I Sheep On Drugs, Headcleanerand Cubanate Music Box, Victoria Street, 225 2564. 8pm. Despite seeming like tedious techno-wafﬂe when they toured as part of Daisy Chainsaw‘s travelling circus, Sheep On Drugs have amassed a sizeable audience of their own. The more noisy and industrial Headcleaner will apparently be trying to draw attention away from their own musical shortcomings by bringing along a performance artist who abuses his body with axe-grinders and Chainsaws.

FRIDAY 27 Glasgow
I The Wedding Present Barrowland. Gallowgate. 552 4601. 7.30pm. £7 plus booking fee. Tickets from Just the Ticket. Virgin. Union Street. 226 4679. The Status Quo it‘s OK but not very trendy to like will play probably to their usual busy Barrowland crowd tonight. smug in the knowledge that their healthy singles sales throughout the year prove that someone out there is still listening to their splenetic lyrics and careering guitars.
I Finitribe Queen Margaret Union. University Gardens. 339 9784. 8pm. £5.50. Students and guests. Never allowing their ‘techno pioneers‘ tag to turn their heads. Finitribc continue to make varied dance music with a poppy songbase to it. Their costumes and stage sets conﬁrm they make an effort live too.

I TTF Cubik Club. Music Box. Victoria Street, 225 2564. 10pm—3am. Scotland‘s Number One dance band. say readers of Clubscene— and they‘re not the onlyones who think so. The Time Frequency‘s Futurama EP and ‘Real Love‘ single have sold exceptionally well in Scotland. and they‘ve probably lost count of the number of raves they‘ve played in their time together.
I Jad Fair Moray House Student Union. Holyrood Road. 556 8455. America‘s most vulnerable rock performer spreads a little sunshine with his naive. touching and frequently chaotic songs. The uninitiated could ﬁnd his solo sets a bit of an ordeal (actually tuning his guitar isn‘t rock’n‘roll enough for him). but at this venue a few months ago with Half Japanese he was pretty wonderful. Just ask dedicated disciples The Pastels to name their ultimate heroes and Jad will be near. ifnot at. the top.
I Hakossa Preservation Hall. Victoria Street, 226 3816. £1 .50 after 9pm. A steaming brew of reggae. soul and well-executed African pop.
I Hugh Reed And The Velvet Underpants Negociants, Lothian Street. 225 6313. 10pm. Free. Glaswegian funsters who earned their place in our memories with the rather good ‘Six Tae Wan‘ and the Walk On The Clyde Side EP.

I The Frames Strathclydc University l Union. John Street. 552 1895. 9pm. £3.50. Students and guests. Unlike Andrew Strong. fellow Commitmean star Glen Hansard and his band thankfully prefer vibrant folk-inﬂuenced pop to the karaoke Motown sludge foisted on an innocent public by said film. I Shonen Knlle and Superstar KingTut's Wah Wah Hut. St Vincent Street. 221
5279. 9pm. £6. Shonen Knife are good. clean. smiley fun for shiny. happy people. as long as you don‘t ponder their vagaries i toodeepiy. However. their sweetie ' obsession and dolly mixture costumes are i so prevalent that you can‘t help wonder ' how the toothsome trio escape allegations ofunwarranted twee excess.

Free.An ; offshoot of folky rockers The Olives. Tonight At Noon play what they call ‘ethnotech‘ — ‘an electronic. synthetic dance sound which includes some Scottishness in songs and accents‘. though it will most likely bear little resemblance to either Cicero or Jesse Rae.
I The Henry Brothers and Jimmy Riii Cottiers. Hyndland Road. 357 5827. 9pm. Free. Uptempo folk pop sounds supported by singer-songwriter.
