Music News 24/11/2012

Hey kids, here’s all the news for the last couple of days. I say all, I mean all I have.

First up, here’s a Netsounds Unsigned Rockhopper session from Bella, they must have done a billion of them! Here’s Rae Morris with Don’t Go. Looking a bit confused and nervous at the start there. What’s strange about being in a caravan with a couple of men who are filming you? I kid. Sounds lovely (and nervous looking is the default for lady singers before they fire up in my experience).

Be Like Pablo have T-shirts coming soon. That’s it, short and sweet. May as well keep typing here so it looks like more of a paragraph. Cleavers had a very limited number of sweatshirts made, only 2 left, so if you’re a medium and want a Pizza sweatshirt then go here. Relatively expensive to make but if there’s demand they’ll get some more. It’s chilly, need cozy things. They also passed the 666 fans mark the other day and the 666th fan was Toby Michaels of Toby Michaels Rolling Damned. Fitting.

Houdi will be taking a break from the whole blogging and band photo thing, well he might still be taking band photos but for the craic probably. Before shutting down he’s put up one more of the WTF entries with Ross “Roadway” McEwan which you can read here. Busy year ahead for a very hard working rocker that.

Lead singer of Scooty and the Skyhooks and solo vocalist in her own right Sarah Mackay has a new dance tune out. It’s called I Can Make You Happy and was done with…Clubland Good Times I think? Scroll down past the very large picture of her pretty face to hear it.

Back to rock gods, bit less pretty as well (no offense fellas). Estrella have had a few run ins with the law lately, documented here. The last one was down to looking a bit shady while failing to find a parking space, but they got an escort to one. They aren’t bad lads really.

Couple of videos from local music guru Rob Ellen. First up his band The Slim Panatellas with guest Lee-Anne Cornwall in home away from home The Greenhouse, tracks called In The Jailhouse Now. Great stuff. And he recorded a wee house session with Scott and Farquhar MacDonald ahead of their album coming out. You can see that here. And bloody brilliant it is too.

Cactus & Cardigan continue their quest to make it impossible for me to play them on the radio. They have a new demo up on the band page part of their page called The Money Shot. It’s about porn. Soooo won’t be playing that then.

Couple of things for Roads to Damascus. First off, they now have a drummer and bassist again. Welcome Colin Sanders smacking the drums and James “Jazz” Henderson slappin da bass. Violent stuff music. And here’s a video for ya, Life For Sale. Good stuff.

And finally, if you are a heavy metal music making person from the Highlands you should probably head over to Highland Heavy Promotions. The name is pretty self explanatory.

That’s you, and me, all caught up. See you in a day or so 🙂 Give the Facebook page a like if you haven’t already, and if you feel very generous give my movember efforts a couple of quid. Thanks in advance
