Had Hawk on a few days ago, great album 

 

 

That shambles gig at the music hall was a hoot. Think a flying pint blew one of the amplifiers on the first song, IIRC. 

Was also at that gig. A bloody carry on.

I saw a band called Glass Onion as a support act at the Arches before they became Travis.  They're shite then as well but very different to Travis.

Good Feeling is a great debut album.  Still give it an airing on occasion.

Not a bad album to be fair. Couple of decent songs on it. 

Tied to the 90s isn't great. Just skipped it.

Saw them in 2000 I think at Manchester Apollo and they were good.

Another of those bands that have some decent tracks and decent albums but wouldn’t make any best band/album/song lists.

Wodka bar maybe? He still talks about nailing the wierd vodka’s at the time!

He fucked the manageress that night.

A couple of years later they did a gig in Aberdeen and ended up in there. She gave it "do you remember me?".

He didn't.

Plan b supported by example at king tuts. Still up coz some scottish lad was fighting in the ufc. Beat shogun rua as well, even though rua is getting on a bit, a gatekeeper so to speak. I've just ended up watching the other fights.

Jim cant swim has a class youtube documentary on the ex ufc fighter war machine, who went to prison for decades after beating up his ex to within an inch of her life. Vile human.

Never really seen any global superstars

Most famous in UK and Scottish terms probably Paul Weller (a few times) and The Proclaimers.

Best Weller gig for me was Crathes Castle, 2003-ish

Proclaimers was at AECC the night Scotland got beat by Italy to miss out on qualification for Euros or World Cup. Put a damper on the evening but probably didn’t matter because it was an absolutely shit venue.

Niche......The Redskins at Ritzys mid 1980’s. Brilliant. Crowd swelled considerably by the likes of nurses just coming in as part of a night out having never heard of the band or any clue about what they stood for.

Biggest - Bowie or Rolling Stones. 

niche - maybe Lindisfarne or the animals at the Renfrew ferry which was/is quite a good wee venue.
BMX bandits (at hug n pint and classic grand)  are pretty niche too.

Or brix smith from the fall with her band. Didn’t know any songs but she was very entertaining. Think budget blondie. 
 

would pay handsomely to see anybody just now.

Remember going to see a then relatively unknown Stereophonics in the Works (think that's what it was called back then) on Belmont Street back in the mid 90's.  Nae exactly niche but just something that I remember having stood next to Kelly Jones at the bar and thinking by fuck he's a small lad!

Possibly Glow 303.

I was there too.

The were supporting the fantastic Subcircus.
Single out at that time was Feels like Chaplin?

They may have played that venue twice. Canna mind.

I did really like them, but sort of lost their appeal when they went mainstream and the boy started acting like a cock.
