Love Sick Poster with support

LOVE SICK arrive like a shot to the heart with their debut track ‘Bullet’.

 

Few would believe how a serendipitous series of events helped create LOVE SICK. A boy-girl duo from Scotland who’s musical meeting of minds lead to the debut single ‘Bullet’. It’s a twisted love song – an ode to both heartbreak and obsession which will earworm its way into your head…and your heart. 

 

Both Scottish born and bred – Shaun in Glasgow, and Julie in Stirling – the pair first met whist working for the same life insurance call center, albeit in their respective cities. Their first meeting occurred at their work’s Christmas party when Julie drunkenly let slip she had always wanted to be a singer. Under a second wave of cosmic happenstance, they then bumped into each other again a few weeks later at a Glasgow train station.

 

Conversations quickly picked up from where they left off at the party and once again their mutual obsession with music came to the fore. While Shaun was fixated on 50’s and 60’s, Dylan’s lyricism and The Beatles’ hooks, Julie was in love with female pop stars of the here and now – Lana Del Ray, Florence and of course, Amy Winehouse. Numbers were exchanged and pretty swiftly, they were locked away in Shaun’s homemade studio. Already a producer, Shaun was excited to have found the perfect vocalist and collaborator to bounce ideas off.

 

‘Bullet’ looks set to launch the career of this promising young pop duo with force.

Ted Christopher @ Hootananny
Apr 28 @ 9:30 pm

Ted Christopher is one of Scotland’s finest performers. He is a well-travelled and extremely versatile singer songwriter. He is equally at home whether singing heart-felt originals to a concert audience, belting out Scottish favourites to the Tartan Army or playing some of his huge pop/rock repertoire to a packed dance floor.

Unfazed by any size of audience, he played to 750,000 people on The Mall in Washinton DC. A week later there were 12 in Cowie Miners Welfare. How’s that for a quick reality check? and they were both great gigs.

Ted has been involved in the Scottish live music scene since he was fifteen. He is proud to be a native of The Royal and Ancient Burgh of Stirling (Stirling is now a city but he much prefers the previous description of his hometown) and was born and raised a mere claymore’s length from Stirling Castle and The National Wallace Monument.

Ted performs many solo gigs, sometimes uses a couple of musicians as “The Ted Christopher Band” and of course fronts “Bannockburn”

Home$lice/Dylan Tierney
Apr 28 @ 10:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Howdy Tour

Glasgow five-piece Home$lice present their debut album ‘Howdy’. This time around, the band have taken a heavier, yet sparser approach in their song writing, taking inspiration from bands such as The Smiths, Pixies, New Order and Diiv. Lyrically inspired by their home city of Glasgow and the inevitable departure of youth, ‘Howdy’ is air tight in its execution.
The album, recorded by Ronan Fay at Green Door Studio, will be released by Glasgow-based garage label Spiral Oh in April 2018. The launch night will take place in The Poetry Club accompanied by a tour in support of the release.
2017 saw the band release their EP “Young creatives” described by local music blog Ravechild as, “one of the freshest sounding releases that’s come out of Glasgow”. “Out of sight”, voted no.2 in Ravechild’s ‘Songs of 2017’, was described by local music website Goldflake Paint as a “guitar pop gem, that continues to push the bands aesthetic.” Recorded at Glasgow’s infamous Green Door Studio, “Young Creatives” saw the band refine their alt pop musings into a sharper sound that scales the precipice of despair and devotion.
The band became friends through chance meetings in Glasgow’s myriad of musical happenings, forming in June 2015. After spilling onto the city’s frenzied music scene, Home$lice’s credentials were truly established when their song “Was it something I said?” from their first un-mastered demo “Citizen Kane 2” was premiered by Noisey a few
