I eeliy, The Stem and The Loveless Queen Margaret Union. University Gardens. 339 9784. Students and guests. See preview for Belly. lreland's enchanting Cranberries write airy. sometimes folk-tinged indie guitar tunes embellished by Dolores O'Riordan‘s tremulous vocals.

Though their live appearances are reportedly erratic. the consensus on their Creation debut LP Shot Foth SeIfLiving is that it‘s in the Valentines tradition of one pan earsplitting volume to one part mesmeric drone. Support band Skyscraper are the grubby garage group formed by ex-Swervedriver bassist Adi and ex-members of Milk.
I Wereirogs, Submarine and Sidi Bell Said King Tut‘s Wah Wah Hut. St Vincent Street. 221 5279. 9pm. £3.50. Bands with singles to punt . . . An intriguing triple bill from Ultimate Records. the label that first brought you Levitation and The Belltower. The Werefrogs were last seen in the vicinity providing ﬁtting stratospheric support to the Kitchens of Distinction. Their current single ‘Nixie Concussion' ups the decibel level a triﬂe. while Submarine come over like a poppier Spiritualised on ‘Dinosaurs‘. See preview for Sidi Bou Said.

I Dinosaur Jr. Cone and Bettie Serveert Barrowland. Gallowgate. 552 4601. 7.30pm. £8.50 plus booking fee. Tickets from Just the Ticket. Virgin. Union Street. 226 4679. Hallelujah -J Mascis has got out ofbed long enough to record another album of slack melodious wonders which occasionally ﬂirt with the description ‘not half bad actually‘. How about some animation though. J? We‘ve been good boys and girls and we've eaten all our porridge and we want a treat. Support from Come whose Eleven:EIeven album supposedly reinvents the blues but. in point of fact. doesn‘t. Thalia Zedek is one emotionally-wracked frontwoman however. while Bettie Serveen's Carol Van Dijk makes an intelligent commentator on life‘s little foibles. backed by Muses-esque strumming. I The Bhundu Boys and Site-Ming: Strathclyde University Union. John Street. 552 1895. 9pm. £4. Students and guests. Those whose interest in The Bhundu Boys tailed off after Shabim' might get a surprise or two from their new album Friends On The Road. which features collaborations with World Party. Hank Wangford and very probably the oddest rendition of ‘Ring Of Fire‘ ever. Tonight. though. will be purejit. I Blade and Elias Tankin‘. Glasgow School of An. Renfrew Street. 332 0691. 10pm. £3. Students and guests. The independent rapper with the wide hip-hop repertoire continues to do things his way — prefening mail order to record company negotiations. Support from the equally free-spirited Elias. local jazz funkers for whom no stage is big enough (lots of members. y'see). See Clubs preview. IliugblieedAndTheVelvetllnderpants, The Rubber lioorn and The halted See King Tut‘s Wah Wah Hut. St Vincent Street. 221 5279. 9pm. £3. Phenomenal talent for self- publicity. and a pretty amazing pastiche of a plenitude of musical styles. None of this tribute band nonsense though.
I iioney Nice'n'Sleazy. Sauchiehall Street. 333 9637. 9pm. Formerly Indigo Father. these tuneful indie types have clocked up two TV appearances recently — one on N8 and one on The Word's splinter show Access All Areas.

I Forkeye and Sublime Cas Rock Cafe. West Port. 229 4341. 9pm. Bone-crushing heaviness from Forkeye. whose debut single shows their dual debt to European dance terrorism and New York guitar assault.
I Tlniterbell's Dope Ring and Spengieheade Subway. Cowgate. 225 6766. Doors open 9.30pm. Already hailed as the Highlands' best unsigned band. TDR have relocated down here in hope of greater exposure.
