rock & pop listings Music




Dean Owens with the Felsons The first home town appearance from Felson with his old band in many. many moons makes this highly recommended. Quite beautiful from an unsung musical hero. Venue, Edinburgh, Sun 27 Jun.

Tortoise It's been a while since these extraordinary musical missionaries (pictured) paid us a visit. New album It's all Around You is a magical collection, the middle of the virtuous Venn diagram where jazz, instrumental rock. bossa- funk, electro and ambient intersect. See preview. Arches, Glasgow. Tue 29 Jun.

DMX The question of the week as Missy Elliot and Timbaland both cancel hip hop gigs in Glasgow this month and Nas is still in limbo waiting to be re-scheduled will DMX actually turn up? If he does it‘s bound to be a helluva show. See preview. Carling Academy, Glasgow. Tue 29 Jun.

James Brown UNGl—l! YEAH! HOO! HAH! GITTUPAH! All these phrases and more will be uttered by the great man on this very night. It ain‘t broke so he ain't fixed it still the same colossal travelling funk circus he's been parading for years. See panel. Clyde Auditorium, Glasgow, Wed 30 Jun.

Patti Smith For an artist to have meandered such a long and musical path. Patti Smith still seems in no danger of repeating herself or visiting too much old ground. Live she's still the same. displaying the passion and energy of someone half her age. See panel. Usher Hall, Edinburgh. Thu 7 Jul.

The Magic Band and The Fire Engines 1 know it feels like we're only banging on about the oldies this issue but it's just a coincidence. honest guv. Here Beefheart‘s musos and Edinburgh's original agit- funksters follow their sold out Liquid Room show with an equally appealing mix of unpredictable musical shapes. Carling Academy Glasgow.
