ETERNAL FAGS (GLASGOW)
DIY LEGENDS OF THE GLASGOW SCENE AND WINNING SPERM PARTY LABEL RUNNERS.
“Elusive and nameless (well, we know one of them is known as ‘Chris’), Eternal Fags rose from the ashes of two of the city’s revered garage rock outfits, Plaaydoh and Dirty Summer, who had both released music on local DIY label Winning Sperm Party. It wasn’t long after forming that the ‘Fags followed in their footsteps, releasing a self-titled mini-album of brutal and nervy punk rock which showed parallels with the discordant beauty at the heart of the city’s contemporary scene, going on to garner well-deserved acclaim last year. As the band quips: “We pretty much just did it ourselves and Winning Sperm Party took the credit for it.”
Like an amalgam of the more subversive branches of heavy music heard over the past few decades, Eternal Fags serve up a volatile cocktail of overdriven guitar, primal beat-keeping, and the deranged, wordless yowling that the band passes for vocals. All of which is bolstered by a solid backbone of infectious punk hooks. What drove them to produce such a feisty wall of noise? “When we were making the songs on that album we were primarily listening to Fun House, Sabbath, Captain Beefheart and a lot of krautrock.” Go figure.” – The Skinny
SMACK WIZARDS (GLASGOW)
Also From Glasgow smack wizards are Claire O’Brien (drums), Waldo (bass) and Jack Mellin (guitar). Working together to create semi-improvised loosely written pop songs. Every show is a unique blend of noise, rock and pop, bringing elements of dinosaur Jr and arab on radar with them. Expect an electrifiying performance which is both engaging, fun and semi-improvised.
