ANYTHING GOES SPECIAL FROM JAMIE’S COAST COFFEE POP UP CAFE BAR AT DUNOON PIER WITH AZURE HALO
Azure Halo are a six piece Indie/Psychedelic band hailing from Glasgow, Scotland turned up in Dunoon on Sunday 14th August to
play at Jamie’s Coast Coffee Pop Up Cafe to close the Revival weekends entertainment. Like something from Height Ashbury, the band playing under a Gazebo next to the Pier in the street. The band are influenced by the 60′s psychedelic scene of West Coast America, maybe we are starting a West Coast Scene of Scotland. The links to the American Garage Scene don’t stop there. The band do a cover of The Electric Prunes Train For Tomorrow and The Electric Prunes reciprocated with their last single released “Left in The Blue” which was written by Azure Halo’s singer Rik. The sun was out and the band finely tuned after a hectic weekend of playing various venues across Scotland, they played a short but sweet set incorporating a few covers and some of their own tunes. The band sealed it for me when they ended their set with a blistering version of Count Five’s Psychotic Reaction. A great bunch of guy’s and gal, we managed to get the band to come down to the studio and do an interview for us, telling what they have been up to and what they are planning to do. In the bands own words they lay Seal Gate to rest and the band can now move onwards and upwards.
Incorporated into the interview I will be playing tracks from Kula Shaker, Ghost Wave, The Electric Prunes, Chocolate Watchband, Night Beats, The U.F.O. Club, The Seeds, The Shadows Of Night, The Black Angels, The Spyrals, The Chemistry Set and All Them Witches.
Neil Sturgeon Plays With Fire.
Glasgow musician Neil Sturgeon came in
to the DCR studio on Cowal Games Friday to treat us to an acoustic set of new and old material. As part of The Anything Goes way of life there was no set plan, just go with the flow and flow it did. Neil’s been working hard as a musician over the past decade as he has now gone on a solo path leaving the Mod influenced band The Goldenhour, two albums in the bag, Beyond The Beyond and Always In The Now, a few tracks from these albums have featured on Anything Goes. Now with Neil’s eagerly anticipated debut album Geography & Luck coming out soon, he has been doing the rounds this summer with gig’s in Amsterdam, Glasgow South Side Festival, Edinburgh College of Art and Whistle Binkies, Glasgow West End Festival and culminating in Glasgow’s Merchant’s Festival. Neil’s new work has mostly been produced at home, whitest some has been produced by Raymond McGinley of Teenage Fanclub notoriety at The Buzzwagon Studios.
With the DCR studio not knowing what to expect Neil kicked off with Bedhopper and straight away a cool atmosphere was set, people milling in the background came to the fore to see what was going on, numerous messages started to come in from listener’s to find out who was playing and a new following was born without the first set being finished. Pick track from the first set would have to be Likely Lads Theme/Ride The Tide, the later being his last single. Finishing up with I Wish I’d Never, you just could not help but tap your feet to these tunes. With a short break between set’s Neil chose two tracks from his influence’s and not a bad choice either The Byrd’s – Just A Season and The Charlatans – Try Again Today. So moving into the second set of the evening Neil now warmed up, treated us to a blistering paced set with an excellent Who medley and an alternative version of Always In The Now smoothly incorporating The Rolling Stones – Play With Fire, which seemed as though the two had always been part of the same song. With time catching up on us Neil ended the show with The Outdoor Type and just left us wanting more, judging by the response the listener’s wanted more.

PRIMAL SCREAM FOR DUNOON GIG
As reported here on DCR by DJ Luke on Tuesday Primal Scream are to appear here in Dunoon at the Queens Hall on Saturday 16th June
Celebrating 30 years in the business this year, Bobby Gillespie and co. kick off their Summer with three Scottish shows in preparation for their dates at the Isle Of Wight Festival, the Hop Farm Music Festival and their support slot at the Stone Roses reunion show.
Bobby Gillespie and Co have come a long way together, from the ambient indie-rock sound of the Mercury Prize winning ‘Screamadelica’ to something far darker and more experimental with later albums ‘Exterminator’ and ‘Beautiful Future’. Forever movin’ on up, the band commemorated its 20th anniversary in 2010, performing the seminal ‘Screamadelica’ album live in its entirety.
