7.30pm. £11 plus booking fee. Tickets from Just the Ticket. Virgin. Union Street. 226 4679. Perhaps high-level gigs are so thin on the ground. because everyone knows that the iguana man is in town and other bands either can’t compete or want to see him play themselves. Still just about manages to convince with his snake-hipped antics and the maximum rock ’n' roll numbers stand the test of time. See preview for Molly Half Head. I The Time Frequency Mayfair. Sauchiehall Street. 332 3872. 6.30pm. £15. A relatively pub-sized gig for the massively popular TTF. who‘ve finally managed to convince the whole of Britain of the worthiness of their rave-pop. if the protracted chart sojourn of their last EP was any barometer. Entry is by ‘registration card’ — obtain one in advance in person or by post from the Mayfair — and then produce the card on the night with the entry fee. In this way the Mayfair hope to combat forged tickets. The whole shebang continues until 2am.

I Goodbye Mr Mackenzie Paradise Club. Moray House Student Union, Holyrood Road. 556 5184. 12.30am. £6.50 (£5). An underrated live band. as their recent self- ﬁnanced live album hinted at. the Mackenzies should be checked out by all rock-loving visitors to Edinburgh who haven't caught the band before. Splendid melodies, biting attack and an uneasy feeling afterwards. Guitarist Big John‘s defection to Nirvana has turned out to be tem rary. More fool them. we say.
I Joyriders and llectar 3 Cas Rock Cafe. West Port. 229 4341. 9pm. This one manages. just and no more. to avoid clashing with the Goodbye Mr Mackenzie date above. so you can catch three of the more happening Edinburgh bands in one night. The Joyriders. formed from the remains of the much-missed Cateran. play a grinding melodic hardcore that‘s won them fans around the country (and
acclaim for their ‘King Of Gasoline‘ single). The newer Nectar 3 fall roughly
into the same genre. but with enough mdmduality to make them worth seeing

I lite With llixon, Honey and Greenblade Venue. Calton Road. 557 3073. A showcase to push the new M8/K Cider cassette of unsigned Scottish bands. Life With Nixon. curiously. aren’t actually on the tape. but Honey contribute some solid. appealing guitar-pop and Greenblade are possibly the best. with a compelling rap/funk/rock track that fair lifts the roof.
