I Jacob’s Mouse and Chickweed Wilkie House. Cowgate. On the crest of the Wiiija wave come Bury St Edmunds’ noisiest threesome. punting their I ’m Scared album. ‘Grindcore‘ and ‘youthcore‘ would appear to be the most apt of the babbling adjectives that accompany the record. Or should that be ‘rotten-to-the-‘. such is their punkgrunge noiseterror? Support from forceful. melodic Edinburgh combo in the American underground mould.
I Klngmalter and Delicious Monster Venue. Calton Road. 557 3073. 7.30pm. £5.50. The pathological touring machine
that is Kingmaker return to the road. flagging their new EP. IO Years Asleep. Whether the powers-that-be at Chrysalis like this stuff better than they did the Hull trio's early offerings for their second album remains to be seen. What do they know anyway?

I Doctor Phibes And The House or Wax EquationsKing Tut's Wah Wah Hut. St Vincent Street. 221 5279. 8.30pm. £5. A Liverpudlian trio who deliver a compelling brew of psychedelia. space rock. dub and heavy Jimi licks. and
release the occasional record when whim dictates. Theirs is a dynamic set - lazy waves of improvised guitar giving way to pure. insistent riffola. Lasers on stun.
I lloney, Baby Chaos and The Mighty Human Generator Nice’n‘Sleazy. Sauchiehall Street. 333 9637. 9pm. M8 celebrate their 50th issue with a bill featuring two of Glasgow‘s most hyped entities in Honey and Baby Chaos.

I Date Gatharsis Assembly Rooms. George Street. 10pm. An Edinburgh Fling bash. MC’d by the craggy and dry wit that is Arthur Smith. Headlining is Michael Chapman. early 70s folk-rock guitar hero (it sez here). with Shooglenifty. the country-rocking and Milli Vanilli look- alike Gary Hall (joined by one of his recently-demised band The Stormkeepers). and bluesy singer- songwriter Woodstock Taylor.
I That Petrol Emotion and Miraclehead Venue. Calton Road. 557 3073. 7.30pm. £5.50. The indefatigable Petrols continue onwards and sideways. A casualty of Virgin’s merciless roster-pruning. the band have recently released their
F irepmuf album on their own Koogat label. Still full of ﬁrey ire. still playing the Venue. Life‘s cruel like that.
I lights Out By lline Marco's Leisure Centre. Grove Street. 228 4141. This nine-piece soul band’s scorching live set includes songs by Sam & Dave. Marvin Gaye. Temptations. and Otis Redding. Wot. no Hue & Cry?

I Michael Bolton and Kenny G SECC. Finnieston Quay. 248 3000. £22. £20 plus booking fee. Tickets from Just The Ticket. Virgin. Union Street. 226 4679. A man whose crimes against Motown and hairdressing are too numerous to mention. yet who commands an inexplicably large degree of popularity. At least Kenny G‘s atrocities are largely instrumental.

Young Coatbridge band who are 1993's chosen act for the annual release on Different Class Records. the label owned and run by West Lothian College’s music management course. ‘Danceomatic’ is a jolly indie dance affair but by no means the only trick in their book.
