Glasgow I Goats Don't Shave Mayfair, Sauchichall

‘Street, 332 3872. 7pm. £7 plus booking

fee. Tickets from Just the Ticket, Virgin, Union Street, 226 4679. Irish folky showband.

I The it-Creative Hustle, Strathclyde University Union, John Street. 5521895. 9pm. £4. Students and guests. One of the newer signings to the jazzy Talkin‘ Loud label who make a point of nurturing dance bands, like this one, with the capability of building their profile by playing live.

I The Jesus Lizard King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, St Vincent Street, 221 5279. 9pm. £4.50. US hardcore band featuring err-members of Scratch Acid and Atlanta ‘86 with a patented line in nastiness but also touting a humorous strain that you won’t find, for example, in your average Al Jourgensen spin-off project.

I Jump City Nice’n'Sleazy, Sauchichall Street, 333 9637. 9pm. £1 .

I The Fabulous Bambinos Cottiers, Hyndland Road, 357 5827. 9pm. Free. R&B.

I Storm Gordon Cottiers, Hyndland Road, 357 5827. 11pm. Free. Late night session featuring the smooth voice of ex-Babel singer Storm Gordon.

I Easy Does it MacSorleys, J amaice Street, 221 8499. 8.30pm. Free. Blues.

I The Super Troupers J ordanhill College of Education, Southbrae Drive, 950 3256. 8pm. £2 with ticket or before 10pm. £2.50 after 10pm. Students and guests. Another tribute band, thinly veiling the identity of the band they choose to impersonate in a bit of an indie style apparently. Bjorn Again may have something to say about this.

I Doloe Vita Legends, Thorn Brae, Johnstone, 0505 35818. 9pm. Free.


I The Sultans Oi Ping rc and Supernova Potterrow Student Union, Potterrow, 650 2656. £3.50 students, £4 guests. Tickets from Union shops. The best galvanisers of the terrace mentality to emerge in a long while, but The Sultans, coming as they do from Cork, sidestep the machismo with their eccentric choice of garb, rivalling even their fellow townsfolk The Frank And Walters in the silly costumes stakes. I Emily Subway, Cowgate, 225 6766. 10pm. Free.

I The Blaze Falters Preservation Hall, Victoria Street, 226 3816. £1.50 after 9pm. I Beltane Code Negociants, Lothian Street, 225 6313. 10pm. Free.

I Mustang Sally Lord Darnley, West Port, 229 4341. 10pm. Free.

I Shorty Rogers And The Giants Bugsy's. King‘s Stables Road, 229 3161.

I Gong Shapeshlner Mayfair, Sauchichall Street, 332 3872. 7pm. £6 plus booking fee. Tickets from Just the Ticket, Virgin. Union Street, 226 4679. Yet another permutation of David Allen‘s baby, with three original Gong members. With the rehabilitation of self-indulgent spacerock at the hands of Ozric Tentacles and The

Orb. Gong no longer seem to be flogginga

dead horse. You could almost call them contemporary.

I The Sultans Of Plng rc Strathclyde University Union, John Street,5521895. 9pm. £3.50. Students and guests. See Fri 23.

I Godtlesh and Creaming Jesus Glasgow Polytechnic. Cowcaddens Road, 332 0681. 9pm. £5. Students and guests. A grim double bill for the masochist contingent of the gig-going public. Godflesh are unrelenting, po-faccd industrial hardcore, sharing a complete lack of regard for melody with Creaming Jesus who attempt the well-worn trick of making doomy music and then claiming not to be goths.

I The Humptt Family, Solomon Flynn, The Oraniees and Hermon Batista George Square. 12.30pm. Free. This CND concert is an end-of-rally gig, musically touching all bases from cajun to Latin to white reggae.

I Eden King Tut‘s Wah Wah Hut. St Vincent Street. 221 5279. 9pm. £3. Most of the Wild River Apples including vocalist Gwen Stewart in a reconstructed bid for pop glory-

I The Bees Clubhouse, Old Sneddon Street, Paisley. 889 4706. 8.30pm. £1 .50. I Live Music Blackfriars. Bell Street, 552 5924. 9.30pm. Free.


I The Rockingbirds and The Bad Livers Venue, Calton Road, 557 3073. Doors open 7.30pm. See preview.

I The Ex, Tom Core and The Honkies ch Red Bar, Edinburgh College ofArt, Lauriston Place. 229 9311. 9pm—1am. £4 (£3). Amsterdam‘s renowned left-ficlders have avoided pigeonholing by refusing to acknowledge boundaries between one form of music and another, but live they can be counted as one of the most enthralling, if unconventional. rock bands around. They’re joined tonight by their old friend (and John Zorn collaborator) Tom Cora, the avant-garde cellist who played with them on the acclaimed ScrabblingAt The Lock LP. Rounding off the bill are the not-easily-digested Honkies, a wild, cacophonous horns ensemble.

I Christian Death Lord Darnley, West Port, 229 4341. 9pm. Hammy goths with delightfully tasteful publicity photos who must retain some kind ofappeal still to be trawling round the live circuit like this. Be warned: this is hard-core hair-crimping territory.

I Tlnkerbell’s Dope Ring Subway, Cowgate, 225 6766. 10pm. Invemesians who found a degree of fame last year with the sincere tribute ‘Audrey Hepburn‘. After plenty of touring in the Highlands, in their mobile ladybird, TDR have now relocated their base of operations to Leith forthe next bit.
