If you missed The Poets on Vic's show the other night, there's still time to listen...

Cry Parrot, Tracer Trails and Watts of Goodwill present:

Sunday 27th November
Oran Mor, Glasgow
Doors 7.30pm - £5 entry

Advance tickets available in person at Monorail Music or online at We Got Tickets
Muscles of Joy are one of Glasgow’s best-kept secrets – a multi-instrumental, largely vocal-led all female ensemble.
Evoking a liberal spirit found in bands such as The Slits, Lizzy Mercier Descloux, Kleenex/Liliput and The Raincoats,
the band’s musical aesthetic is loose, abstract and emotively driven.

Their debut LP is a glorious collection of accidental pop, freak-folk, post-punk and avant-garde songs,
each with their own magical identity. This is a very special release, with each of the 522 edition in handmade silk-screen,
laser cut sleeves including a CD version of the LP.

Support for the show comes from Glasgow-based PALMS – whose debut 7” will be the next Watts of Goodwill release
- and a dj set from Jamie Grier - who co-produced the Muscles of Joy album.
