W I Primal Scream and Alabama 3 Barrowland. Gallowgate. 552 4601. 7.30pm. SOLD OUT. Plus DJ Paul Harte completing the party line-up. The Scream‘s last homecoming gig on Glasgow Green last summer provoked an ambivalent response from fans. and the band themselves felt that rocks were not got off in usual screamadelic style. so hopefully they‘ve done something about it this time. Support from the mad testifyin‘ collective Alabama 3. I Pitchshifter and Bullyrag The Cathouse. Union Street. 248 6606. 8pm. £5.30 plus booking fee.

52 THEUST 6—19 Feb 1998
220 4348. 7pm. £10.50. The former Teardrops Explode fronttnan and original loony hits the capital. Expect much inane warbling and a few fine songs too. With support from this generation's llltisl famous poet.
I Altered Beats Henry‘s Cellar Bar. Morrison Street. 221 1288. 10pm. £3 (£2). The legendary Altered Beats club returns with Phase One of its 1998 preview. Expect drum 'n' bass with a (an, element. Plus 1)] Richie Rufftone.
I Sleeper. Rialto and Libido Barrowland. Gallowgate. 552 4601. 7.30pm. £9 plus booking fee. No age restriction. More general indifference has been detected 111 the Sleeper area. so they‘ve finally been rumbled as the mediocre indie poppers they are. Mind you. celebrity singing tutor Tona 1)e Brett has been quoted as saying that Louise Wener has a great voice. Is she tleal‘.’ lir. no. obviously. she's a singing tutor. Fans in high places — that must be the secret of their inexplicable success. Support from melodramatic popster Rialto and Norwegian trio Libido (sec albums).
I Julian Cope and Murray Lachlan Young The Arches. Midland Street. 221 4001. 7.30pm. £10.50 plus booking fee. Last we heard. Julian had ‘disappeared'. probably not in the Middle East pseudo- political sense. more because he's a law unto himself. With any luck he'll have returned from the wilderness with more off-the-wall soothsaying for the edification of us all. Trendy poet Murray Lachlan Young. as you know. is overpaid no more after his unceremonious spill from EMl but continues to ramble on like an inebriated member of the landed gentry.
I The Hybirds, Javaal and The Answer King Tut's Wah Wah Hut. St Vincent Street. 221 5279. 8.30pm. £3.50. The Hybirds are a fairly-fancied trio who manage to make their mod influences
