seems almost certain.

SUNDAY 11 Edinburgh
I Eartha Kitt King‘s Theatre. Leven Street. 2204349. 7.30pm. £12.50. £10.50.£8.50. Grrr-r-r-r! Orson Welles called her ‘the most exciting woman in the world‘. Half Man Half Biscuit were slightly more contemptuous. Classic songs from the Broadway stalwart and original Catwoman (yes. she did that too).
