10 YEARS OF HYPERDUB: IKONIKA & SCRATCHA DVA
DROPKICK, The Galypaygos
Hailing from the east of Scotland, Dropkick have drawn on influences such as Wilco, Tom Petty and The Everly Brothers to produce their own blend of harmony-driven alt-country powerpop.Since their self-titled debut in 2001 they have released a further 10 albums and 3 EPs, had airplay on BBC Radio 2, performed live on Children In Need and have gained a significant cult following in Spain, a country the band has now toured 4 times. Their new album “Homeward” is released on 18th April 2014 and is the band’s most varied and accomplished collection of songs to date, demonstrating a growing maturity in their songwriting and arrangements. But it is their ear for melody and harmony that are their finest assets, helping Dropkick’s music appeal to a growing band of fans of all ages, all around the world. Following a Scottish tour in April and some festival dates in the summer, Dropkick will head over to Spain once again for a 5 date tour in October 2014.
The Galipaygos : ”Five young guests from Inverness who surprise us with uncut, refreshing americana. Besides Calexico they are influenced by Wilco, Ryan Adams, The Byrds, Dylan and the Band. More importantly they found their own unique sound. Nice three-voice harmonies …” Alt Country NL

MIRACLE GLASS COMPANY, Orient Machine, The Wellgreen
We are pleased to return to Edinburgh for our bi-monthly spectacular. THIS one could be our best yet with headliners Miracle Glass Company supported by classy Welsh outfit Orient Machine and Glaswegian psych/folk masters The Wellgreen.
Miracle Glass Company is a new and beautiful thing. 3 musicians united in a psychedelic frenzy of light and sound. Solid hypnotic bass vibrating on a thundercloud of drums, lit up by the jagged electric frenzy of an out of control Stratocaster. Somewhere, high above, 3 voices scream dark harmonies and whisper soft colours. The songs are completely newborn and at the same time you’ve met them before, in another time, in another world.
“Two of Edinburgh’s finest songwriters, William Douglas and Austen George, ably assisted by Andy Duncan on drums.” – Vic Galloway
