A quiet revolution is taking place in SCOTTISH CLUBS: cool bands are playing live, replacing brainless, soulless music to the delight of punters. Camilla Pia reports.

s night falls. can you hear

that distant rumhle'.’ It’s

the sound of indie kids wiping away tears. casting aside their (‘amus novels and stainpeding out of their hedrooms in droves. They're taking over the clubs. l‘orcing la/._v I)Js who have snuffed out dance music with too many drugs to come up with something new and getting creative with other like-minded genre—bending music tans who can pick up a guitar and synths and do headspins at the same time . well almost.

With a growing amount of hands appearing at club nights around Glasgow. chewing your cheeks and tour to the lloor are no longer where it's at. as Radio 1‘s (iill Mills. one ot’ the record spinners at Period. explains. "I‘he days of people just dancing all night at a club are gone. It was like we suddenly realised we‘d been standing in a dark hos ol‘l‘ our tits to shit drugs for ten years listening to egos play records. So we reinvented ourselves. People now like the idea ol something a hit different: they don‘t want to he genre-specific. they want to try a little hit of everything.‘

So take your pick from a whole range of music styles and venues throughout the week. In the past few months alone Sons and Daughters. We Rock Like Girls Don‘t and Hall (‘ousin have appeared at Period. the Bronx and Minus (pictured) have rocked DeathkiIl-Hltltl and then there‘s a whole host of local acts who have performed at the Winchester Club. Club Tromolo. Supertly. Iil Rancho Relaxo. Funhouse. Ahnormals Anonymous and Record Playerz. It‘s the perfect way to catch them

Cabaret Voltaire, Edinburgh. Thu 22 Jul 0..

Anyone who Witnessed Snow Patrol tear through the Tut's tent at T in the Park this year will no doubt have been almost as overwhelmed by the occasion as Gary Lightbody. One man who wasn't at the party. however, was fellow Irishman lam Archer a shame. because he contributed guitars to 'Run' when he was actually a member of the band.

Fast fonvard a week and a half later. then, and we find our hero playing to promote his new album Flood the Tanks. OK. so the crowd is a lot more sparse than the One his mates managed to muster prewouslv - but what he's playing isn't that different. truth be told. Anthem-hooked indie— pop is the order of the day for Archer. and his softer tones can; it Just as well. Even screWing up a verse of excellently nostalgia-tinged slowie ‘Hon/ood Seapark‘ only endeared this personable and personality-filled troubadodr to us more - one of these days. the big tent .‘Jlll be his.
