First up was St. Deluxe, a Scottish quartet that’s sort of like a combination of Teenage Fanclub and Jesus And Mary Chain, though not quite as poppy as the former nor as dark and feedback-driven as the latter. But the band members attacked their instruments with gusto and won me over.

This fuzz-pop quartet dropped their stellar debut LP in February of last year and have already shared the stage with the likes of Mudhoney, The Vaselines, and Sonic Boom. Ironically the band come across as a more modern version of Mudhoney, or a sort of Scottish take on Dinosaur Jr, with a bigger emphasis on distorted vocals and bass. However you want to label them, St. Deluxe will be a band to check out.

British India – St Deluxe – Penguins Kill Polarbears, Glasgow and Edinburgh gigs

St Deluxe with British Inda

We’re playing a couple of gigs with British India Australian band – see below for blurb.

Playing Glasgow and Edinburgh with them alongside Penguins Kill Polar Bears.


British India emerged from the fertile underbelly of Melbourne’s independent music scene to take Australia by storm in July 2007 with their acclaimed debut album Guillotine. As their songs became arm-raising, air-punching anthems at venues and festivals across the country, British India developed a hard-earned reputation for their explosive live shows.

Exactly one year later they… released their second album Thieves, which debuted at number 5 in the national ARIA chart and number 1 in the AIR Independent chart.

British India are one of Australia’s hardest working bands, having played over 300 gigs in the past two years alone. They’ve smashed their way through several sell-out tours and festivals like Big Day Out, Falls, Pyramid Rock, Southbound, Homebake and Splendour In The Grass to name a few. British India’s live show is a force to be reckoned with.

Watch out Scotland, British India are coming like an Avalanche.

“Blending pop melodies with garage grunt, it’s no surprise that their direct, honest garage-pop anthems have connected with some many fans”
—The Sydney Morning Herald—



St Deluxe were formed by Jamie Cameron and Martin Kirwan. Sharing a love of indie ethics and ideals, vintage guitars and fuzz pedals, they decided to start a band and a record label.

Taking inspiration from bands like Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, Teenage Fanclub, Dinosaur Jr, Jesus & Mary Chain, Spacemen 3 and Mudhoney plus labels like Creation, SST, Sub-Pop and Dischord… they enlisted the help of some friends, Stuart Kidd on drums & Brian McEwan on bass complete the line up.

“Post Glasvegas, I can see Glasgow just buzzing and bursting with talent…St Deluxe are a Scottish Nirvana for the 21st Century!“
—Alan McGee—



Formed in the winter of 2008, Penguins Kill Polar Bears play their hope-drenched post-rock to anyone who cares to listen. The band were born from a mutual love of good music, including bands such as Aereogramme, Silverchair, Appleseed Cast and The Smashing Pumpkins.

Notable gigs playing with such bands as Twin Atlantic, Nine Black Alps, The Xcerts, And So I Watch You From Afar, Tubelord and Anathallo have been the springboard to a rapidly growing fan base from Scotland and beyond.

“Deservedly follow in the footsteps of groups like Aereogramme, Biffy Clyro and newer friends and contemporaries like the Xcerts“
—The Scotsman—
