The Clock Café

April 1st 2012 saw the proposed amendment to the Civic Government Act, which would mean that “free entry to public entertainment events would require to be licensed, pass into law. In response an esteemed group of local musicians organised precisely the sort of event that would be, from that date, illegal under the act. Unfortunately I got there a bit late to catch eagleowl‘s opening set, but I did see Fuzzystar, Jamie from Broken Records, Neil from Meursault and Wounded Knee.  A few dozen enthusiastic punters filled Leith’s Clock Café to spend a beautifully sunny spring afternoon by The Shore as desperate outlaws; and to join some of Edinburgh’s finest musicians in protesting against this hopelessly misguided and potentially disastrous new law. And it must be said we all had a fine old time sticking it to the man.

The Ides Of Toad – October

I’m a little late with these, I’ll be the first to admit. It’s been a busy couple of months. Matthew over at Toad International Holdings Inc. put this little show on as part of his October Ides Of Toad series of gigs. Some of these photos are a little blurred and wonky – and I kinda like that – it suits the combination of confrontation and skewed charm provided by Fuzzy Star, Easter and The John Knox Sex Club. A splendid evening’s entertainment all round – if memory serves.
