Shudder To Think are one of the most original bands to emerge this decade. with their offbeat approach to alternative rock and Craig Wedren‘s amazing falsetto vocals and crazy lyrics. Long Fin Killie make like a mad folk ensemble but their love of energy places them closer to punk. Mark E. Smith liked them so much he sang on their last single.

I Jimmy Page and Robert Plant SECC. Finnieston Quay. 248 9999. SOLD OUT. The men who launched a billion guitar solos go all ethnic and pomp-folk on Us. preferring to retread their abysmal ‘Stairway To Heaven‘ material rather than the classic stompers like ‘Kashmir‘.

Just as inﬂuential as Led Zeppelin in their own way. and it's probably a healthier influence to wield.

Veteran rock beast Fowley (not to be confused with spy Kim Philby) is a man with a few tales to tell and a maverick musical career spanning decades.
