£6 on the door

TIGHT MEAT will be finishing off their UK tour with a potentially head-spinning home-coming performance in the Glasgow University Union on 21st March 2007. After a slew of high-profile gigs with the likes of ALEXANDER TUCKER, JOSEPHINE FOSTER, JAZZFINGER and MV+EE, this heavily intoxicated aural spine-melt is sure to be a proper knees up! Expect skittery, densely polyphonic free rhythms (courtesy of SCATTER / BONNIE 'PRINCE' BILLY's drummer), wailing post-AYLER sax and the most physical double-bass playing you've ever seen from a man in his 60s.

RICHARD YOUNGS had to cancel his last appearance with Subcity due to illness, but this time it's a sure thing. Performing a vocal and electric guitar set, this one's going to be pure molten psych. As a lynchpin in the 90s British underground folk/improv scene, Richard Youngs has quietly built himself a massive reputation for twisting archaic, rustic folk forms into fresh, liberated mediums without sacrificing any of the magic that characterised the best 60s/70s shamanism. Glasgow performances from this man are beyond rare - miss this at your peril.

HEATHER LEIGH's spine-tingling vocals are still haunting the recesses of everyone's brain matter after her last Subcity appearance with MATTHEW BOWER and CHRIS CORSANO. Switching from a gentle, innocent melancholia to a full-on paint-stripping banshee wail at the drop of a hat, this former CHARALAMBIDES member is an true undergroung jewel. And you will never have heard a pedal-steel guitar played like this in your life!

So come on down to the GUU on 21st March at 9pm for an evening of beautiful, unique and exhilarating live music. BLACK STATIC TRANSMISSION will provide some suitably chilling audio entertainment between bands as an extra bonus. £6? Bargain.
