Low down, dirty, sleazy Blues Rock

Next few days...

We have been working hard for the past few weeks and focusing almost entirely on being ready for tomorrow. Its been a couple of years since we have been into a professional studio, and boy are we ready to get stuck into this. The last rehearsal was unreal, everything is falling into place, cannot wait.

Recording session one of our third album begins tomorrow...

New equipment...new noises to be made...new tunes unheard anywhere other than our two pairs of ears...and a good few tunes that have been played live many times this year

Its safe to say that yes we are looking forward to this...A LOT

Session two shouldn't be too long after this (fingers crossed)

Thanks for keeping it Dixie y'all

Hi-calorie Tour

It is with absolute great honour to be able to announce some dates we will be doing during October and November with 2 amazing Scottish acts. At present there are 4 dates the length of Scotland, there may be more dates added real soon...
 

As the above poster shows we are doing 4 shows in Bathgate, Perth, Aberdeen and Kilmarnock (so far), along with Aberdeen's own Full Fat and Kilmarnock's Matt Scott. We are lucky enough to have played a few shows with Matt over the past couple of years and just know this mixture with the absolutely outstanding Full Fat and ourselves are going to leave many people very happy at these live shows.

More details for each night will be on all the social media sites of each artist and also on our own gig page here as well.

Keep it Dixie y'all - but this time with loads of extra calories involved

May 2016

So far we have had a good month, how about yourself ?

We got to play a wee gig for a good mate in Dundee in a cracking boozer, met a truly awesome 3 piece band from Aberdeen, began planning Autumn tour with some very special people, announced to headline a night during King Tuts Summer Nights Festival and announced to be playing again at Jocktoberfest the first weekend in September...yeah as months go, not too shabby at all.
 

As you can see, what a line up throughout the whole run, but for me our night is something that really whets my appetite. It is the show that just screams 'GIG AND A HALF'..even if we weren't playing I would be paying good money to be going. For a bit of a favour we are offering an even better price of ticket for our night than you will find anywhere else. FOR ONLY FIVE POUNDS you can get access to the whole night (instead of the ticket priced of SEVEN POUNDS). These e-tickets are available right now from HERE, or will be available from a shop in Glasgow in the physical form in the very near future. 

Oh and if travelling through from West Lothian we already have a bus almost filled up, but can easily sort more if required. Book your ticket through us and get a very cheap bus return on the night itself.

Jocktoberfest....what can we say...we attended it last year and was blown away. The location, the atmosphere, the music, the food, the vibes every factor needed to make a great festival were all boxes ticked with a HUGE BIG MARK. So to be asked to come back again after our storming set that closed the second stage last year, was an absolute honour. After going on about how much we loved it last year, we already know of a good number travelling up for this year...but don't dither for tickets...at £35 for the WHOLE WEEKEND it is the bargain of the festival season. Once the tickets are gone, that is it.
 

Great line up yet again, honestly worth it...do not leave it too long before deciding to get a ticket

More news coming very, very soon.
