The Alpacinos, Cathouse, Glasgow

Posted: June 18th, 2002, by Chris H

Hehe. Noisy Buckie-punk action last night with The Alpacinos at the Cathouse. It must not have been a school night because the place was packed. Easily the busiest I’ve seen it on a Monday and folk were jumping about too (gasp). Kids, eh. Too much cola and fizzy pop. Dead good set from the band: big fast and dumb with quality band banter. What’s the word? Oh aye, Fun. No kilts though. Grr! Punk! Yacuntya!

Electro-acoustic show at the RSAMD tonight.

Chris was hit by a brick as a child and lost the popular culture part of his brain. This affliction means he is only able to listen to obscure japanese noise bands and watch films with overtly complex storylines. His other interests include skulking, editing documents, taunting policemen and entering undecipherable handwriting contests. He lives in an enormous underground laboratory where he spends many hours trying to un-invent television.
