Medals – Irvine Harbour Arts Centre

Not only has JP Reid, once again, wow’d me with his excellent new(ish) album Medals – Disguises, but he also proved that he can be a fantastic acoustic performer. I was lucky enough to obtain tickets for their home acoustic show in Irvine, in a venue I had never heard of before. I believe this […]

Strathyre Music Festival

Foo Fighters Cover – My Hero

This year we were lucky enough to be asked back to the Strathyre Music Festival. We always have a great time in Strathyre and everyone is always very nice to us and they seem to appreciate what we do, which is always nice. This year we tried to stick to original material, especially since we […]

Biffy Clyro Paris

Biffy Clyro – Many Of Horror, Paris 2013

I was lucky enough to go to Paris to catch Biffy on their European tour for my 30th birthday. This is slightly ironic as I missed their Glasgow show, in April, due to me being in France. The wonderful Arcane Roots were supporting and on the whole the weekend was one of my highlights of […]

Six Months On

Six Months On – Released 2007

After recording and releasing “A Night At The Railway” Sooth went through a pretty rough time. Not only did it take a year to release “A Night At The Railway”, but I decided to go to live in America for 4 months, the longest I had been away from the band since I was 16. […]

A Night At The Railway

A Night At The Railway – Released 2004

After recording our first EP ¬†“Sooth” we managed to secure various gigs around Glasgow, mainly in venues like Strawberry Fields, The Cathouse and Barfly. At most gigs we were playing with bands that played really loud, pretty fast, and really LOUD. These were the days when the charts were infected (hopefully someone will get that […]

New music

This Summer has been great for some of my favourite bands releasing new music. Most have only released one track from their forthcoming album/ep to wet our¬†tongues. Below are the tracks, enjoy. If I have missed any cracking songs then please let me know. The Unwinding Hours – Break This fantastic band is due to […]

Chvrches – Lies

This is a cracking tune that has been making it’s away around social media. From what I gather it is a 3-piece project from Glasgow involving the legendary Iain Cook from Aerogramme and The Unwinding Hours (He also mixed Sooth’s 2nd EP), and I believe someone from Twilight Sad is involved. Brilliant tune. Can’t wait […]

Death of MCA – Beastie Boys Glasgow 1999

Absolutely gutted to hear the news of MCA. I have loved the Beastie Boys from a young age and they have always released fantastic material throughout their whole career. I was lucky enough to catch them live in Glasgow when I was 14. We turned up early, queued and got our position at the barrier. […]

Sooth EP

Sooth EP – Released 2003

Our first EP had the simple title of “Sooth”. The line up at this point was myself, Ian McDermaid, Malcolm Frew and David Frew. Our first band Dominate had finished about 6 months prior to Sooth and we weren’t too sure what to do with ourselves. We auditioned loads of singers for the new band […]

Sooth

Sooth 2002-2009

SoothMusic.co.uk has now expired and there is now no trace of my old band on the Internet. I thought I’d be OK with it. It’s been 3 years since we split up and we have all moved on. When the website went down I was annoyed that I didn’t save it all before hand, something […]

Here’s some awesome music – Make Sparks, Rewind

I have been lazy, really lazy when it comes to this blog. Been making websites for others, been busy at work and in life. To make up for it here is some awesome music. Enjoy. Make Sparks – Rewind

Happy Birthday Brian Eley – Maybe Later

One of my bestist buddies is turning 29 today, and I would like to take this opportunity to wish him an awesome birthday! I would also like to take this opportunity to let the rest of the world know how big a legend he is, and the easiest was I can do that is by […]

The LaFontaines – Paper Chase (Live)

I made this video after being properly impressed by the Font boys while touring their new single Paper Chase. I was lucky enough to catch them at their sell out gig in Stereo, and then at Be In Belhaven outdoor festival. It’s easy to make a half decent live video when the band put on […]

I’ve been lazy….

…well, maybe not lazy. Just busy. Not posted on here for ages. Watching the latest Glasgow PodcART podcast and I started to feel guilty about my lack on posts on this blog. Lots has been happening and I’ll hopefully get it up here soon. In the mean time enjoy this video of local Glasgow band […]

Twin Atlantic – Free

I have my moments with Twin Atlantic. When I first got some of their early EP’s I loved it, the first few listens of the mini album were good until I got bored, and right about now I had kind of lost interest. Still not picked up tickets to go and see them at the […]

Glasgow PodcART – The Unwinding Hours Special

I’ve never really been into Podcast’s. I used to watch Diggnation every now and again, but audio podcast’s have never grabbed my attention. I thoroughly enjoy listening to my own choice in music, and thought of podcast’s as just another form of the boring radio stations that I have listened to in the past. This […]

Sucioperro – Reflexes of the dead

My band of the moment. Their new album is ace, as are their live shows. Here is a video of their latest single “Reflexes of the dead” that I filmed back in September last year in King Tut’s. Been wanting to show people it, but I wanted people to hear the original recording first. If […]

Biffy Clyro @ SECC, Glasgow

Here is some footage I caught while at the gig. Enjoy.

My Musical Past

I have been playing/writing music from a young age. Most of the time it isn’t that great, but every now and again I do something that I’m quite proud of. Since this is the first post in the Sound section, I thought I would post some previous music that I recorded with my old band […]
