Hey kids, here’s what’s been happening over the last couple of days.

I wrote in the Halloween pieces that there were currently 3 choices on the table. Unfortunately that is currently down to two. They’re searching for another location to hold the thing so if you can help out head over here. Mark is away for a couple of days so there won’t be a reply right away. Original locale was in Dingwall to give you a rough geographical idea (no I don’t know what happened).

Bluebelly recently played at the Dundee Rep Theatre for Bonanza 2012. There’s a couple of tracks on You Tube now. First up It Wasn’t You followed by Hangover Blues. First time I’ve seen Bluebelly, seen Dougie a few times on his own. Serious one, then a funny one, so both types of the blooooooooos.

Are you a band looking for a gig? Well if you are free on either the 14th or 28th of September you are in with a shot. The gigs are in The Mallard in Dingwall, you have to be able to play 3 x 45 minute sets (or team up with someone maybe, not sure on that but I know they’ve had multiple band nights) and you have to have your own PA. If you fit the requirements drop Steve a mail at

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to make last night’s showcase because crap buses so I missed everyone. Particularly irksome is missing Sienna Lights as I was going to pick up a copy of the EP from Graham. But there’s a track from it, Believing featuring KRTS who does a rappy bit. I think this is a special version not on the EP actually. The expanded full band brings out the pop side of Graham’s music, not a bad thing, and….that’s all I’m saying as I will review the EP at some point.

Here’s another goNorth/Netsounds Unsigned Rockhopper session for you. The excellent Iain McLaughlin & The Outsiders with Someone for Everyone. Great stuff. If the caravan’s a rockin, there’s a good session happening inside so don’t knock or you’ll probably blow the take.

And that’s all there is for today. I have a wedding reception tomorrow (not my wedding obviously) so no news. Bands, please don’t do anything interesting for 24 hours then do LOTS and it’ll work out fine. If you haven’t already please like the Facebook page, share stuff about, invite your friends, you know the drill. Kthxbye.
