Fuzzy Friday – Our Top 5 for Easter

450726868-1Five things to do this weekend … our Friday culture guide. It’s been baltic. Time to warm toes on the fire of new music.

1. First up, the Burd recommends the Deadline Shakes …The SHAKES emerged in 2012 with debut single ‘Sweeten The Deal’ on Flowers In The Dustbin. The single gained widespread support, featuring on Steve Lamacq (6 Music) and Jim Gellatly’s In Demand show. Vic Galloway selected The Deadline Shakes as one of his Breakout Bands on Radio Scotland. They launch their single ‘Boy’ Single Launch @ 13th Note, Glasgow

2. The Edinburgh Science Festival gets into its stride this week with loads of free stuff …

3. More tunes include the wonderful Jack James, from Glasgow by way of Oregon….

Unstated_COVER4. Aye Write 12 – 20 April 2013. It’s always seemed more Barr’s Irn-Bru than Sartre’s Iron in the Soul, I mean does anyone really want to go and listen to Sandi Toksvig talk about anything? But there’s some great stuff: Mark Millar, Andrew Ferguson, an outing for Unstated with poet Don Paterson, novelists Margaret Elphinstone and Meaghan Delahunt, and novelist and performer Alan Bissett –  and loads more.

The Aye Write Festival, get your tickets booked or lose out.

5. If you haven’t already caught hold of Alan McCredie’s One Hundred Weeks project, you can go here now.

It’s a mixture of documentary and art which is charting the country through a process of great change from this young upcoming snapper who first made his name with Product magazine in the 90s. Alan says: “Whatever the result of the vote Scotland will be a different country afterward. These images will show a snapshot of the country in the run up to the referendum.”
