Rock Action's math-rock heroes return home
The Glasgow band have been reduced from four to three as their guitarist has left to become a full-time dentist (leaving Steev Livingstone to get to grips with his six string again). Yet, despite this setback new album Have Some Faith in Magic (Rock Action) has hardly been off the iPod since we got it.
As promised when we last interviewed them, the band have added words to some songs – albeit concealed beneath enough distortion to render them just another suggestive electronic layer to their sound.
We also know from their recent December slot supporting Mogwai at Glasgow’s Barrowland, and from having previously invited them to headline The List’s 25th Birthday Party at the Arches, that they can be relied on for a fairly amazing live show too. It’s definitely a date for the diary that the boys have announced another Arches gig – this time as a headline show in their hometown.
The Arches, Glasgow, Fri 11 May.
