....and it's another direct hit for Glasgow. There must be something in the air up there, something which makes it almost impossible for anyone who forms a band to be crap. I'm only jealous of course, I mean... what has York done for the music world of late? Anyway the band I'm talking about are a bunch of Glaswegians called The Dykeenies. Having the honour of being the first band to sign to the King Tut's record label they have presented the world with one hell of a debut single. If you can find a copy of "New Ideas/Will It Happen Tonight" snap it up because you'll only end up kicking yourself later that you missed out on such a juicy slice of vinyl.
The band have also been noticed by the NME (I'm not sure if that's actually a good thing) and are participating on the NME Rock & Roll Riot Tour which calls at:-
October 17th - Sheffield, Leadmill
October 18th - Bournmouth, University
October 20th - Nottingham, Trent University
October 22nd - Oxford, Brooks University
October 23rd - Norwich, UEA
October 24th - Liverpool, University
October 25th - Newcastle, Northumbria University
It's probably worth checking before you go because I think some of these might already have sold out.
