Music news that melts in your mouth not in your hand. Changes are afoot at Henry’s Cellar Bar in Edinburgh as Assembly Direct ups sticks from October and moves its operation to the Lot on the Grassmarket, under the heading the Jazz Centre. The Lot is by all accounts pretty dapper but has only been used sporadically as a venue, despite the nifty sound system. The hope is that this will mean an additional jazz venue in town although plans for the programme at Henry’s remain unconfirmed. The new programme at the Lot starts on 7 October. See Jazz listings, page 72 for more info.

Further innovations for Edinburgh's live music scene come at the College of Art. The Wee Red Bar is launching a series of shows every Friday from 4—7pm. as the penect way to start the weekend. The first is on 14 October and the impressively named indie combo THEREISANOlSEIKNOWCANONLY GROWLOUDER will play at around 6pm. lmpressively, all the shows are completely free. See Rock listings. page. 64 for more details.

Wave your hands like an excitable child at Christmas to herald the return of None of the Above. The cabaret-cum-live music night makes a welcome return to the Bongo Club stage with the relaunch night on Wednesday 12 October. Heading up the genre-crossing line-up is local vocalist Heather Macleod, who intends to recreate the celtic jazz weight of her album Crossing the Tides, backed by members of NotA regulars Mr McFalls Chambers. Propping up the bill are mullti-instrumentalist duo Martin Green and Joe Townsend plus Scandic/Scot folk trio Fribo. See Rock listings, page 64, for more details.

Fopp has announced the winner of this year's Scottish unsigned band search. Monkeytribe. Bouchereau. the Abdominal Showmen and Thee Comrades were the tour acts to come out on top and will all go into the studio to record new material which will be available from Fopp stores the length and breadth of the country later this year.
