Findo Gask

Posted: October 20th, 2005, by Marceline Smith

We played a gig last night with Findo Gask who were tremendous – well-dressed young men playing electro-dreampop. Lots of chiming but nicely dirty guitar, swooping fragile vocals and some awesomely great drumming. They reminded me very much of the Electro Group whose album I still dig out regularly. They sound a little less dreamy and a little more rocky on their MP3s but that’s in no way a bad thing. I look forward to records.

I have never gone onstage at 1am before but it was surprisingly good (next morning booked off work rather key though) and there was a great atmosphere and some brilliant records being played, so much so that I stayed out til 3am and walked home in giddy abandon. I’m glad I am getting over my fear of clubs but disappointed for the second time that no-one will dance to the Yummy Fur with me. I hate you all.

Marceline is the fierce, terrifying force behind diskant.net, laughing with disdain as she fires sharpened blades of sarcasm in all directions. Based in Scotland, her lexicon consists of words such as 'jings', 'aboot' and 'aye': our trained voice analysts are yet to decipher some of the relentless stream of genius uttered on a twenty-four hour basis. Marceline's hobbies include working too much and going out in bad weather.
