MUSIC ROCK & BLUES
I The iiewcranes and Junk Republic King Tut‘s Wah Wah Hut. St Vincent Street. 221 5279. 9pm. £4. The Newcranes trace the same musical lineage as the likes of The Levellers and Radical Dance Faction. so lots of organic folk- influenced sounds.
I Glasgow Songwriters featuring Dream vleavers Blackfriars. Bell Street. 552 5924. 9.30pm. This is getting to be a habit. The second week running that Glasgow Songwriters have featured a band. Just coincidence. we think.
I Doctor Pop 13th Note. Glassford Street. 553 1638. 10pm. Free. Unveiling a new line-up.
I The ilaked See, ilectar 3 and Honey Venue. Calton Road. 557 3073. 9pm. The Fauldhouse-based Naked See. about to sign to biggie BMG. are the ﬁrst band I‘ve heard in years that remind me ofJoy Division (step forward singer Paddy Mooney). but they‘ve got a thrashy side to balance their epic tendencies. Honey. formerly Indigo Father. have already clocked up two TV appearances. with the best no doubt yet to come.
I Elimar Theatre Workshop. Hamilton Place. 226 5425. 8.30pm. £3.50 (£2.50). A candle-lit performance in the cafe-bar of White Island Melodies. a song sequence insipired by life in the hills of Ibiza from the Yorkshire-bom singer and artist.

Only surpassed by Freddie And The Dreamers and Gerry And The Pacemakers in the risibility stakes of the 60s. The Hollies were the 2 Unlimited of their era — a hit machine with no long-term legacy to leave behind them. At least The Dave Clark Five were sharp dressers.
_I Midway Still King Tut‘s Wah Wah Hut.
St Vincent Street. 221 5279. 9pm. £4. The Band Who Would Be Husker Du bowl out more of their melodically grungey. grungin melodic material.

I Adorable and The Bardots Venue. Calton Road. 557 3073. 9pm. £4. Continually improving stellar indie pop brigade. with a neater way with guitars than was at ﬁrst visible. ‘Sistine Chapel Ceiling‘ was indeed a princer beast of a single. If only they didn’t feel obliged to nonce around so much on stage as a means of distancing themselves from the shoegazing pack. Support The Bardots
keep it in the family - their vocalist is the brother of Adorable's Piotr. I Ellmar Theatre Workshop. Hamilton Place. 226 5425. 8.30pm. £3.50 (£2.50).

I Lena Martell Pavilion Theatre. Renﬁeld Street. 332 1846. 7.30pm. £12.50. £8. The demand for soft-focus sentimentality must be high. judging by Lena’s multiple appearances here over the past few months.
I Brenda Lee Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. Sauchiehall Street. 7.30pm. £16.50. £14. £12.50. Tickets from the Ticket Centre. Candleriggs. 227 551 l. A knockout singer from the age of six (by eight years old. she was a regular radio and TV performer).

I Brian Shiels Quartet Jazz at The Dunny. Bogle Stone. Glassford Street. 553 1638.9—1I.30pm.£3.50(£2.50). Line-up as for The Tron in Edinburgh on Wed 24. with the exception of American guitarist Clay More (a sharp player. doubtless). who replaces Russell Cowieson.
I Moscow Art Trio Queen's Hall. Clerk Street. 668 2019. 8.30pm. £6—7.50 (£4). Something of an unknown quantity. but an intriguing one. Their music allegedly combines folk. jazz and classical elements. and the fact that they have recorded (albeit as a duo) for ECM might well back up that description. The trio are pianist Mikhail Alperin. who seems to write most of the music. French horn player Arkady Shilkloper. and the most recent addition to the ranks. singer Sergei Starostin. The concert is part of Assembly
Music's Sound C heck series. and should be worth checking out.

I Spike Robinson Jazz at The Tron. Tron Cellar Bar. 9 Hunter Square. High Street. 220 1550. 9pm. £4 (£3.50). The advertised appearance by New York-based Scottish saxophonist Joe Temperley has had to be cancelled. along with the rest of Joe‘s projected UK tour. which is a great shame. There is ample compensation. though. in the return of saxophonist Spike Robinson. whose Lester Young-Ben Webster inﬂuenced playing is always a delight.
