Sergeant
Junkstar
Rilkin
King Creosote
Certain Death
Paranoid Monkeys
The Draymin
The Manikees

- They'll all have myspaces.

There's also an open mic night every wednesday at Betty Nichols for some great acoustic acts, and you can also take a chance at the Greenside in Leslie for some other local bands.

Loved the Beta band and some of King Biscuit Time's stuff,though haven't heard much of Steve Mason's newer stuff under the monikers Black Affair and Good Face.Not so keen on the Aliens though,much prefer Gordon Anderson's solo stuff as Lone Pigeon.

Brady Cole were really good, bought an EP of theirs but never got round to see them live. They've got a new frontman i'm told, so I've not a clue what like they are now. The Lost Generation are pretty good aswel.

Brady Cole have split up. Their drummer Sean has gone down to study music in London and as far as i'm aware are not looking for anyone else.

Interestingly a US of A radio programme that broadcast live gigs. If you google Wolfgang's Vault (you can register for free) and get to listen to some interesting concerts going back to the 60s/70s.

I see that King Creosote will be a support act at Scone Palace for Runrig's concert at the end of August. I have bought my ticket - anyone else going?

Cheers Roberto - Silvermash isn't just a band from Fife, we're Rovers til death; we even sing about them. Recent live recording of our song 'Rougier' is now streaming on myspace: www.myspace.com/silvermash
