My T-Hi are flying over from Japan for a one off festival gig with their pop guitar take on life in Osaka. Short sharp guitar songs with big choruses from the world famous Shock And Awe and The Axidents celebrate 30 years since they initially formed in the first wave of post punk by bleaching their hair and growing beards
Unbelievably, the members of much-feted original Edinburgh indie band 35mm Dreams find themselves in the same place at the same time and will be performing a short set together for the first time in 30 years, they recently had a couple of songs released on the critically acclaimed compilation album "Messthetics 105 - D.I.Y. Scotland, 77-81" . As a special bonus the world premiere of the new Vic Godard Live Album "Live in Stereo" recorded in Glasgow last year will be playing in between bands
