Matt Scott - "Kicking Leaves" Reviewed By Me, Big G

The words "Handsome bastard" are thrown around a lot these days. But Matt Scott is releasing his latest single "Kicking Leaves" on the 30th of November and it's only fair he should be recognised for what he is. So 'mon in and sit with me, let me tell you all about a brand new single from Matt Scott. A musician, a story teller, and a downright handsome bastard.

Jelly For Breakfast! : A review of the EP by Multistorey Lover - Jenny Tingle

Jelly For Breakfast! : A review of the EP by Multistorey Lover - Jenny Tingle

Multistorey Lover’s unique sound blends old-school hard rock and sexy blues rhythms with the extra added bite of modern mastering and recording equipment.

Jelly For Breakfast brilliantly encapsulates the sound and live energy of Multistorey Lover. I always enjoy seeing this four-man powerhouse from Perth live. As an interesting side-note, the eye-catching artwork on the EP’s cover is drawn by vocalist Kris Dye, who works as a tattoo artist during the day.

MUSICIANS AGAINST HOMELESSNESS @ THE BARRAS By C.T Herron (with some help from Terence McKenna) 

Large crowds coming together for times like this are the remedy to toxic society. Research shows 20mins at a gig can increase your well-being by 21%! More research suggests that going to a concert directly links high levels of well-being with a lifespan increase of nine years. Whether or not that’s true, music in general increases happiness, we all know that! Gatherings of like-minded people resonate with positive frequency and a harmonious collective consciousness; it’s good for the soul, you can feel it right?

MAD CADDIES WORLD TOUR 2018 (AND RETROSPECTIVE) - C. T. Herron

I’ve got Mad Caddies vinyls and CDs and tshirts and ticket stubs from the gigs I’ve attended, they are the soundtrack to many great memories, both live on stage and through their records at home. If you don’t know them do yourself a favour and start consuming their healthy back catalogue now, there’s not a bad song among it, not one.

Gordon Robertson- "Vodka Lemon Lime" Reviewed By Me, Big G

Some people will say that "Chill" is to be best consumed in pill form, others think that the chill is gone.  However, 24 year old Jazz merchant Gordon Robertson does not subscribe to such nonsense.  The east coast singer songwriter releases his single "Vodka Lemon Lime" on the 27th of July and it sets a pretty solid benchmark to define "Chilled".

The Big Glasgow Pub Crawl Part One - The Grove Bar / The '78 / The Birdtree and Bellfish

More of a hotel lounge than an actual bar, but that's okay, i'm not too picky where I buy my booze these days. I am a bit touchy when two pints costs me more than a tenner though, even if it is two good ales. This is still Glasgow right? Or did I get so pissed last night I have somehow teleported to central London?
