Name Vince Ray
Occupation Cult pop artist and leader of The Boneshakers
What’s the skinny on this bloke? The man is something of an underground legend when it comes to design, especially on the alternative scene. He designs album covers, mugs, guitars, T-shirts - even toilet seats get the Vince Ray treatment on his website. His designs are a twisted, mutant mix of rockabilly glam and dark goth humour.
What’s he doing at Club Noir? Well, he has anoher string to his bow in that he leads a rockabilly band called Vince Ray and The Boneshakers. The outfit is pretty much as you would expect a good old fashioned rockabilly band to sound: dirty as a slap in the bass, so to speak, with Vince doing his howling vodoo-esque vocals. Think The Cramps meets The Damned with The Legendary Shack Shakers thrown in for good measure.
Any tunes you may find yourself singing along to the next day? Corkers include Everybody Smokes In Hell and All Women Are Bad.
So what else is happening at Club Noir on the night? Well the theme is Exotica, and it’s the last night of Noir until October, so expect a big party atmosphere.
Vince Ray and The Boneshakers, Club Noir, Glasgow, Sat 2 Jun.
